You can set/unset key value pairs to your volume type with the cinder type-key command. Or you can also set them in the Horizon Admin console under the Admin->Volumes->Volume Types tab, then select “View Extra Specs” Action.
$cinder help type-key usage: cinder type-key <vtype> <action> <key=value> [<key=value> ...] Sets or unsets extra_spec for a volume type. Positional arguments: <vtype> Name or ID of volume type. <action> The action. Valid values are 'set' or 'unset.' <key=value> The extra specs key and value pair to set or unset. For unset, specify only the key. e.g. cinder type-key GoldVolumeType set volume_backend_name=my_iscsi_backend ~Kurt From: Pradip Mukhopadhyay [mailto:pradip.inte...@gmail.com] Sent: Sunday, December 07, 2014 4:36 AM To: OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Subject: Re: [openstack-dev] [Cinder] Listing of backends Thanks! One more question. Is there any equivalent API to add keys to the volume-type? I understand we have APIs for creating volume-type? But how about adding key-value pair (say I want to add-key to the volume-type as backend-name="my_iscsi_backend" ?

I don't believe the python-cinderclient side work has been done yet, nor anything in Horizon, but the API itself is now there.

There is, I guess, no API for get the list of backends.
