Unfortunately, there's none as of now. I found this the hard way that you cannot trivially find all possible 'extra_spec' key values that can be set by `nova flavor-key` I did gross things like this: $ grep hw\: nova/virt/hardware.py nova/tests/unit/virt/test_hardware.py | sort | uniq And, obviously the above will only find you 'hw' properties. Daniel Berrangé once suggested that image properties and flavor extra specs need to be 'objectified' to alleviate this. > I found plenty of documentation on how to list, create, delete, etc. > flavor extra-spec and image metadata, but the only place where I found a > list (is that complete?) of the accepted (i.e. that trigger specific > feature in nova) key-value pairs is in horizon dashboard, when logged > with admin credential. > > I am a bit confused on how someone working to add a new key/value pair > should proceed. > -- /kashyap __________________________________________________________________________ OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Unsubscribe: openstack-dev-requ...@lists.openstack.org?subject:unsubscribe http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
