I'm also trying a same kind of an approach, my question was also based on
that. I was thinking of invoking Glance API s directly from the UI, not
going through Horizon webserver. Earlier by Horizon I was referring to
the UI only.

Therefore, there is a practical usage of this kind of a feature, isn't it?



 All the best,

Horizon already has what you just described. You can load images into glance by 
providing a URI. It's the Create Image button on the Images table.
