OpenStack Image Registry and Delivery Service (Glance)

Protect/Unprotect an image

Registered by Glen Campbell on 2011-07-22

Some images are more valuable than others, and Glance should provide a mechanism to protect those. Think of it as a "read-only" setting for an image. For example, a user creates an image to be used as a "gold master" from which to build other servers; that user should be able to flag that image as "protected" or "readonly" and Glance should return an error when a DELETE is issued against the resource.

The ancillary function "unprotect" or "read/write" must also be provided so that images can be unprotected and then deleted if desired.
