API Whitelist

APIs provided by the OpenStack Community are incomplete, and many APIs of earlier OpenStack releases exist in the code but are not maintained by the OpenStack Community. In addition, the APIs may have bugs. To ensure that all provided APIs are mature and can be commercially used, Open Telekom Cloud introduces the whitelist mechanism for OpenStack native APIs to determine the APIs to be opened. OpenStack native APIs in the whitelist have passed strict tests and can be commercially used. Only Open Telekom Cloud APIs in the whitelist are open to users.

For example, the Nova API is listed in the following table.
