Queries Details About an Image


Details about a private or public image can be queried.


The token obtained from IAM is valid for only 24 hours. If you want to use a token for authentication, you can cache it to avoid frequently calling the IAM API.

Involved APIs

If you use a token for authentication, you must obtain the token and add X-Auth-Token to the request header of the IMS API when making an API call.

  • IAM API used to obtain the token

    URI format: POST https://IAM endpoint/v3/auth/tokens

  • IMS API used to query image details (Native OpenStack API)

    URI format: GET https://IMS endpoint/v2/images/Image ID


  1. Obtain the token.

  2. Send GET https://IMS endpoint/v2/images/Image ID.

  3. Add X-Auth-Token to the request header.

    An example request is as follows: https://IMS endpoint/v2/images/33ad552d-1149-471c-8190-ff6776174a00.

  4. Refer to "Querying Image Details (Native OpenStack API)" in Image Management Service API Reference for parameter descriptions and response details.
