Here are the results of the survey:
OpenStack Glance specify-an-image-ID-at-image-creation survey
This is a quick survey to find out how many people use the ability to
specify a specific image_id at the time of image creation in Glance.
Note that if you manage multiple clouds, you can fill this out
multiple times with information about each. We encourage you to do so
to help us get an accurate idea of how widely this feature is used.
Thanks in advance for your help!
This survey closes at 23:59 UTC on Tuesday 3 October 2017.
Responses: 8 (1 response == 12.5%)
Size of deployment (in tenants):
small (1-10): 0%
medium (11-100): 12.5%
large (101-1000): 62.5%
XL (1001+): 25%
As an operator, do you use the functionality that allows you to set an
image to a specific image_id upon image creation?
Do you know if your end users use this functionality?
don't know: 37.5%
Are you aware of OSSN-0075, that explains how this functionality is a
Yes, I already knew about it: 50%
No, I wasn't aware (but I am now!): 50%
If a policy were introduced to govern this functionality, what would you do?
Leave the policy unrestricted, I don't need to purge my database: 0%
Leave the policy unrestricted, I can trust my users not to try the
OSSN-0075 exploit: 0%
Leave the policy unrestricted because my users rely on this functionality: 0%
Restrict usage to admin users only: 12.5%
Restrict usage to admin users and other specific trusted users: 50%
Restrict usage completely (allow none), we don't need this functionality: 37.5%
Does it bother you that if a policy were introduced to govern this
functionality, it could present an interoperability problem?
It bothers me, but I don't think this is a widely-used functionality,
so it's OK: 12.5%
It bothers me, but security trumps interoperability in this case, so
it's OK: 75%
It bothers me enough that I'd prefer that this not be fixed by
introducing a policy, even if that means not fixing it at all: 0%
It bothers me enough that I'd prefer this be fixed by disallowing the
functionality completely so that it could not be used by any user
(even an admin) in any cloud: 12.5%
