 Hello Steve,

Thanks for your response.

Yes,we do have an resource class defined in Heat to upload an image, but in this case we can only use the image from URL where as using --file  option to glance image-create we can upload a disk image from local filesystem to glance.

$ glance image-create 
  --file <FILE>         Local file that contains disk image to be uploaded
                        during creation. Alternatively, images can be passed
                        to the client via stdin.

However GlanceImage class has only an option to upload the image from location/URL.

You may need to provide more details - heat already accepts a location


If you have an image locally, you probably need to either make it available
via a web server or upload it to swift, then pass the URL to heat.

It doesn't really make sense to upload the entire image via heat from a
local path, if that's what you mean?
