Glad to know that the "Image Import Refactor" is the essential BP in Mitaka. One more use case from OPNFV as following:

In OPNFV, one deployment scenario is each data center will be deployed with independent OpenStack instance, but shared identity management. That means there will be one Glance with its backend in each datacenter. This is to make each datacenter can work standalone as much as possible, even others crashed. An end user can upload image or create image from VM ( or volume ) in one OpenStack cloud, but want to reuse the image in another OpenStack cloud with different Glance and backend.

The use case for Image Import Refactor is:

l  An end user is able to import image from another Glance in another OpenStack cloud while sharing same identity management( KeyStone )

May this use case be took into account in the "Image Import Refactor". Thanks in advance.

Best Regards
Chaoyi Huang ( Joe Huang )
