Images Sync

This feature deploys Openstack Images Sync, a tool for synchronizing images from a SimpleStreams source to Sunbeam.

Note: This feature is currently only supported in channel 2024.1/edge of the openstack snap.

Enable Images Sync

To enable Images Sync, run the following command:

sunbeam enable images-sync

Disable Images Sync

To disable Images Sync, run the following command:

sunbeam disable images-sync

Caution: Disabling Images Sync will not remove synchronized images from Glance (the underlying OpenStack image service).


Users need the role reader to list images.

To list images added by the Images Sync plugin, run the following command:

openstack image list | grep auto-sync/
