Configuring the glance-download method
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
To enable the ``glance-download`` import method, make sure that it is included
in the list of methods in the ``enabled_import_methods`` option, and that all
the options described above are set properly.
Additionally, you have the following configuration available.
Depending your needs on image properties you may configure addional properties
to be copied from the remote image to the local image.
You can do this by configuring options in the
``[glance_download_opts]`` section of the **glance-image-import.conf** file.
``extra_properties`` options is a list of properties that should be copied from
the remote image. The properties listed should be read as properties that
"start with" as it allows you to set a namespace instead of explicitly listing
each property of the namespace.
Default values are :
``['hw_', 'trait:', 'os_distro', 'os_secure_boot', 'os_type']``
If you decide to set this option the default values will be totally ignored
unless you explicitly set them.
.. note::
The ``extra_properties`` option will ignore namespaces reserved by glance,
meaning that all the properties starting with ``os_glance`` won't be set
on the local image.
.. note::
The **glance-image-import.conf** is an optional file. You can find an
example file named glance-image-import.conf.sample in the **etc/**
subdirectory of the Glance source code tree. Make sure that you are looking
in the correct branch for the OpenStack release you are working with.
