python-troveclient 1.0.8

Client library for OpenStack DBaaS API

Python bindings to the OpenStack Trove API

This is a client for the OpenStack Trove API. There's a Python API (the
``troveclient`` module), and a command-line script (``trove``). Each
implements 100% of the OpenStack Trove API.

See the `OpenStack CLI guide`_ for information on how to use the ``trove``
command-line tool. You may also want to look at the
`OpenStack API documentation`_.

The project is hosted on `Launchpad`_, where bugs can be filed. The code is
hosted on `Github`_. Patches must be submitted using `Gerrit`_, *not* Github
pull requests.

This code a fork of `Jacobian's python-cloudservers`__ If you need API support
for the Rackspace API solely or the BSD license, you should use that repository.

Command-line API

Installing this package gets you a shell command, ``trove``, that you
can use to interact with any Rackspace compatible API (including OpenStack).

You'll need to provide your OpenStack username and password. You can do this
with the ``--os-username``, ``--os-password`` and ``--os-tenant-name``
params, but it's easier to just set them as environment variables::

export OS_USERNAME=openstack
export OS_PASSWORD=yadayada
export OS_TENANT_NAME=myproject

You will also need to define the authentication url with ``--os-auth-url``
and the version of the API with ``--version``. Or set them as an environment
variables as well::

export OS_AUTH_URL=

Since Keystone can return multiple regions in the Service Catalog, you
can specify the one you want with ``--os-region-name`` (or
``export OS_REGION_NAME``). It defaults to the first in the list returned.

You'll find complete documentation on the shell by running
``trove help``::
usage: trove [--version] [--debug] [--os-username <auth-user-name>]
[--os-password <auth-password>]
[--os-tenant-name <auth-tenant-name>]
[--os-tenant-id <auth-tenant-id>] [--os-auth-url <auth-url>]
[--os-region-name <region-name>] [--service-type <service-type>]
[--service-name <service-name>] [--bypass-url <bypass-url>]
[--database-service-name <database-service-name>]
[--endpoint-type <endpoint-type>]
[--os-database-api-version <database-api-ver>]
[--os-cacert <ca-certificate>] [--retries <retries>] [--json]
<subcommand> ...

Python API

There's also a complete Python API, but it has not yet been documented.

Quick-start using keystone::

# use v2.0 auth with")
>>> from troveclient.v1 import client
>>> nt = client.Client(USER, PASS, TENANT, AUTH_URL, service_type="database")
>>> nt.instances.list()
