Bug Description


in my OpenStack Juno I have created a snapshot that gone into status='deleted' after creation.
When I try to delete this image I got a 404 "Image not found " and I cannot delete image in no way.

In "images" table DB the record fields are:

*************************** 1. row ***************************
              id: 5c79d539-f256-422c-b376-4c27c1d06b96
            name: my_image
            size: 901840896
          status: deleted
       is_public: 0
      created_at: 2015-05-07 15:24:45
      updated_at: 2015-05-07 15:25:18
      deleted_at: NULL
         deleted: 0
     disk_format: qcow2
container_format: bare
        checksum: 4483088a8840fa463d518085ae515b7b
           owner: fdd21cc5a7b144b8920cc815ab8ea2a9
        min_disk: 1
         min_ram: 0
       protected: 0
    virtual_size: NULL

For replicate this issue, I have created an image and I have change the status (via mysql UPDATE) from "active" to "deleted".

UPDATE images SET status='deleted' WHERE id = '5c79d539-f256-422c-b376-4c27c1d06b96';

and if I run:

# glance image-delete 5c79d539-f256-422c-b376-4c27c1d06b96

result is:

  <title>404 Not Found</title>
  <h1>404 Not Found</h1>
  Image 5c79d539-f256-422c-b376-4c27c1d06b96 not found.<br /><br />

</html> (HTTP 404): Unable to delete image 5c79d539-f256-422c-b376-4c27c1d06b96

When you try to take a snapshot , is the snapshot fails to create and then it goes to delete stated ?

If you are able to see the deleted snapshot in the glance image list , then glance image-delete should works.

If you can't see your deleted snapshot in the list, then if you try to delete that , glance will show Image not found.

I've come across a deployment in this state as well: the image shows in "deleted" state in the image-list, and is not deletable by image-delete. It is not existent in the backend (RBD).

Regardless of how it came to be in this state, "not found" is not a very useful error (since the user can see it in the image list and examine the image info).

any solution to this or we are still in dark ages where we can't delete a image?

Connecting to the DB and deleting the record or change the status to Deleted is the worst thing you can do
