You can use CLI commands or the VMware Integrated OpenStack dashboard to import images.

To be successfully imported, verify that the image is in one of the natively supported image formats (ISO, OVA, VMDK) or in a format that can be converted during the import process (RAW, QCOW2, VDI, VHD).


You can import images directly in the VMware Integrated OpenStack Horizon dashboard.


You can make images available for use in instances by importing images to the Image Service datastore .


You can import images in unsupported image formats such as RAW, QCOW2, VDI, or VHD using the glance-import tool in the CLI. This tool automatically converts the source image to the VMDK format.
