Generalized filters


Cinder introduced generalized resource filters since Pike.
Administrator can control the allowed filter keys for
non-admin user by editing the filter configuration
file. Also since this feature, cinder will raise
400 BadRequest if any invalid query filter is

How do I configure the
filter keys?

resource_query_filters_file is introduced to cinder to
represent the filter config file path, and the config file accepts the
valid filter keys for non-admin user with json

   "volume": ["name", "status", "metadata"]

the key volume (singular) here stands for the resource
you want to apply and the value accepts an list which contains the
allowed filters collection, once the configuration file is changed and
API service is restarted, cinder will only recognize this filter keys,
NOTE: the default configuration file will include all
the filters we already enabled.

Which filter keys are

Not all the attributes are supported at present, so we add this table
below to indicate which filter keys are valid and can be used in the

Since v3.34 we could use ‘~’ to indicate supporting querying resource
by inexact match, for example, if we have a configuration file as

   "volume": ["name~"]

User can query volume both by name=volume and
name~=volume, and the volumes named volume123
and a_volume123 are both valid for second input while
neither are valid for first. The supported APIs are marked with “*”
below in the table.
