Hi there,
currently the EC2 and OCCI cloud interfaces seem to work like this:

  1. A user can list the images uploaded herself, meanwhile images uploaded by another
    user don't show up within the image list.
  2. However if a user knows the image id of an image uploaded by someone else she
    can use it to create a new vm.

From my point of view (in its simplest form) the image authorization might/should
follow the authorization schema implemented by virtual networks, eg.:

  1. It would be useful to enable shared images, eg. to let users to use images
    uploaded by oneadmin. What's more it would be handy to show such images in the
    interface, too (eg. econe-describe-images and occi-storage).
  2. However it might provide more privacy, if the system prevented users from using
    images uploaded by other regular users.

hi gyula

Thanks for the feedback, this totally needed. In fact it is related with #200. This issue will track the porting of the new functionality to the Cloud interfaces.
