»Volumes HTTP API

The /volume and /volumes endpoints are used to query for and interact with volumes.

»List Volumes

This endpoint lists all volumes.

MethodPathProduces
GET/v1/volumesapplication/json

The table below shows this endpoint's support for blocking queries and required ACLs.

Blocking QueriesACL Required
YESnamespace:csi-list-volume

»Parameters

  • type (string: "") - Specifies the type of volume to query. Currently only supports csi. This is specified as a query string parameter. Returns an empty list if omitted.

  • node_id (string: "") - Specifies a string to filter volumes based on an Node ID prefix. Because the value is decoded to bytes, the prefix must have an even number of hexadecimal characters (0-9a-f). This is specified as a query string parameter.

  • plugin_id (string: "") - Specifies a string to filter volumes based on a plugin ID prefix. Because the value is decoded to bytes, the prefix must have an even number of hexadecimal characters (0-9a-f). This is specified as a query string parameter.
