Add Pagination To Other Resources

Add Pagination To Other Resources

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/cinder/+spec/add-pagination-to-other-resource

This spec aims to continue the work that we did in Liberty, adding pagination support to other cinder resources.

Problem description

In Liberty release, we have added pagination to backups and snapshots according bp[1]. There are still some work that hasn’t been done yet. In Mitaka, we intend to add pagination support to CG, Volume Type and Qos specs.

Use Cases

In large scale cloud systems, end users and manage system that’s on top of Cinder could make quick querying by using pagination, filter and sort functions to improve performance of querying.

Proposed change

  • Consistency Group: Refactor current implementation, using DB pagination querying, and add support to filter and sort in querying request.
  • Volume Type: Add pagination and sort support in querying request.
  • Qos Specs: Add pagination, filter and sort in querying request.
  • Add sql pagination querying support as we did in backup and snapshot.

            "resource": [{xxx}, {xxx}, ..., {xxx}]
