Notes

Note

  • To create a new volume at least the name and size_gb options are required.
  • A volume can be created and attached to a server in the same task.
  • Instead of the api_token parameter the CLOUDSCALE_API_TOKEN environment variable can be used.
  • All operations are performed using the cloudscale.ch public API v1.
  • For details consult the full API documentation: https://www.cloudscale.ch/en/api/v1.
  • A valid API token is required for all operations. You can create as many tokens as you like using the cloudscale.ch control panel at https://control.cloudscale.ch.
