Virtual Machine and Network Services API

The goal of this API is to manage virtual machines and their connectivity. To that end, several top-level resources are defined:

  • Virtual Network
  • Virtual Machine
  • Server Group
  • Security Group
  • Key Pair
  • Volume
  • Public IP Adresses

Each top-level resource is contained into a project and has its own lifecycle.

All dates are in UTC (timezone Zulu). Their format is "yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSS'Z'", example: 2022-04-12T16:42:23.345Z.

Some resources are modeled by two distinct classes (in the Swagger model) in order to represent two facets of the object:

  • one class is used in create/update API requests (class name ends with "InRequest"),
  • the other class is used in API responses (class name ends with "InResponse").

The API also offers services to consult catalog of geographical zones, images and flavors. Basic recipe to create and manage a virtual machine:

  1. Create a server group
  2. Create a virtual network
  3. Create a key pair
  4. Create one or several security groups that contain security rules (optional)
  5. Create one or several volumes (optional)
  6. Reserve one or several public IP addresses (optional)
  7. Create a virtual machine with its interfaces, its key pair, its security groups, its volume, and its public IPs
  8. Apply actions on the virtual machine or on its interfaces


Catalog of pre-defined flavors offered by Orange. A flavor is a virtual hardware profile (RAM, CPU, disk...) that is applied to the VM.


Catalog of virtual machine images that are either public images (provided by Orange) or private. Private images must be uploaded to Orange repository beforehand.


Manage jobs that process asynchronous requests on resources


Key Pair provides a secure way to push a SSH key directly on the VM. This key pair can be uploaded by the user or created automatically on the fly. IMPORTANT: After the Virtual Machine is created with a key pair ref, the key Pair cannot be changed for the Virtual Machine. If the key is lost, then you must re-create the Virtual Machine.


Reserve and release public IP addresses


Set of IP filtering rules to protect a Virtual Machine interface .


Filtering rule describing the flows that are authorized on a VM interface.


In case of a VNF based on several VM, ServerGroup provide the capability to group VM on the same compute or to separate them according to certain policy.


Manage virtual machine


Virtual network is used to interconnect VM together via a layer 2 and/or to implement an IP/MPLS VPN (internet / customer VPN..)


A volume is a detachable block storage device, similar to a USB hard drive. You can attach a volume to only one instance.


Catalog of geographical zones where virtual machines can be deployed.
