Identifying Rackspace Standard Images


Standard images are images supplied by Rackspace and supported for your Rackspace Cloud account's type and service level.  The distinction between standard and non-standard images is described in detail in the Knowledge Center article Rackspace Standard and Non-Standard Images.

The set of standard images is not the same for all Rackspace Cloud accounts.  The standard images for an account differ based on the account's support level (Managed Infrastructure or Managed Cloud Service Level) and whether or not the account uses RackConnect.

How can I see my standard images?

The following filters in the Cloud Control Panel, Cloud Servers API, and Cloud Images API enable you to see which images are standard images for your account.

Cloud Control Panel

When you are building a server in the Cloud Control Panel, select the Rackspace tab when choosing the base image to list only standard images.

Cloud Servers API

You can identify standard images when using the Cloud Servers API v2 by making a List Images request and filtering it to list images that have their type value set to BASE.

Cloud Images API

You can identify standard images when using the Cloud Images API v2 by making a List Images request and filtering it to list images that have their visibility value set to public.

Support Implications
