Subject [jira] [Created] (LIBCLOUD-1018) EC2 Create Node Size String
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2018 16:24:00 GMT

-------------------------------------

             Summary: EC2 Create Node Size String
                 Key: LIBCLOUD-1018
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LIBCLOUD-1018
             Project: Libcloud
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Sean Marlow


Right now create_node in the EC2 driver requires instance size to be in a static list in order
for a node to be created.

Given the almost constant influx of new instance types in EC2 and the relatively slow release
cycle of Libcloud it would be nice to remove this requirement.

Maintaining the list in Libcloud is nice but it shouldn't block users from launching an instance
with a new instance type.

Instead I believe the method should also accept a size string which gets passed directly to
EC2 REST endpoints. Let EC2 raise an exception if an invalid instance type is provided.

I can provide a patch if this is agreeable?
