Increasing volume via API

Reviewed on 02 June 2021Published on 10 January 2020
Requirements:
  1. Inspect the volume and verify its name, size and if the type is b_ssd by running the following request.

    curl -q -H "X-Auth-Token: $SECRET_KEY" -X GET https://api.scaleway.com/instance/v1/zones/<REGION>/volumes/<VOLUME_ID>
    Note:

    Replace <REGION> with the geographical region of the cloud instance. This value can either be fr-par-1 or fr-par-2 for instances located in Paris, nl-ams-1 for instances located in Amsterdam, or pl-waw-1 for instances located in Warsaw. Replace <VOLUME_ID> with the unique identifier of the volume, which can be found on the Scaleway console under Instances > Volumes > More Info (for the selected volume).

    The following response should appear as an output:

    {"volume": {"creation_date": "2020-06-02T08:04:50.094118+00:00", "server": null, "id": "VOLUME_ID", "size": 25000000000, "name": "myAwesomeVolume", "zone": "<REGION>", "export_uri": null, "volume_type": "b_ssd", "modification_date": "2020-06-02T08:04:50.094118+00:00", "state": "available", "organization": "<ORGANIZATION_ID>"}}
  2. To modify the volume size, run the request below:

    curl https://api.scaleway.com/instance/v1/zones/<REGION>/volumes/<VOLUME_ID> -H "X-Auth-Token: $SECRET_KEY" -X PATCH -H 'Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8' --data '{ "name":"new_name", "size":26000000000 }'

    Replace <REGION>and <VOLUME_ID> following the guidelines mentioned previously and replace the existing size value with the new one.

    Note:

    You can use the same request to change the name of you volume by replacing new_name by another of your choice. If you do not wish to change the volume name, erase "name":"new_name",from the request before running it.

    A response appears confirming the changes:

    {"volume": {"creation_date": "2020-06-02T08:04:50.094118+00:00", "server": null, "id": "<VOLUME_ID>", "size": 26000000000, "name": "new_name", "zone": "<REGION>", "export_uri": null, "volume_type": "b_ssd", "modification_date": "2020-06-02T08:08:27.385208+00:00", "state": "resizing", "organization": "<ORGANIZATION_ID"}}
