/images

Create a Image with specified configuration.

There are two modes of creation, one mode you either provide some source (URL, vmdisk, or uploaded file) or you just create the metadata for the image.
If a UUID is specified for the Image, this operation will be idempotent.

This is an asynchronous operation that results in the creation of a task object. The UUID of this task object is returned as the response of this operation. This task can be monitored by using the /tasks/poll API.
