      Hi Max,

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, it is your account id.

    I get this error:
    “local variable ‘ask_for_snapshot’ referenced before assignment”
    I moved the ‘if’ paragraph line 98-104 inside the ‘if’ on line 96, this got rid of the error

    also probably not important but,
    line 74 “if snapshot_creation<0:" but in your example above is set to 3

    Thanks for the script, very useful 🙂

    Hi Onur,

    Thanks for your great work.

    I am trying to the get list of snapshots related to particular volumes. But the above script includes snap creation and other stuff how can I modify it to list only snapshots related to volumes.
