Developing a new Deploy Step

To support customized deployment step, implement a new method in an interface class and use the decorator deploy_step defined in ironic/drivers/base.py. For example, we will implement a do_nothing deploy step in the AgentDeploy class.

class AgentDeploy(AgentDeployMixin, base.DeployInterface):
    ...

    @base.deploy_step(priority=200, argsinfo={
        'test_arg': {
            'description': (
                "This is a test argument."
            ),
            'required': True
        }
    })
    def do_nothing(self, task, **kwargs):
        return None

After deployment of the baremetal node, check the updated deploy steps:

openstack baremetal node show $node_ident -f json -c driver_internal_info

The above command outputs the driver_internal_info as following:

{
  "driver_internal_info": {
    ...
    "deploy_steps": [
      {
        "priority": 200,
        "interface": "deploy",
        "step": "do_nothing",
        "argsinfo":
          {
            "test_arg":
              {
                "required": True,
                "description": "This is a test argument."
              }
          }
      },
      {
        "priority": 100,
        "interface": "deploy",
        "step": "deploy",
        "argsinfo": null
      }
    ],
    "deploy_step_index": 1
  }
}

Note

Similarly, clean steps can be implemented using the clean_step decorator.
