Mistral Dashboard Installation Guide

Mistral dashboard is the plugin for Horizon where it is easily possible to control mistral objects by interacting with web user interface.

Setup Instructions

This instruction assumes that Horizon is already installed and it’s installation folder is <horizon>. Detailed information on how to install Horizon can be found at Horizon Installation

The installation folder of Mistral Dashboard will be referred to as <mistral-dashboard>.

The following should get you started:

  1. Clone the repository into your local OpenStack directory:

    $ git clone https://github.com/openstack/mistral-dashboard.git
  2. Install mistral-dashboard:

    $ sudo pip install -e <mistral-dashboard>

Or if you’re planning to run Horizon server in a virtual environment (see below):

$ tox -evenv -- pip install -e ../mistral-dashboard/

and then:

$ cp -b <mistral-dashboard>/mistraldashboard/enabled/_50_mistral.py \
  1. Since Mistral only supports Identity v3, you must ensure that the dashboard points the proper OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_URL in <horizon>/openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py file:

        "identity": 3,
  2. Also, make sure you have changed OPENSTACK_HOST to point to your Keystone server and check all endpoints are accessible. You may want to change OPENSTACK_ENDPOINT_TYPE to “publicURL” if some of them are not.

  3. When you’re ready, you would need to either restart your apache:

    $ sudo service apache2 restart

or run the development server (in case you have decided to use local horizon):

$ cd ../horizon/
$ tox -evenv -- python manage.py runserver
