Support for OpenStack regions

Murano supports multi-region deployment. If OpenStack setup has several regions it is possible to choose the region to deploy an application.

There is the new option in the murano configuration file:

  • home_region - default region name used to get services endpoints. The region where murano-api resides.

Now murano has two possible ways to deploy apps in different regions:

  1. Deploy an application in the current murano region.

  2. Associate environments with regions.

Deploy an app in the current region

Each region has a copy of murano services and its own RabbitMQ for api to engine communication. In this case application will be deployed to the same region that murano run in.

Associate environments with regions

Murano services are in one region but environments can be associated with different regions. There are two new properties in the class io.murano.Environment:

  • regionConfigs - a dict with RabbitMQ settings for each region. The structure of the agentRabbitMq part of the dict is identical to [rabbitmq] section in the murano.conf file. For example:

          login: admin
          password: admin

    User can store such configs as YAML or JSON files. These config files must be stored in a special folder that is configured in [engine] section of murano.conf file under class_configs key and must be named using %FQ class name%.json or %FQ class name%.yaml pattern.

  • region - region name to deploy an app. It can be passed when creating environment via CLI:

    murano environment-create environment_name --region RegionOne

    If it is not specified a value from home_region option of murano.conf file will be used.
