The oslopolicy-policy-generator command can be used to generate a policy file that shows the effective policy in use. This is generated by merging the registered defaults and policies loaded from a configuration file.


-h, --help

Show help message and exit.

--config-dir DIR

Path to a config directory to pull *.conf files from. This file set is sorted, so as to provide a predictable parse order if individual options are overridden. The set is parsed after the file(s) specified via previous --config-file, arguments hence overridden options in the directory take precedence.

This option must be set from the command-line.

--config-file PATH

Path to a config file to use. Multiple config files can be specified, with values in later files taking precedence. Defaults to None. This option must be set from the command-line.

--namespace NAMESPACE

Option namespace under “oslo.policy.enforcer” in which to look for a policy.Enforcer.

--output-file OUTPUT_FILE

Path of the file to write to. Defaults to stdout.

oslopolicy-policy-generator --namespace keystone

To generate the effective policy file and output directly to a file:

oslopolicy-policy-generator \
  --namespace keystone \
  --output-file keystone-policy.yaml

To show the additional options and arguments supported by oslopolicy-policy-generator:
