Sphinx Oslo Sample Policy Generation¶
This extension relies on
oslopolicy-sample-generator, which requires
configuration of policies in code to function. Refer to the Usage
guide for more information.
oslo.policy includes a sphinx extension to generate a sample policy file at the
beginning of each sphinx build. This sample policy file can then be included in
your documents as a raw file, for example, via the
To activate the extension add
oslo_policy.sphinxpolicygen to the list of
extensions in your sphinx
conf.py. Once enabled, you need to define two
policy_generator_config_file = '../../etc/nova/nova-policy-generator.conf'
sample_policy_basename = '_static/nova'
Path to an configuration file used with the
oslopolicy-sample-generatorutility. This can be a full path or a value relative to the documentation source directory (
app.srcdir). If this option is not specified or is invalid then the sample policy file generation will be skipped.
To handle cases where multiple files need to be generated, this value can be a list of two-part tuples containing the path to the configuration file and the base name for the output file (in this case,
sample_policy_basenameshould not be set).
Base name of the output file. This name will be appended with a
.policy.yaml.sampleextension to generate the final output file, and the path is relative to the documentation source directory (
app.srcdir). As such, using the above example, the policy file will be output to
_static/nova.policy.yaml.sample. If this option is not specified, the file will be output to
Boolean value, default False, controls if the output should include deprecated policy information or values, as these can be confusing and misleading in some cases.
Once configured, you can include this configuration file in your source:
Here is a sample policy file.
