Current Series Release Notes

New Features

  • The service setup in keystone for heat will now be executed through delegation to the heat_service_setup_host which, by default, is localhost (the deploy host). Deployers can opt to rather change this to the utility container by implementing the following override in user_variables.yml.

    heat_service_setup_host: "{{ groups['utility_all'][0] }}"
  • The role now supports using the distribution packages for the OpenStack services instead of the pip ones. This feature is disabled by default and can be enabled by simply setting the heat_install_method variable to distro.

  • Support separate oslo.messaging services for RPC and Notifications to enable operation of separate and different messaging backend servers in heat.

Deprecation Notes

  • The variable heat_requires_pip_packages is no longer required and has therefore been removed.

  • The rabbitmq server parameters have been replaced by corresponding oslo.messaging RPC and Notify parameters in order to abstract the messaging service from the actual backend server deployment. - heat_oslomsg_rpc_servers replaces heat_rabbitmq_servers - heat_oslomsg_rpc_port replaces heat_rabbitmq_port - heat_oslomsg_rpc_use_ssl replaces heat_rabbitmq_use_ssl - heat_oslomsg_rpc_userid replaces heat_rabbitmq_userid - heat_oslomsg_rpc_vhost replaces heat_rabbitmq_vhost - heat_oslomsg_rpc_password replaces heat_rabbitmq_password - heat_oslomsg_notify_servers replaces heat_rabbitmq_telemetry_servers - heat_oslomsg_notify_port replaces heat_rabbitmq_telemetry_port - heat_oslomsg_notify_use_ssl replaces heat_rabbitmq_telemetry_use_ssl - heat_oslomsg_notify_userid replaces heat_rabbitmq_telemetry_userid - heat_oslomsg_notify_vhost replaces heat_rabbitmq_telemetry_vhost - heat_oslomsg_notify_password replaces heat_rabbitmq_telemetry_password
