Example Bay Template

This project is an example to demonstrate the necessary pieces of a Bay template. There are three key pieces to a bay template:

  1. Heat template - The Heat template that Magnum will use to generate a Bay.
  2. Template definition - Magnum's interface for interacting with the Heat template.
  3. Definition Entry Point - Used to advertise the available template definitions.

The Heat Template

The heat template is where most of the real work happens. The result of the Heat template should be a full Container Orchestration Environment.

The Template Definition

Template definitions are a mapping of Magnum object attributes and Heat template parameters, along with Magnum consumable template outputs. Each definition also denotes which Bay Types it can provide. Bay Types are how Magnum determines which of the enabled Template Definitions it will use for a given Bay.

The Definition Entry Point

Entry points are a standard discovery and import mechanism for Python objects. Each Template Definition should have an Entry Point in the magnum.template_definitions group. This example exposes it's Template Definition as example_template = example_template:ExampleTemplate in the magnum.template_definitions group.

Installing Bay Templates

Because Bay Templates are basically Python projects, they can be worked with like any other Python project. They can be cloned from version control and installed or uploaded to a package index and installed via utilities such as pip.

Enabling a template is as simple as adding it's Entry Point to the enabled_definitions config option in magnum.conf.:

# Setup python environment and install Magnum

$ virtualenv .venv
$ source .venv/bin/active
(.venv)$ git clone https://github.com/openstack/magnum.git
(.venv)$ cd magnum
(.venv)$ python setup.py install
