Provisioning Openstack instances

Is Foreman able to provision / manage OpenStack instances ?

Expected outcome:
The Openstack plugin is not maintained anymore and 'no longer useful"
What / how are one adding Openstack provisioning capabilities to Foreman?

Foreman and Proxy versions:

Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:

Other relevant data:
[e.g. logs from Foreman and/or the Proxy, modified templates, commands issued, etc]
(for logs, surround with three back-ticks to get proper formatting, e.g.)


Not sure what openstack plugin you mean. If you install foreman-openstack package and restart your Foreman, you should see openstack as a provider, when you define new compute resource.

There is only one that I found

…and here is what it says prominently at the beginning of the page

“…The code is retained for posterity / historical interest, but it’s outdated and no longer useful with Foreman…”


You don’t need this in order to provision on openstack. Just run the installer with --enable-foreman-compute-openstack and then define new compute resource with provider set to OpenStack.
