Designate Horizon UI bits

  1. Package the designatedashboard by running:

    python sdist

    This will create a python egg in the dist folder, which can be used to install on the horizon machine or within horizon’s python virtual environment.

    – or –

    Install directly from source by running “python –install”

    Note: On some systems python may throw an error like

    ‘Exception: Versioning for this project requires either an sdist tarball, or access

    to an upstream git repository’

    this seems to be a result of mismatched pbr versioning. A hacking workaround for development purposes is replacing the pbr call with a hard-coded version (e.g. ‘1.0.1’) in designatedashboard/

  2. Copy panel plugin files into your Horizon config. These files can be found in designatedashboard/enabled and should be copied to /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/local/enabled or the equivalent directory for your openstack-dashboard install.

  3. Make sure your keystone catalog contains endpoints for service type ‘dns’. If no such endpoints are found, the designatedashboard panels will not render.

  4. (Optional) Copy the designate policy file into horizon’s policy files folder, and add this config:

    'dns': 'designate_policy.json',
  5. (Optional) Within your horizon settings file(s) (either the local settings or the other, add the line below. This will make it so the record create/update screen uses a drop down of your floating ip addresses instead of a free form text field:

    DESIGNATE = { 'records_use_fips': True }
