OpenStack Configurations


Multiple OpenStack tenants share cloud accounts in Workload Manager. At deployment time, Workload Manager allows you to select the required OpenStack tenant. You can create access key pairs in the OpenStack console so these key pairs are visible when submitting jobs using Workload Manager.

In this case, the concept of Tenant Name and Tenant ID is specific to the OpenStack cloud, not Workload Manager. 
These two fields specify the OpenStack project information (TenantName and TenantId in the APIs).

OpenStack Settings

This feature uses the following OpenStack Settings:

  • OpenStack Admin sharing multiple Projects (tenants) for deployment. In the following image, ven is the cloud account user and the ven (project) is paired up with the su (project) by the OpenStack admin. Consequently, ven can deploy applications to both projects as can su:

  • OpenStack Access & Security Key Pairs (visible in Workload Manager when submitting jobs):

Workload Manager Tenant Name or ID Deployment

When configuring cloud accounts in the Workload Manager UI, you can provide the OpenStack project name as the Tenant Name. Alternately, you can provide the Tenant ID as well. If set, the Default Tenant ID (OpenStack setting in Workload Manager) has precedence  over Default Tenant Name (OpenStack setting in Workload Manager). Both the Default Tenant ID and Default Tenant Name fields are optional in the Workload Manager UI. See Add an OpenStack Cloud Account.

Key Pair Settings

Workload Manager users can select keys defined in OpenStack when launching deployments. The SSH key pairs are displayed in the Workload Manager UI based on properties that Workload Manager retrieves from the cloud.

To view a list of keys, View Cloud Properties API.

Submitting Jobs

The OpenStack Cloud Tenant selector (visible for supported cloud families) displays the list of tenants obtained via the OpenStack identity management service (not tied to any tier).

The OpenStack CloudTenant is a universal property for the selected cloud/deployment environment (not attached to any tier).
