You can add pre-create and pre-delete hooks on resources. These are specified in the resource_registry section of an environment file, like so:

      hooks: pre-delete
      hooks: [pre-create, pre-delete]

Wildcards in resource names are allowed.

When Heat reaches the resource to create/delete it, it will pause until you use the openstack stack hook clear command to prompt Heat to continue (or until the stack times out). You can determine when Heat is paused at a hook using the openstack stack hook poll command, or configure notifications on a Zaqar queue.

Thanks, this is the case when Heat reach the resource could I use it but in the case when an alarm is triggered?

I'm not sure I understand the question. There's no hook like "pre-signal" that you could trigger on. But you can set pre-create/pre-delete hooks e.g. on all the members (using a wildcard) of the nested stack for an autoscaling group.

when I use hooks for an autoscaling group I can't create stack untill I use openstack stack hook clear command and after I use it I can't create a hook an other time :/

It sounds like you are adding a hook on the autoscaling group resource itself, instead of on its individual members.
