I need to create a lot a flavors, let's say 10 flavors. The name is following a very specific pattern, let's say flav_101, flav_102, flav_201 etc. So I'm trying to use the OS::Heat::ResourceGroup type. With this type, there is the index_var property which by default equal to %index% and can be customized. My question is how to customize this variable in order to get my list of flavors?

Thank you so much for your help!

Are you saying you want to use index substitution, but also customise which indices are used (so you get 101, 102, 201, ... instead of 0, 1, 2, ...)?

yes Exactly! instead of 0,1,2, I need to get 101, 102, 201 etc!

You can't choose custom indices. ResourceGroup exists solely for the edification of people obsessed with contiguous indices.

I'd suggest you just write your own client-side template generator. It couldn't be more than 10 lines of code.
