Heat deals with resources that are managed by OpenStack, for example Nova servers or Neutron networks, not with the configuration of the cloud hosts. To configure your hosts automatically, use a tool like Ansible.

If the hosts are managed by OpenStack (e.g. undercloud), perhaps a security group or even Neutron FWaaS is the right solution?

Security groups are sets of IP filter rules that are applied to all project instances, which define networking access to the instance.

The Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) plug-in applies firewalls to OpenStack objects such as projects

Again: Heat controls OpenStack resources. You can’t use it to control the infrastructure on which your cloud runs.

Why don’t you use iptables to open the ports?
