Hello, as far as I can read in the Havana release notes, Horizon should include a kind on panel to launch heat stacks. (

Unfortunately I'm not able to configure it neither to find any sort of documentation about how to enable it.

I already tried to add to put HORIZON_CONFIG = { 'dashboards': ('project', 'admin', 'settings', 'heat' ), ...


INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'heat' )

in my /etc/openstack-dashboard/local_settings configuration file but I can only get an exception: Dashboard with slug "heat" is not registered.

Does anybody know how can I enable it?

I'm working on Havana 2013.2 on Centos 6.4 with RDO.

ciao, Simone

I have not seen a patch for this added functionality. I will be happy to review it if/when it is submitted.

Heat is not a dashboard, it's panels in the existing Project dashboard in the Panel Group "Orchestration" the panel is "Stacks". The only thing needed to enable the panel is the returned in the users service catalog by keystone. If you are not seeing the Stacks panel, most likely the endpoint for heat is not registered with Keystone. In Horizon you can look at the Access and Security panel and look at the API Access tab. I suspect you won't see orchestration. You will need to register the heat endpoint in keystone.

If you are using devstack, instructions can be found at: (

Remove the changes you listed above. That will break horizon.

Thanks David, I've it. I have seen a complete new dashboard in this screencast ( ( ) where it seams that I can also edit my templates and so on. Do you know if this dashboard will be available and when?
