Hello, I try to modify the name "Instances" to "Virtual Machines" in the web page of Openstack. image description

I'm little lost in directories of Openstack I think is easy to do but I don't know where is the code..

I will try tomorrow to edit file /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/local/

I'm sure that will work, but If I use the following tutorial, I say that I've to add the lines:

from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _

import horizon

# Rename "User Settings" to "User Options"
settings = horizon.get_dashboard("settings")
user_panel = settings.get_panel("user") = _("User Options")

The question IS:

===> I supose I have to do that in: horizon/openstack-dashboard/local/

it's exact?

This particular panel name is defined in openstack_dashboard/dashboards/project/instances/ but I would recommend using the following tutorial to modify the name, so that your changes don't get overwritten when you upgrade:

With regard to your edited question, you can do the modification in a new Python file and place it wherever you like. The HORIZON_CONFIG dictionary in your local_settings file needs to be updated with a "customization_module": "my_project.overrides" attribute as indicated in the linked document, where my_project.overrides is the new file you created with your amendments.

Thanks for your help, I will test that, and post the results.
