I tried to launch a stack with heat, like this:

heat stack-create teststac -u ( -P "DBUsername=wp;DBPassword=verybadpassword;KeyName=heat_key;LinuxDistribution=F17"

ERROR: Property error : WikiDatabase: ImageId "F17-x86_64-cfntools" does not validate glance.image

But when I saw the images, it seemed to be OK:

glance image-list +--------------------------------------+---------------------+-------------+------------------+-----------+----------------------------+ | ID | Name | Disk Format | Container Format | Size | Status | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+-------------+------------------+-----------+----------------------------+ | e8a3f8a7-1a5e-49b1-a5fa-3a7a7dd10894 | F17-x86_64-cfntools | qcow2 | bare | 476704768 | active | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+-------------+------------------+-----------+-----------------------------+

I tried to change F17-x86_64-cfntools for the ID e8a3f8a7-1a5e-49b1-a5fa-3a7a7dd10894 in the template, but the error persists.

I'm using Devstack, and I follow this doc: (

Any idea?

Can you please do a git pull on the heat repository, then restart devstack and confirm whether you still have this issue?

I built my Openstack today using latest git repo. I am still getting the same error while creating a HEAT STack.
