I am trying to edit the name of a panel within Project dashboard using the file but it isnt working and I need some help. I defined an file under /opt/stack/horizon directory which contains the following:

from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _

import horizon

settings = horizon.get_dashboard('project')
user_panel = settings.get_panel("overview") = _("Overview-Foo")

and also modified the under openstack_dashboard to include the following line: 'customization_module': 'horizon.overrides',

Thank you for your help.

If the path you set in the local settings is 'horizon.overrides', you should place in /opt/stack/horizon/horizon.

Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction. So I made 2 changes and that helped fix the problem: - as you suggested, I moved under /opt/stack/horizon/horizon - I added the customization_module property to instead of under openstack_dashboad. I tried following what was in thislink under the section: Modifying existing dashboard and panels - ( . It says to change the HORIZON_CONFIG in Is this a defect and should I open one? Thanks for your help.

I think the way it's expressed might make sense for Django developers but not necessarily for people who are new to Horizon and not so familiar with Django. Feel free to open a bug at to make the docs clearer. Thank you!

The following changes helped fix the problem: - moved under /opt/stack/horizon/horizon - added the customization_module property to under openstack_dashboard/local/ instead of under openstack_dashboad

Thank you Julie for helping me out with this.
