Hi all,

In heat, how to enable the instance in the instance group to use block device?

Here is my template:


type: AWS::AutoScaling::LaunchConfiguration


  ImageId: { get_param: image }

  InstanceType: { get_param: flavor }

  KeyName: { get_param: key_name }

  BlockDeviceMappings: [ {
                         DeviceName : /dev/sdk,
                         Ebs : {VolumeSize : 2}


type: OS::Heat::InstanceGroup


  LaunchConfigurationName:  {Ref: host_pm}

  Size: {get_param: pm_num}

  AvailabilityZones: []

The heat-api report an error: Property BlockDeviceMappings not implemented yet

Is there any way to enable the instance of instance gourp to use block device automatically?

Best Regards,

This may only be possible if you move to the OS::Heat::AutoScalingGroup resource so you can specify you're scaled stack with a OS::Nova::Server resource. See the following example templates:

Note the above assumes you're running Icehouse Heat or newer.
