My understanding is that Heat is an independent service that can be added on top of existing OpenStack installation. If it is correct, I would like to know if any version requirement between Heat and OpenStack. In particular, I have a Folsom version of OpenStack installed. I would like to know if Heat is able to work with that Folsom or not. Any suggestion is appreciated.

Heat has grown some capabilities in Havana and Icehouse that rely on more recent Keystone features. Without these capabilities, Heat cannot be used by users that are not administrators for many things.

That being said, it should work for starting instances, creating volumes, and attaching floating ips.

Actually, we have successfully configured Heat to use the core service from Folsom by using this plugin https://github.com/openstack/heat/tree/master/contrib/heat_keystoneclient_v2 (https://github.com/openstack/heat/tre...) .
