I'm trying to set up the Orchestration for openstack but I ran across something in the guide that was confusing. This is the guide here: http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/insta...

Step number 3 Creating Identity service endpoints confuses me. What is 'controller' and what is 'tenant_id'?

  • controller is the server that has the service endpoints
  • tenant_id is part of the service URL, and you don't need to change it

For further information about 'controller', I recommend reading from the start of the guide.

In addition - please note that you have linked to the 'trunk' documentation, which is currently for the Juno release under development. It may not work at all. If you wish to use the current stable release, replace 'trunk' for 'icehouse' in your link.

Well my goal is to simply just use heat. Will installing devstack automatically do all of this for me?
