For developing the custom heat_resource, we need to specify the plugin_dirs the /etc/heat/heat.conf file as follows:


Is there a way the same can be mentioned in the local.conf also? (e.g follows):


In both the cases, typically I need to just restart the heat-engine service. Am I right?

Yes, you should be able to specify it in any of the configuration files allowed by oslo.config - /etc/heat/heat.conf is the default, but your distribution may add others and you can specify more on the heat-engine command line or in the environment. You're correct that restarting Heat engine should be enough to pick up the new configuration and (re)load the appropriate plugins.
