I'm using heat SoftwareDeployments on Juno release. I'm searching the best solution to perform the following scenario:

  • create instance with heat
  • perform some initial configuration using SoftwareDeplotment resources (e.g. trigger some python scripts)
  • using SoftwareDeployment to boot instance
  • continue configuration using SoftwareDeployment resource after boot (e.g trigger other python scripts)

Can be above achived with heat? How should look heat templates to allow configuration after boot?


I would like to create heat template with 3 software deployments:

  • first: execute some python script
  • second - waits until first is completed, then perform instance boot
  • third - wait until boot is completed and execute some additional scripts'

All above should be performed in single heat stack-create call.

You can find anything related to Software deployments here.

Here you could find useful templates.


I will simplify your scenario:

  • create an instance and boot it -> simply add that VM as a resource in your heat template
  • perform some initial configurations -> I think this page is what you are searching for
  • call some additional script -> here the link

Yes I know this resources but I didn't find my scenario.
