Hi, I want to use a Heat template that uses composition. All the files are in the same directory. When I try to create in command line, I get the following error:

# heat  stack-create ADDC_stack -f heat_addc.yaml 
ERROR: Could not fetch remote template 'network_addc.yaml': Invalid URL scheme

Here is a snippet from the file heat_addc.yaml that calls network_addc.yaml:


    type: network_addc.yaml
      public_network: { get_param: public_network }

I have tried to specify the type as:

type: file:///tmp/ADDC/network_addc.yaml

But I get the same error:

ERROR: Could not fetch remote template 'file:///tmp/ADDC/network_addc.yaml': Invalid URL scheme file

The version of Heat is 0.2.8

I uploaded the yaml files to a webserver, and in type I used http://server/network_addc.yaml and the error dissappeared. For some reason the local file is not working.

This is more to do with your python-heatclient version, I'd try making sure that is uptodate. (mine is 0.6.0)

I'm using python-heatclient version 0.8.0 and this is not working.
