As i understand your query- you want to run certain services on the node, like ALL Controller services on controller node and ONLY compute service on compute node, And neutron services on Network node.

Yes, this is very much possible but little complex and you must have good understanding on how foreman works. You will need to define and configure Host groups(different for controller, compute, network etc) and then you need to add the particular Host group while deploying the node, This is will deploy that particular services which you choose.

For example -You can refer here on how Host Groups are configured to achieve this & you will need Quickstack modules

Here are the details of Quickstack Puppet module classes
