Might be off topic but maybe someone can help or has a solution

Is there a way to store stack templates in openstack so users can select them from a list in horizon?

Rather than the File URL or Direct Input method now in place.

The end goal would be able to publish the stack to be available to horizon/openstack while maintaining a version history of the templates with the current version being the release.

I have thought about using the URL and an Apache server with some version control to maintain the list but the end user still has to "Know" the link.

Or maybe it's already there and I am missing the boat...

Its not possible to store such that its visible via horizon as say drop down list - however you can store it in swift [object storage] if you have one and make the container as public [ofcourse if you are not storing any passwords / senstive information in your templates]. Then while launching a stack - give the URL of the object [there will be a public URL available for your public container, followed by the path to the object]

Ratz I was hoping with Kilo there might be a possibility. I tested it using your suggestion and it does work but when dealing with deployments that use a file the yaml script fails of course. Any way of working around this?
