We are trying to explore the Heat Orchestration and need really some help out there to put us in the right direction. Here we are using the existing openstack instance details to create the stack.

I am able to create a simple stack using : heat stack-create teststack --template-file=templates/wordpress.template

It is cool and seeing the stack 'teststack' with the status as 'COMPLETE' in the output of 'heat --include-password list'

If login to the openstack we are not finding any instances out there. We are totally confused where to find the created stacks.

OpenStack was installed by our network team in our private network. I setup Heat in my local machines by following the reference on https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Heat/GettingStartedUsingMasterOnUbuntu . I installed prerequisites, installed python-heatclient, installed Heat from master. Thats all we have done.

can you please edit your question to clarify how you've installed openstack and how you configured your heat client?

If you followed the instructions on the wiki, you have installed openstack locally on your machine, too, so I suspect that heat created the stack on your local machine.

Note that the `heat` client uses the value of `OS_AUTH_URL` in your environment to figure out to which keystone server it should connect. That keystone server will, in turn, provide it with a list of endpoints including the appropriate Heat service. So you can definitively answer your "where is this deploying stacks?" question by looking at `OS_AUTH_URL`.
