Hi, i'm looking for a solution which can perfom "Automation" inside a enterprise environment, with several device (Cisco, Checkpoint, Big-IP,Big-IQ,Fortinet). All of this, are ready to use restuful api. I think about openstack orchestrator, but i'm not sure that openstack orchestrator is the right solution. Is it able to comunicate with other system/plattaform, in restful api and then orchestrate them? Or orchestration module is only for create and manage cloud resources.

The idea is something like ansible...

Thanks everyone

I think you cant use heat to manage external device of OpenStack management. With Heat you can create and manage resources inside OpenStack, not underlay hardware. I'll suggest you to use an external orchestration tool as ansible or puppet. Regards
