I have a Heat::ResourceGroup defining a dynamic number of instances. And after instantiation, I need to pass the IPs assigned to each of these instances to another Admin-instance using :

             instance_count  : { get_param: instance_count }
             inst-1_ip   : { "Fn::Select" : [ "0", { get_attr: [instance, inst_private_ip] } ] }
             inst-2_ip   : { "Fn::Select" : [ "1", { get_attr: [instance, inst_private_ip] } ] }
           template: |

However, the problem am facing is can we have a conditional check that if (instance_count > 1), then inst-2_ip is initialized

All prior versions before ‘2015-10-15’ had the constraint that get_attr can only take a number / string attribute. However, since version ‘2015-10-15’, get_attr can print lists / mappings as well.

Hence, by changing the template version and using get_attr to pass the entire list of IPs to the host template, I could further work with shell scripting to extract the individual IPs assigned to each of the instances belonging to the resource group.
