HPE Storage Plug-in for Horizon

Project Description

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Storage Dashboard

  • Free software: Apache license


This plug-in extends the OpenStack Horizon Dashboard.

It adds an “HPE Storage” panel to the Admin dashboard. When this panel is selected, the associated window will have tabs to manage/view HPE Storage related data. One of these tabs will be labeled “3PAR SSMC Links”, which will allow an admin user to associate an HPE 3PAR SSMC instance with an OpenStack storage backend (as defined by /etc/cinder/cinder.conf).


The OpenStack Barbican service is required for this plug-in. (see

The HPE Storage Diagnostic Tool must be installed to enable the “Cinder Diagnostics” features of this plug-in. (see

This plug-in is only intended for use on systems running Horizon.

Installation instructions

In a Devstack environment, add the following to your Devstack local.conf file:

enable-plugin barbican
enable_plugin horizon-hpe-storage-ui

Or, to add to an existing Horizon virtual environment:

cd horizon
cd ..
# create new package directory at same root path as Horizon
git clone
# install package
cd horizon-hpe-storage-ui
../horizon/tools/ pip install --upgrade .
# copy configuration file so that Horizon loads the plug-in
cp -a horizon_hpe_storage/enabled/* ../horizon/openstack_dashboard/local/enabled

# re-start Horizon. One way is to start a test server -
cd ../horizon
./ --runserver

After reloading the Horizon dashboard in your browser, log-in as an “Admin” user. If the plug-in was successfully loaded, you should see a new “HPE Storage” panel listed at the bottom of the “Admin” section.

Uninstalling the plug-in

Uninstall the python package and remove the config files:

sudo pip uninstall horizon-hpe-storage-ui
rm horizon/openstack_dashboard/local/enabled/_999_hpe_storage_admin_panel.*
