An admin task workflow service for openstack.
StackTask is a service that sits along Keystone and allows the automation and approval of tasks normally requiring a user with an admin role. StackTask allows defining of such tasks as part of a workflow which can either be entirely automatic, or require admin approval. The goal is to automate business logic, and augment the functionality of Keystone and other OpenStack services without getting in the way of future OpenStack features or duplicating development effort.
Quick Dev Deployment
To quickly deploy the service for testing you can install via pip, setup a default config file, and then run the test Django server.
pip install stacktask
Then running the service will look for a config in either /etc/stacktask/conf.yaml or it will default to conf/conf.yaml from the directory you run the command in.
stacktask runserver <port>
For now you will have to source the default conf from the github repo or the library install location itself, but we hope to add an additional commandline function which will copy and setup a basic default config in /etc/stacktask/conf.yaml.
