Mistral dashboard

Mistral Dashboard

Horizon plugin for Mistral.

Setup Instructions
This instruction assumes that Horizon is already installed and it's installation
folder is <horizon>. Detailed information on how to install Horizon can be
found at

The installation folder of Mistral Dashboard will be referred to as <mistral-dashboard>.

The following should get you started::

Clone the repository into your local OpenStack directory:

$ git clone

Install mistral-dashboard

$ sudo pip install -e <mistral-dashboard>

Or if you're planning to run Horizon server in a virtual environment (see below):

$ tox -evenv -- pip install -e ../mistral-dashboard/

and then

$ cp -b <mistral-dashboard>/ <horizon>/openstack_dashboard/local/enabled/

Since Mistral only supports Identity v3, you must ensure that the dashboard
points the proper OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_URL in <horizon>/openstack_dashboard/local/ file::

"identity": 3,


Also, make sure you have changed OPENSTACK_HOST to point to your Keystone
server and check all endpoints are accessible. You may want to change
OPENSTACK_ENDPOINT_TYPE to "publicURL" if some of them are not.

When you're ready, you would need to either restart your apache::

$ sudo service apache2 restart

or run the development server (in case you have decided to use local horizon)::

$ cd ../horizon/
$ tox -evenv -- python runserver

Debug Instructions

Set PyCharm debug settings:

1. Enter debug configurations menu
2. Create a new Django Server configuration
3. Enter some port so it won't run on the default (for example - port: 4000)
4. On the same window click on Environment variables
a. Make sure you have PYTHONUNBUFFERED set as 1
b. Create a new pair - DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE : openstack_dashboard.settings

You should now be able to debug and run the project using PyCharm.
