Have you scripted around making instances expire? Or for the residual clean-up needed to be done when a tenant is deleted? If so, this session is for you. In this presentation, aimed at OpenStack operators,we will discuss a new feature beingproposed for Mistral that would allow operators the ability to develop workflows which will run automatically in response to specific OpenStack evens. First, we will present a brief overview of Mistral and its capabilities. Next, we'll discuss the implementation of this new feature and how to write workflows that can use it. As a concrete example, we will show how we added an expiration policy to server instances by running workflows in response to a server create notification. Finally, we will discuss how this feature can be used to address the age old problem of cleaning up resources when a project (tenant) is deleted.
You will leave with an understanding on how you could then write your own custom workflows in response to OpenStack notifications.
