WARNING: Information on this page is obsolete for releases after Ocata due to changes in manila's devstack plugin. Refer to the documentation here instead: https://github.com/openstack/manila-ui/blob/master/README.rst

To enable manila-ui in devstack, include this in your local.conf

enable_plugin manila-ui https://github.com/openstack/manila-ui

How to run horizon with manila

Kilo - Newton

When you use devstack with the manila_plugin, the manila-ui is automatically installed (unless horizon is disabled).

The manila UI was converted to a horizon plugin in the Kilo release. Follow the installation instructions at https://github.com/openstack/manila-ui/blob/master/README.rst to have horizon support for manila.


If you use Juno version of Manila, then you can use only fork of Horizon with appropriate changes for Manila support.

Get custom horizon

$ git clone -b manila_juno https://github.com/NetApp/horizon.git  # Horizon of Juno version with Manila support. Should be used only with Juno version of manila server and manilaclient of 1.0.1 version - https://github.com/openstack/python-manilaclient/releases/tag/1.0.1


$ cd horizon


$ cp openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py.example openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py

open file openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py

find var "OPENSTACK_HOST" and set here address of host where devstack was installed

save and exit

Be sure, all dependencies are installed

run in horizon's dir

$ sudo python setup.py install

Also, need to install python-manilaclient

$ sudo pip install python-manilaclient==1.0.1

Run horizon

$ sudo python manage.py runserver

it will be available on

to specify all interfaces, use:

$ sudo python manage.py runserver

port can be set to any not used valid port value.
