The glare module is a part of OpenStack, an effort by the OpenStack infrastructure team to provide continuous integration testing and code review for OpenStack and OpenStack community projects not part of the core software. The module its self is used to flexibly configure and manage the glare service for OpenStack.

Module Description

The glare module is a thorough attempt to make Puppet capable of managing the entirety of glare. This includes manifests to provision region specific endpoint and database connections. Types are shipped as part of the glare module to assist in manipulation of configuration files.


What the glare module affects

  • Glare, the glare service for OpenStack.

Installing glare

glare is not currently in Puppet Forge, but is anticipated to be added soon.  Once that happens, you'll be able to install glare with:
puppet module install openstack/glare

Beginning with glare

To utilize the glare module's functionality you will need to declare multiple resources.



glare is a combination of Puppet manifest and ruby code to delivery configuration and extra functionality through types and providers.


  • All the glare types use the CLI tools and so need to be ran on the glare node.
