Ironic operations

Ironic operations

Ironic is an Administrators only service allowing access to all API requests only to the OpenStack users with the admin or baremetal_admin roles. However, some read-only operations are also available to the users with the baremetal_observer role.

In MCP, Ironic has not been integrated with the OpenStack Dashboard service yet. To manage and use Ironic, perform any required actions either through the Bare Metal service command-line client using the ironic or openstack baremetal commands, from scripts using the ironicclient Python API, or through direct REST API interactions.

Managing and using Ironic include creating suitable images, enrolling bare metal nodes into Ironic and configuring them appropriately, and adding compute flavors that correspond to the available bare metal nodes.
