Before registering your OpenStack cloud and adding it to RightScale, you should read these configuration details about our compatibility and support. Check out our OpenStack Reference Architecture page to see details of the architecture we used and tested against.
Note: For Rackspace Private, see Rackspace Private Reference Architecture.

Be sure to select the desired account with which you would like to register your OpenStack cloud. A cloud can only be registered to one RightScale account. Cloud registration requires "admin role" privileges. Once a cloud has been successfully registered it cannot be registered with another RightScale account unless you delete it.
RightScale relies on "keystone service catalog" for discovery of these end points.
In order to ensure proper integration with RightScale, we require that the following OpenStack endpoint URLs be publicly accessible. This means, the publicURL for each of the following services need to have a public IP address.
Please ensure that these publicURL (IP addresses and Port numbers) are accessible to RightScale over the Internet and are properly configured in firewall settings.
See About Firewalls for detailed information on configuring your firewall settings for proper use with OpenStack.
See Upload RightImages to a Private Cloud to get our base images into your OpenStack cloud.
Neutron policy must be changed to allow port creation by non-owners. In /etc/neutron/policy.conf, change '"create_port": "rule:admin_or_network_owner",' to '"create_port": "",'
If you run into any issues during your OpenStack registration process or otherwise, please book a ticket by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
