A tool for quick creation and deployment of Openstack machines used for QA testing.

Project description

Give me an instance of mine image on OpenStack. Hurry!


To run 5minute you need to install following libs:


To install them from RPMs (Fedora), please do dnf -y install $( cat requirement-rpms.txt ).

If you have installed 5minute using pip, they were installed as dependencies. Otherwise, you have to install them manually.

Get config file:

  1. Login into your OpenStack instance WebUI
  2. Navigate to Access & Security -> API Access
  3. Save file from “Download OpenStack RC File” to ~/.5minute/config

Get started:

Show help:

$ 5minute help

Upload your SSH public key:

$ 5minute key ~/.ssh/

Show images we can work with:

$ 5minute images

Boot your machine (consider adding ‘–name’ or ‘–flavor’ to the command):

$ 5minute boot <image_name_or_id>

When the boot is finished, you should be able to ssh to your new machine

$ ssh root@<machine_ip_address>

You can list your current machines:

$ 5minute list

When you are done, kill the machine (you can do this via OpenStack webUI as well):

$ 5minute delete <machine_name_or_id>

To list available OpenStack scenarios:

$ 5minute scenario templates

Run scenario:

$ 5minute scenario boot <scenario_template_name>

When finished with the scenario, you should delete it:

$ 5minute scenario delete <scenario_name_or_id>
