Installation Instructions

Please note that the following instructions assume that you have an existing installation of the OpenStack Horizon dashboard application. For Horizon installation please see

  1. Clone the Ironic UI repository:

    git clone
  2. Change into the root directory of your horizon installation and activate the python virtual environment. Example:

    source .venv/bin/activate


    The .venv folder is preinstalled when horizon is setup with ./ Do not attempt to reinstall the virtual environment.

  3. Copy the file from ironic_ui/enabled/ file to horizon/openstack_dashboard/local/enabled directory. Example, set as if being executed from the root of the ironic-ui repository:

    cp ./ironic_ui/enabled/ ../horizon/horizon/openstack_dashboard/local/enabled
  4. Change into the ironic-ui repository and package the plugin:

    pip install -e .

    This will build and install the ironic-ui plugin into the active virtual environment associated with your horizon installation. The plugin is installed in “editable” mode as a link back to your ironic-ui plugin directory.

    Also ensure that all packages as per requirements.txt have been installed.

  5. Change back into the horizon repository and bring up your environment:

    ./ --runserver

    The Ironic Bare Metal Provisioning plugin should now be visible in the Horizon navigation.


To uninstall, use pip uninstall ironic-ui from with-in the horizon virtual environment. You will also need to remove the openstack_dashboard/enabled/ file from the horizon installation.
