The links below will take to the relevant instructions paragraph on this page.
Add Your OpenStack Credentials
Why Does Scalr Need Credentials?
Cloud Credentials are needed by Scalr to manage your cloud infrastructure on your behalf. You can obtain the Cloud Credentials required by Scalr through your Cloud Services Provider.
Scalr needs access to your OpenStack Cloud, so you'll need to provide Cloud Credentials. You'll have to provide your existing credentials, or create a new tenant for Scalr-managed infrastructure.
For a detailed walkthrough on how to do so, read this page: Adding OpenStack Credentials - Walkthrough.
Create Roles for OpenStack
Network and firewall configuration
Before you start, ensure that your network and firewall configurations are correct and correspond to the information found on this page: OpenStack Configuration.
Scalr needs to be aware of OpenStack Images before you can launch Servers (Instances) on OpenStack. Those Images must also have Scalr's "Scalarizr" agent installed on them. To do so, you'll have to add Roles to Scalr, and associate OpenStack Images with them.
You might want to repeat this process multiple times to create multiple Scalr Roles. For example, you could create one Role for each Built-in Role Automation that Scalr supports.
