Openstack Manuals

This repository contains the cloud administrator documentation for the OpenStack project. It includes documentation for:

  • OpenStack Compute
  • OpenStack Identity Service
  • OpenStack Image Service
  • OpenStack Object Storage
  • OpenStack Dashboard
  • OpenStack Network Connectivity

For more details, see the OpenStack Documentation HowTo wiki page.

In addtion to the guides, this repository contains:

  • api.openstack.org: doc/src/docbkx/openstack-api-site
  • docs.openstack.org: www

Prerequisites

Apache Maven must be installed to build the documentation.

To install Maven for Ubuntu:

apt-get install maven3

Building

To build the Compute Admin Manual, Object Storage Admin Manual, and Image Service Manual:

cd openstack-manuals/doc
mvn clean generate-sources

The different manuals are in subdirectories of the openstack-manuals/doc/src/docbkx directory.

For example, the root directory of the OpenStack Compute Administration Guide is openstack-manuals/doc/src/docbkx/openstack-compute-admin.

To build a specific guide, look for a pom.xml file within a subdirectory, then run the mvn command in that directory. For example:

cd openstack-manuals/doc/src/docbkx/openstack-compute-admin
mvn clean generate-sources

The generated PDF documentation file is:

openstack-manuals/doc/src/docbkx/openstack-compute-admin/target/docbkx/webhelp/trunk/openstack-compute/admin/os-compute-adminguide-trunk.pdf

The root of the generated HTML documentation is:

openstack-manuals/doc/src/docbkx/openstack-compute-admin/target/docbkx/webhelp/os-compute-adminguide/content/index.html
