This repository contains the cloud administrator documentation for the OpenStack project. It includes documentation for OpenStack Compute, OpenStack Identity Service, OpenStack Image Service, and OpenStack Object Storage as well as the Dashboard.

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


Apache Maven must be installed to build the documentation.


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:
