Unsupported Heat Templates¶
Unsupported templates are experimental and should be used AT YOUR OWN RISK.
These templates may be under development by F5 or may have been contributed by other users (non-F5-employees).
F5 will not support templates that are in the unsupported state, regardless of a customer’s support contract status.
f5_plugins templates use F5 iApps and Heat templates in tandem to deploy BIG-IP resources in OpenStack.
If you’re just starting out with OpenStack Heat, you can use the Learning Stacks template(s) to get an idea of how a Heat stack manages resources.
ve templates prepare BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) images for use and launch VE instances in OpenStack.
These templates are primarily used by other Heat templates to compose customized stacks.
Each of the BIG-IP VE Standalone templates deploys a single VE instance; only the number of data interfaces differs.
