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

The f5_plugins templates use F5 iApps and Heat templates in tandem to deploy BIG-IP resources in OpenStack.

Learning stacks

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.


The ve templates prepare BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) images for use and launch VE instances in OpenStack.
