Adding custom databases and database users in TripleO

by Juan Antonio Osorio Robles

For folks integrating with TripleO, it has been quite painful to always need to modify puppet in order to integrate with the engine. This has been typically the case for things like adding a HAProxy andpoint and adding a database and a database user (and grants). As mentioned in a previous post, this is no longer the case for HAProxy endpoints, and this ability has been in TripleO for a a couple of releases now.

With the same logic in mind, I added this same functionality for mysql databases and database users. And this relecently landed in Stein. So, all you need to do is add something like this to your service template:

          password: 'myPassword'
          dbname: 'mydatabase'
          user: 'myuser'
          host: {get_param: [EndpointMap, MysqlInternal, host_nobrackets]}
            - '%'
            - "%{hiera('mysql_bind_host')}"

This will create:

Now you don’t need to modify puppet to add a new service to TripleO!
