Integration with Mistral

launchpad blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/vitrage/+spec/integration-with-mistral

Support executing Mistral workflows from Vitrage.

Problem description

Vitrage provides insights about the state of the cloud, but is not meant to be a policy engine. In order to take corrective actions, for example, we need to integrate an external engine like Mistral - the OpenStack workflow engine.

Proposed change

It will be possible to define in Vitrage templates that under certain conditions, a Mistral workflow should be executed. This gives the user the power to decide, for example, that different corrective actions should be taken based on the root cause of the problem (as identified by Vitrage).

Note that this blueprint is based on the external-actions blueprint, that handles the more general case.

Examples

- scenario:
   condition: host_down_alarm_on_host
   actions:
    - action:
       action_type: execute_mistral
       properties:
        workflow: wf1
