Stack resource filtering, sorting and pagination¶
Enhance the filtering, sorting and filtering ability for resources in a given stack.
In larger stack, heat does allow 1000 (max_resources_per_stack) by default which is configurable, and it would help users to get the resources in a stack if its provided with pagination, sorting and filtering abilities based on certain resource attributes
Add Following parameters in REST API and heat CLI for enabling pagination for given stack resources:
marker: Starting Resource id (default=0)
limit: Number of records from starting index (default=20)
with_count: If True (default), then provide following counts in response: - count: Total number of resources in a given stack like defined in https://github.com/openstack/api-wg/blob/master/guidelines/counting.rst
Add Following parameters in REST API and heat CLI for sorting resources in a given stack:
sort: List of resource attributes in given priority sequence. - Allowed attributes : created_at, updated_at, status, name - Default key is created_at - Default sorting direction is desc for created_at, updated_at and asc for status, name. - sort key value format to be aligned with API-WG http://git.openstack.org/cgit/openstack/api-wg/tree/guidelines/pagination_filter_sort.rst
- Add Following parameters in REST API and heat CLI for filtering resources in
a given stack:
type: List of valid Resource type
status: List of valid resource statuses
name: Resource name
action: List of valid resource actions
uuid: List of resource uuid
physical_resource_id: List of physical resource id
To support NOT condition, each of the list entry could be in the form of ‘[not:]entry’ like ‘not:FAILED’
Affected Resource REST API:
Here, to provide the filtering parameters, ‘filter’ query parameter will be used with it’s value similarly to –filters option used in CLI.
Affected Heat CLI:
(only shown the new parameters here)
heat resource-list [-f <KEY1=VALUE1;KEY2=VALUE2...>]
[-l <LIMIT>] [-m <ID>] [-s <KEY1:asc,KEY2,KEY3>]
- Optional arguments:
-f <KEY1=VALUE1;KEY2=VALUE2…>, –filters <KEY1=VALUE1;KEY2=VALUE2…> Filter parameters to apply on returned resources. This can be specified multiple times, or once with parameters separated by a semicolon.
-l <LIMIT>, –limit <LIMIT> Limit the number of resources returned. -m <ID>, –marker <ID> Only return resources that appear after the given resource ID.
-s <KEY1:asc,KEY2,KEY3>, –sort <KEY1:asc,KEY2,KEY3> Sorting keys in the given precedence and sorting directions.

- Target Milestone for completion:
Update Resource REST API controller with additional capabilities for pagination, sorting and filtering
Update the heat CLI as described in the solution section
Add required RPC and DB api with required micro version.
Add required additional test cases.
Add documentation for CLI (python-heatclient), REST API (api-sites)
