Hi TripleO devs,

The patches ([1], [2], [3], [4]) implementing the deployment plan
import/export feature have been up for review for some time. (The
corresponding spec is at [5].) In this email, I'd like to explain how to
review this feature.

Patch [1] adds the import functionality to the create and update plan
actions in tripleo-common. Make sure your copy of the
tripleo-heat-templates includes the plan-environment.yaml[6] file. On your
undercloud, clone a local copy of the tripleo-common repo [7] and
cherry-pick the patch [1] on top of it. Then run the steps outlined at [8]
in order to install the newly cloned copy of tripleo-common. This will make
the updated actions available to Mistral. Then you can use the plan create
and plan update commands, then make sure that the contents of the
plan-environment.yaml file get correctly imported into the Mistral
environment. E.g:

  $ openstack overcloud plan create --templates
/usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/ new_plan
  $ mistral environment-get new_plan

And similarly for plan update.

Patch [2] adds an action and a workflow for exporting deployment plans and
patch [3] adds a CLI command that triggers the workflow. You can test these
two patches together, or if you want to test only [2] you can manually
execute the Mistral workflow. For patch [2] the same instructions from
above regarding installing a new copy of tripleo-common apply. You will
also need to manually update the plan management workbook:

  $ mistral workbook-update tripleo-common/workbooks/plan_management.yaml

Please note that patch [2] depends on patch [1] - you'll need both of them
applied on your local copy of tripleo-common. As far as
python-tripleoclient goes, it is enough to simply clone a fresh copy to
your undercloud, apply patch [3] and run `python setup.py install`. This
will make the new plan export command available to you:

  $ openstack overcloud plan export new_plan

If all goes well, that should create a plan export tarball
(new_plan.tar.gz) in the directory you ran the command from. You should
check that the tarball contains all the relevant plan files, as well as the
plan-environment.yaml file whose contents should be imported from the
Mistral environment.

Finally, patch [4] integrates the plan export functionality into the
TripleO UI. You will need [1] and [2] applied on your undercloud. Then you
can cherry pick [4] on top of your tripleo-ui checkout. Access the UI,
navigate to Select Deployment -> Manage Deployments. Next to every plan,
there should now be a new Export button which you can use to test the plan
export functionality.

Hope all of this makes sense - if it does not, or you have any other
questions regarding this feature, please feel free to respond here or ping
me on IRC.

Thanks for your patience and I'll look forward to the reviews!
