We have instructions for developing a plugin here:


The short description is to subclass one of the base drivers (e.g. keystone.resource.backends.base.ResourceDriverBase) and to create a setuptools entrypoint for it, which you can then use to configure the driver option in keystone.conf.

The driver interface is subject to change from release to release so be sure to read the release notes and update your driver implementation.
