[openstack-dev] Add TOSCA assets to the catalog

Our schema file is located here:

We don't have a schema type defined for TOSCA assets yet. We should discuss the sorts of things that need to be listed so that the asset can be loaded into an OpenStack instance. For example, glance needs architecture, minimum requirements, container type information, etc in addition to the file. When the horizon plugin installs/runs it, we need to pass all the information along. Also, it would be helpful to discuss the mechanism for launching the assets if there is such a thing.

I *believe* it's referring to the metadata for the asset type, if you look in the schema here:


...you will find definitions for heat, glance, and murano assets indicating required properties etc.
