Chapter 1. Introduction

This version of the workflow guide validates components that implement the OpenStack APIs for networking, block storage, and file share services with Red Hat OpenStack Platform.

In addition, the certification workflow guide certifies applications that rely on OpenStack services or APIs and facilitate an OpenStack deployment. It complements the Cloud Infrastructure with additional functionalities such as configuration, scaling and management.

Before starting the certification process, we recommend that you read the Red Hat OpenStack Certification Policy Guide to understand the requirements and policies for Red Hat OpenStack Certification.


The term "OpenStack deployment-under-test" used in this guide refers to the node where the plugin/application-under-test and Undercloud Director node is installed.
