Appendix F. Firefox Server Exceptions for UI Access

Accessing the director’s web UI through Firefox requires certain server identity exceptions to allow OpenStack Platform services. This includes the following service URLs:



OpenStack Identity (keystone)


OpenStack Orchestration (heat)


OpenStack Bare Metal (ironic)


OpenStack Workflow Service (mistral)


OpenStack Object Storage (swift)


OpenStack Messaging Service (zaqar)

Replace <undercloud> with the Public API IP address of your undercloud.

To add an server identity exception for a URL in Firefox:

  1. Navigate to the Preferences.
  2. Navigate to Certificates > View Certificates.
  3. Click on the Servers tab and click Add Exception.
  4. A window appears asking for the URL of the server. Enter a service URL and port from the list above and click Get Certificate.
  5. Click Confirm Security Exception.

Continue adding exceptions for all service URLs.
