Fixed In Version: openstack-heat-2015.1.2-3.el7ost
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Heat did not ignore a "Not Found" exception when trying to fetch a stack user; that is, a Keystone user created to allow servers deployed in the stack to authenticate back to Heat. As a consequence, if the stack user was deleted for any reason, Heat was unable to delete the associated stack. With this update, Heat catches the "Not Found" exception in this case. As a result, stacks can still be deleted even if their associated stack user is already missing.

Description Steven Hardy 2015-11-27 06:22:11 EST
Description of problem:
It's not clear exactly how we get in this state, but it's possible for the delete path to encounter resources with associated users, where those users don't exist (perhaps after re-trying a previously failed delete).

How reproducible:
If you do an out of band deletion of the user, always, otherwise it seems to happen inconsistently.

Reported in openstack-heat-engine-5.0.0-1.el7ost.noarch

Steps to Reproduce:
See reproducer in linked upstream bug

Actual results:
The stack can be DELETE_FAILED, permanently.

Expected results:
A stack should never be persistently impossible to delete

Ack'ed. Moving to OSP8 GA.
Comment 4 Michele Baldessari 2015-12-02 15:19:11 EST
FWIW I had again the DELETE_FAILED issue and the gerrit patch fixed it for me
Comment 5 Jaromir Coufal 2015-12-03 08:55:25 EST
We can manage to squeeze it in z3. Moving the target.
Comment 8 Zane Bitter 2015-12-03 16:33:18 EST
Still not sure of the trigger, but bug 1285495 may be related.
Comment 9 Amit Ugol 2015-12-09 08:53:30 EST
AFAIT I was always able to delete a stack in failed state in the latest versions.
I think that this issue can be ignored now because there was no way to reproduce it and I can't as well. If there is a more specific issue that we can track, please open a new bug.
