This bug did not make the OSP 8.0 release.  It is being deferred to OSP 10.
Comment 5 Alex Schultz 2017-02-06 18:58:15 EST
As of 10, we support the ability to deploy with swap. (Was fixed in Bug 1415103)

1. Prepare for swap.yaml.
$ cat swap.yaml
  OS::TripleO::AllNodesExtraConfig: extraconfig/all_nodes/swap.yaml
  swap_size_megabytes: '2048'
  swap_path: '/swap'

2. Deploy with the swap.yaml.
openstack overcloud deploy -e swap.yaml

Additionally, we will be providing a basic out of the box environment file for either swap files or swap partitions in openstack-tripleo-heat-templates such that a user can just add '-e /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/enable-swap.yaml' or '-e /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/enable-swap-partition.yaml'
