Description Dan Macpherson 2017-07-11 10:08:38 EDT
Customer use case is as a hosting provider requires control access and permission within the stack in a granular fashion. The way that this is done (presently) is through the use of each component's policy.json file. 
The ability to automate this via puppet or heat template at time of deploy would be a nice feature to have as it would assist in consolidating the post deployment actions that are being done and allow for a structured approach in crafting specialized permissions.
Due to the nature of hosting, this customer would like to have the ability to dictate during the initial data dump into director to add the configuration changes to each components policy.json file. This would allow for the services to be hardened at the time of deployment rather than either being scripted out later or a manual process post deploy.

Requires documentation in Advanced Overcloud Guide on how to set per-service policy. Also the Overclud Parameters guide needs to be refreshd to include these new parameters.

Updating DFG to match the engineering RFE on which this was based.
