BlueCat Adaptive Plugins are scripts that integrate the BlueCat Adaptive DNS platform, DNS Integrity, with third-party IT applications and services, or automate common tasks and workflows. These Adaptive Plugins help optimize existing IT investments, providing instant access and integration of BlueCat into a broader ecosystem of solutions.

The BlueCat OpenStack Train is an Adaptive Plugin that provides network teams the visibility to OpenStack managed networks in BlueCat Address Manager and automates DNS provisioning of new compute instances seamlessly. This package provides the following:

  • Visibility to OpenStack IP spaces: OpenStack Blocks and Networks are automatically synced to BlueCat Address Manager to give network teams complete visibility of their IP space.
  • DNS provisioning: New compute instances created in OpenStack are automatically provisioned with DNS records and deployed on the zone.

This guide describes how to deploy and configure the BlueCat OpenStack Train Plugin on an OpenStack Train Controller node.
