OpenContrail ( is a fully featured Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution for private clouds. It supports high performance isolated tenant networks without requiring external hardware support. It provides a Neutron plugin to integrate with OpenStack.

This charm is designed to be used in conjunction with the rest of the OpenStack related charms in the charm store to virtualize the network that Nova Compute instances plug into.

This charm provides the Web UI component which contains the contrail-web-controller service. Only OpenStack Icehouse or newer is supported.


Keystone, Contrail Configuration and Cassandra are prerequisite services to deploy.

Once ready, deploy and relate as follows:

juju deploy contrail-webui
juju add-relation contrail-webui keystone
juju add-relation contrail-webui:contrail_api contrail-configuration:contrail-api
juju add-relation contrail-webui:contrail_discovery contrail-configuration:contrail-discovery
juju add-relation contrail-webui:cassandra cassandra:database

Install Sources

The version of OpenContrail installed when deploying can be changed using the 'install-sources' option. This is a multilined value that may refer to PPAs or Deb repositories.

Secure HTTPS/SSL Connections

HTTPS is enabled by default (port 8143) and also set with:

juju set contrail-webui use-https=true

A self-signed X.509 certificate will be generated for SSL use by default, but you may specify one with the 'ssl-cert' and 'ssl-key' options. This is easier to do using a YAML file:

# config.yaml
  ssl-cert: |
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----
  ssl-key: |
    -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----
    -----END PRIVATE KEY-----

juju set --config config.yaml contrail-webui

High Availability (HA)

juju add-unit contrail-webui

Relating to haproxy charm (website relation) allows multiple units to be load balanced:

juju add-relation contrail-webui haproxy
