Dashboard (Horizon)

Horizon is the graphical user interface for Pan-Net tenants. It is the implementation of OpenStack's dashboard, which provides a web-based interface to various OpenStack projects and services. Its modular architecture is based on Django and allows creating new dashboards by reusing its components. The design principles include out-of-the-box support for all core OpenStack projects, being extensible, easily manageable and stable.

For an introduction to Horizon, please see https://pannet.atlassian.net/l/c/og3uQiiR

The Horizon menu items correspond to a subset of openstack commands. The use and format of command arguments are described in the How-to Guides for the command-line interface listed in Table 1. Please note that some menu items may require special privileges or may not have been implemented yet.
