Bug Description

When deploying a new stack or updating a preexisting deployment, it is
important to avoid using command line clients which are similar in
functionality to prevent unexpected behaviors.

An example of this is using the openstack unified command line client and
the project based command line client. In this case this issue arose when
issuing a deployment command with the openstack unified cli and the

The following will present a behavior where the my_roles_data will persist,
due to the location of the custom roles data, which is within swift.

    * openstack overcloud deploy --templates -r my_roles_data.yaml
    * heat stack-delete overcloud

    Allow the stack to be deleted then continue.

    * openstack overcloud deploy --templates

    The reason for the failure is because the heatclient does not remove the
    custom roles data from swift as it is unaware.

    The correct course of action should be as followed:

    * openstack overcloud deploy --templates -r my_roles_data.yaml
    * openstack overcloud delete <stack name>

    Allow the stack to be deleted then continue.

    * openstack overcloud deploy --templates
