We do not support upgrade if this script is changed or if you add/remove attributes to Ceilometer resource types. > 3.

I see to two solutions depending of your use case: * if your new resource types aim to support a not yet handled Openstack resource. You should consider to contribute upstream to update ceilometer-upgrade and gnocchi_resources.yaml * if not, then option 3 is the good way to go.
