Add User Guide per installer - APEX
Trying to install the dovetail project on APEX, some instructions have been found that are not clear enough. The aim of introduction of new folder and user guide documents for each installer is to make a dovetail deployment easier, using tips and advices that are applicable for each installer respectively.

+Overview
+------------------------------
+The purpose of this document is to give tips for the dovetail deployment
+on APEX installer.
+The general structure of the document is remaining according to the user guide
+document and the APEX related tips will be added under of the respective
+chapter's name.

+Checking the Test Host Readiness
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+
+Installing Prerequisite Packages on the Test Host
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+
+Configuring the Test Host Environment
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+In order to run the test scenarios properly and having access to all OS components
+that each scenario needs, the undercloud credentials should be used and copied in the
+docker container along with ssh key.
+
+The environment preparation should be applied on the Test Host environment.
+Therefore, the containers which are going to be used as part of this configuration,
+fetch the information, the files and the rest input from Test Host environment directly
+as part of the Docker command.
+
+Setting up Primary Configuration File
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+Two new environment variables could be introduced in the ``env_config.sh`` file.
+
+
+.. code-block:: bash
+
+ # Set the name of the installer type as environment variable (e.g. apex, fuel, etc)
+ # Optional parameter
+ export INSTALLER_TYPE=xxxx
+
+ # Set the deployed scenario name (e.g. os-sdn-nofeature-noha)
+ # Optional parameter
+ export DEPLOY_SCENARIO=xxxx
+
+For the OS_PASSWORD, OpenStack password from undercloud environment should be used.
