I am looking for a way I could make glossary to put a full name of acronym in the beginning of each chapter.

Here is my code sample:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{glossaries}
\makeglossaries

\newacronym{cd}{CD}{compact disk}

\begin{document}

\chapter{A}
\gls{cd} is a...
\chapter{B}
\gls{cd} is a...

\end{document}

It is compiled into:

Chapter 1

A

compact disk (CD) is a ...

Chapter 2

B

CD is a... //<- should be compact disk (CD)

24

Use either \glsreset{cd} before the second \gls{cd} to reset it (there is also \glsresetall) or use \glsfirst{cd} to typeset it like it would be the first use. See the glossaries manual for all the details.

    Yeah, this was easier with the least modifications. I simply added \glsresetall in the beginning of each chapter. – PeyM87 Nov 21 '17 at 15:02

Resetting all glossary entries at chapter starts may be automated by using the titlesec package and appending \glsresetall to the definition of \chapter.

EDIT: See section 9.2 of the titlesec manual on how to emulate the sectioning command definitions of the standard classes.

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{glossaries}
\makeglossaries

\newacronym{cd}{CD}{compact disk}

\usepackage{titlesec}
\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
    {\normalfont\huge\bfseries}{\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}{20pt}{\Huge}[\glsresetall]

\begin{document}

\chapter{A}
\gls{cd} is a...
\chapter{B}
\gls{cd} is a...

\end{document}
