I had installed OpenStack(havana) with allinone RDO in CentOS 6.4 64bit.

I cannot use heat commands to do anything, but the glance commands is workable.

I Export the env variables in keystonerc_admin When I lunch the command, It shows the following message

#heat list   
ERROR: Authentication failed. Please try again with option --include-password or export HEAT_INCLUDE_PASSWORD=1

Authentication required


and I lunch the command again

I get the following massage

#heat list   
ERROR: Authentication required

Is the root cause is the missing files:

  • /etc/heat/heat-engine.conf
  • /etc/heat/heat-api{,-cfn,-cloudwatch}-paste.ini

there is only the file heat.conf in /etc/heat/

Or there are something needed setting?

check if you have added in your heat.conf


auth_uri = https://xxx:5000/v2.0
auth_host = xxxx
auth_port = 35357
auth_protocol = https
admin_tenant_name = service
admin_user = <user>
admin_password = <pw>
auth_version = v2.0

you should check with heat --debug list

I had found the root cause in my lab. As I executed the command # tail -l /var/log/heat/heat-api-cfn.log I get the following message. unable to access signing_dir /tmp/keystone-signing-heat. I changed the directory's access mode from 700 to 755 and restart the service. Then the problem is solved.
