Exactly which image did you download and launch? If you choose the SLES12SP3-JeOS, you are asked to set a root password since there are no other users defined. If you choose openSUSE, there's a note in the docs you mentioned:

In a openSUSE cloud image, the login account is opensuse.

If you launch ../images/openSUSE-Leap-42.3-OpenStack.x86_64.qcow2 you should either provide a keypair via openstack or expand your user-data to create a new user with your desired password. I was able to login password-less via ssh as user "opensuse", sudo -i also works for further configuration.

@ebblock i am using sles12.3 jeos from http://suse.com, when i used cloud-config, it cannot set password for root.

I believe that is because the image is not fully configured after first boot. I would suggest to launch that instance, set root password during first boot (you're prompted) and then take a snapshot for glance of the running instance. After that, try launching a new instance with cloud-config.
