I have used on /etc/openstack-dashboard/keystone_policy.json and /etc/keystone/policy.json and use 'default' for admin_domain_id. I still cannot show domain administration panel on Horizon even I have logged in as admin (from previously single domain installation). What have I missed?

Best regards,

All these linked guides miss one vital step. You have to give your admin user the admin role in the default domain.

openstack role add --domain default --user admin admin

These are the only options needed in Horizon's


No changes to any policy files are necessary.

The policy doesn’t configure Horizon pages and menus. It just tweaks roles and policy rules so that domain administrators can be defined.

Check the Horizon documentationfor enabling domain support in the GUI. You will also find help on the internet, e.g. (I haven’t tried it).

Hi Bernd,

It's still not working even I have toggled domains_panel to be True on ANGULAR_FEATURES stanza.I still cannot see domain management related view. Any working step by step example I can refer for this?

Sorry, I don’t know this better than you. IBM has step by step instructions, too.

Hi Bernd,

Suddenly, I have solved this problem. I don't know how but I just open related stanza on local_settings even one with default content. Maybe there is some default which os different with the assumption.
