I am a admin user. I have created 3 availability zones : compute1, compute2 & compute3. I want to create a user: user1 so that user1 can only see and access compute1 only. (so that VMs launched by user1 can be on compute1 only).

Is it possible in openstack that an admin user can made available a particular availability zone to a particular user created by admin?

  • currently i am able to see all the availability zones in all the users created by admin.

AZ’s are visible to everybody in principle. Since their purpose is allowing users to spread applications over compute nodes to minimize SPOFs, AZ’s are not the right tool anyway.

You could create a host aggregate, map it to specific flavors and ensure that the project (not user) can only see those flavors.
