I've deployed icehouse release of openstack. I can create roles through command line but on dashboard that option is missing. Documentation at ( says that there is a Roles category on Admin tab but I can't find it.

Any help?

Thanks, Pradeep

The roles page is only available when working with Keystone v3. If you have the v3 API deployed, you can set Horizon to use it by updating the identity version in the OPENSTACK_API_VERSIONS setting, see . The OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_URL should also be updated.

After modifying OPENSTACK_API_VERSIONS & OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_URL, Roles and groups are visible in admin tab. Thanks for the answer!!

Issue I ran into as well with Havana, if you are using more than 8 api endpoints make sure you uncomment the header line length:

max_header_line = 16384

That way you can work with the v3 api and not run into issues with auth due to tokens that are too big.

No, I'm not facing any issues with dashboard now after changing what jpichon suggested. I've 12 endpoints and passwords are like 20 characters long. So all good there...

thanks for you tip. I uncommented OPENSTACK_API_VERSIONS = { "data_processing": 1.1, "identity": 3, "volume": 2 }

and set OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_URL = "http://%s:5000/v3.0" from v2.0 now i can see the role page.
