ok turns out it was keystone related and required the static folder to be manaully created (suspect a rights issue with the user wwwrun not having rights to the location to create the static folder)

Thank you for your help guys. more questions to come in the near future

You need to provide more information about your setup: - what operating system you are running and what version of Openstack is installed - where did you install from: distro packages or source - what installation instructions did you follow - any other symptoms, errors, etc

Check the file permission. In /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/static/dashboard check the json file permission. File permission should be 644.
