I've was recently told that v3 is not well supported within the OpenStack community and that it is not supported within the OpenStack services. It seems some of the OpenStack services did not work well with KeyStone’s v3 api’s.

I've noticed that the keystone python clients use v2. Why is this? Is there something wrong with v3, and why has v3 not been widely adopted? Why has V2 not been sunseted? Why do both v2 and v3 exist?

Until all of the projects support the v3 api, you cant sunset v2. If I recall there are a few core projects that don't yet support v3 domains.

The python clients support v3 if you tell it to use the v3 api (it doesn't default there).

Do you know which core projects don't support the v3 domain yet? How do you tell the python client to use the v3 api? Do you know when v2 will be sunsetted? I was unable to find an exact date for a deprecation of v2.

You can find more information about v3 api here. I don't know which ones don't support it, but according to this page it should support it if it uses the python lib. Though the project would have to be aware of domains still.
