I installed keystone and It now works good with keystoneclient CLI. But I want to try v3 API and found my openstackclient doesn't work with keystone.

here is my command:

openstack --os-auth-url http://localhost:5000/v3 \

--os-identity-api-version 3 \

--os-auth-type v3password \

--os-project-name demo \

--os-project-domain-id default \

--os-username darren \

--os-user-domain-id default \

--os-password keystonepass

here is the traceback:

"user list" is just an example and I can't do anything with v3 API. The trick is I can do everything with keystoneclient using v2 API, if you need more configuration details, just let me know.

what did the openstack --debug ... say when you run the user list command against keystone v3? and could you paste your /etc/keystone.conf to

Can you try the following?

1) Get the token. V2 is also fine.

2) Do curl -i -H "X-Auth-Token: http://localhost:5000/v3/users

hi, @Haneef Ali, I think I get the problem, It's the policy.json file! I'm using the v3 version policy file, It seems work when I changed some rules. Thanks anyway. By the way, do you know how to differentiate between v2password, v2token, token, password, v3token, v3password, and so on...

thx, @9lives. The traceback said that I was not authorized to do that job. Now it's working after changing some rules. By the way, do you know what does "admin_domain_id" mean in rule "cloud_admin": "... and domain_id:admin_domain_id" in v3 policy.json? Or how can I set up an admin domain?

The error message is misleading. It should have been 401 and not 404. Default v3 policy file will work only if you use domain scoped tokens. If you are testing openstack client, just use policy.json and not v3 policy file as you need to change many more things to make it work with v3 policy

Finally I fixed this problem. First make sure that database connection is correct, second if you need to use v3password as auth_type, this could be an example.

openstack \

--os-auth-type v3password --os-identity-api-version 3 \

--os-username admin --os-user-domain-id default \

--os-password PASSWORD \ #(optional)

--os-project-name admin --os-project-domain-id default \

--os-auth-url http://controller:35357/v3 COMMAND

Finally, if you are not authorized to fulfill some operation, please check the policy.json file.

I don't remember the stock Keystone Client having v3 support. You'll either need to use the API reference and use Curl, or try:

Nope, keystoneclient doesn't have v3 CLI, so I'm using openstackclient as a CLI tool. But the fact is there are too many auth-types (v2token, v2password, ...) and I'm really confused how to use it.
