are you using the keystone cli and are you scoped as the admin. If you are using the cli can you provide the output for 'env | grep OS'

Always there is errors during installation of keystone here in i want to give some tips to avoid as i have faced this issue many a times initially we use OS_TOKEN OS_URL for authentication purpose and the file /usr/share/keystone/keystone-dist-paste.ini will have admin_token_auth from the [pipeline:public_api], [pipeline:admin_api], and [pipeline:api_v3] sections.

Once we " unset OS_TOKEN OS_URL "' and start using admin/demo script for authentication we need to change the file as mentioned below Edit the /usr/share/keystone/keystone-dist-paste.ini file and remove admin_token_auth from the [pipeline:public_api], [pipeline:admin_api], and [pipeline:api_v3] sections.

so always if you follow the sequence then there will be no errors . If we are not changing the file but variables you may get invalid credential errors.

I have faced this issue recently and I had tried exporting the service token and endpoint, as mentioned on many sites. I had checked my admin token in the keystone.conf file. Nothing seemed to have worked until you restart keystone for it to save the changes you have done until now.

o try: restart keystone
