Hello All,

Operating System: Ubuntu Server 12.04.

I have blundered while defining the Nova endpoint urls, I entered the following (I have replaced my service id with the letter x:

keystone endpoint-create

You will notice that I accidentally used the { instead of the (

May I please know how to purge the messed up urls so I can start over?

Here is some Nova debug info:

While waiting for a solution to my issue, I spinned up another VM and built it using the same instructions, when I got to the part that caused my troubles, I made sure to prevent another typo. All is well. I have just installed the dashboard. You can go ahead and close this thread.

That is good news. In your command you are trying to delete 'keystone endpoint-delete'. Instead of this you can delete the service itself i.e keystone service-delete <service-id>. Use the service id same as the one you used for creating the endpoint. if not you can try the following directly with db itself. 1. mysql -u root -p 2. enter the sql password now 3. use keystone; 4. select * from endpoint; 5. You will see the list entries. 6. select * from endpoint where legacy_endpoint_id="cf60484bb4a748e1a31550c8343b86f0"; 7. delete from endpoint where legacy_endpoint_id="cf60484bb4a748e1a31550c8343b86f0"; Above legacy_endpoint_id is same as id shown when you run the keystone endpoint-list command. You can restart the 'service keystone restart' If this does not work do let me know. Post this you can restart your keystone If this also does not work I will figure out the SQL query to delete this endpoint.

Otherwise, access the database and update the wrong row with the correct value

It's absolutely workable and a little exciting to handle it from database. Thank you for your good guide.

Thank you for you post! The work-around with DB saved me a lot of time! Let me share my experience because it may me useful for others...

I followed the link below in order to install heat on my openstack environment: (link text)

Theoretically everything went fine, but after all the above steps, nothing was working as far as keystone is concerned e.g.

[root@controller ~(keystone_admin)]# keystone tenant-list Authorization Failed: Malformed endpoint URL ( ( ), see ERROR log for details. (HTTP 500)

[root@controller ~(keystone_admin)]# keystone endpoint-list Authorization Failed: Malformed endpoint URL ( ( ), see ERROR log for details. (HTTP 500)

[root@controller ~(keystone_admin)]# glance image-list ...(more)

Hi Did you set all the necessary tokens, username, password , tenant ids as environment variables before running this command ?

Why don't you delete it and recreate?

# keystone endpoint-delete
usage: keystone endpoint-delete <endpoint-id>

When I do that, I get the following:
keystone endpoint-delete xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Authorization Failed: Malformed endpoint URL ( ({tenant_id)s)), see ERROR log for details. (HTTP 500)
