How can I identify the admin project in a OpenStack environment?

[root@localhost ~(keystone_admin)]# keystone tenant-list
|                id                |   name   | enabled |
| db2cc12da91f403994ada8bf22a8e2bf |  admin   |   True  |
| 062007701fcb49e7a62f5911d0296c92 |   demo   |   True  |
| 45981d5267bf45a3b7b245b1b96ad93d | services |   True  |

Here "keystone tenant-list" listed down all the project that I have. Say for example I have multiple projects (more than 10), with various names, non of those projects have project name as "Admin". How can I identify the Admin project?

There is nothing called 'admin" project. Each project associate admin capability with some specific role. Unfortunately that role name is called "admin" in every service/project.

Assuming you are using the default setup, you can do the following

     Create a user                :   NonAdminUser
     Create a project            :   NonAdminProject
     Associate  "admin" role  for "NonAdminUser"  on "NonAdminProject"

Now "NonAdminProject" can be considered  as admin project for the user NonAdminUser

To Summarize, any project which has "admin" role assignment for any user is considered as "admin" project for that user.
