nova list --os-username test --os-tenant-name tenant1 --os-password testing list

shows all vms in tenant1 created by any user.

The same happens for nova delete. Any user can list or delete any other user's VM's in the same tenant without admin privileges. I have double checked the user's roles in keystone.

Shouldnt it be that only admins are allowed to list and delete any VMs. The regular users should be allowed to list and delete only the VMs that they own. User A in tenant1 should not be allowed to list or delete VMs created by user B.

Why are not admin members able to list and delete instances from other members ?? Probably because the admin is not part of the tenant1 tenant. You can list all VMs from all tenant using "nova list --all-tenants".

ok, I now know that I have to edit nova's policy.json file. How do i create a rule that only the admin/owner of the VM can list/edit his VMs?
