I just started to learn openstack. So please forgive me to ask a quite stupid question.

If a user A has a admin role in tenant 1, can it be considered also granted admin role in other tenants under the same domain?

What is the boundary of admin role then?

Thanks a lot

No. Role assignment is a tuple ( user, tenant, role) . If you wan't "admin" role for another tenant for the same user, you need to explictly assign it. This is the most commonly used pattern.

Having said that, there is a way to inherit roles if you have tenant hieracrhy. It is an experimental feature in Kilo
