I only have the admin username and password. Via this admin tenant I need to create instances for different users. Is this possible?

I could create ports via admin for different tenant's networks in quantum, but could not figure out creating instances in a similar way in nova.

Why dont you add admin user to required projects? keystone user-role-add --user admin --role admin --tenant test

I know I can do that, But why is that not required in creating ports via admin in quantum. Is there a similar way we can achieve resource creation in nova too or is adding user the only way to go forward?

guessing by the responses that adding the role is the only way..?

interestingly without adding the role, one can do get & put & delete on an across-tenant instance, but not the post to create a across-tenant instance.

You don't create instances for users. You create proejcts (not tenants anymore) and assign users the role in that that project, and let them create the instances themseleves
