I have succesfully installed OpenStack Juno via devstack. All the services are running without any issue and I can perform any task successfully via command-line. However, I cannot access the dashboard. I see this error when logging into the dashboard:

{"error": {"message": "Expecting to find username or userId in passwordCredentials - the server could not comply with the request since it is either malformed or otherwise incorrect. The client is assumed to be in error.", "code": 400, "title": "Bad Request"}}

What could be the reason for that?

Through command line check if all the required services are running, also check if rabbitmq-server, keystone-service is up and running many times it doesn't start properly, also browse your database and check username in keystone DB.

I was missing to source the self-created file with admin credentials

export OS_USERNAME=admin
export OS_PASSWORD=admin_pass
export OS_TENANT_NAME=admin
export OS_AUTH_URL=http://localhost:35357/v2.0

Now, it works fine.
