How do I, as a non-admin user, list my permissions I have in my own tenant?

By default there are just two roles in OpenStack (keystone): admin and member. As a member you suppose to be able to work just inside of particular tenant, or if you assigned to more than one, you can have access to multiple tenants.

Usually as a member of the tenant you can do all activities inside the tenant based on the tenant quotas.

You should be able to create, destroy and modify: networks, virtual instances, assign and release floating ip's, create and destroy volumes, work with private and public images and etc..

Also, important to mention, as a member of the tenant you should be able to interact with cloud API's.

On the other hand, as a admin, you can do the same without limitation to particular tenant.

Good luck!

Thanks for the awesome response! I will look more there....However (my bad for not being more specific!) how would I know as a user in a tenant, what my permissions are, without having to say, ask a cloud admin? Can I list my own permissions?

Hello , I have any questions because I am working with API v2 but I can work as Admin only.

I need to know how I can work as member (this member have project or tenant that i created as Admin) .

I need make the next consultations:

  • List all Flavors per Tenant(As Member), I used:



        "message": "Malformed request URL: URL's project_id 'ID_TENANT' doesn't match Context's project_id 'ID_TENANT_ADMIN'",
        "code": 400

Only return Flavors if I put as ID_TENANT an ID_TENANT_ADMIN.

I need to know I can access as member from API because I want to make same operations how if I use dashboard horizon.

Thanks for your help.
