glance configuration options in docs

I am installing and configuring glance in a CentOS 7 VM, following the official guide It suggests the following configuration in /etc/glance/glance-api.conf:

auth_uri = http://controller:5000
auth_url = http://controller:35357
auth_plugin = password
project_domain_id = default
user_domain_id = default
project_name = service
username = glance
password = GLANCE_PASS

The auth_uri/auth_url pattern looks rather bizarre to me. Thus I referred to the (configuration reference), and it has identity_uri instead. Do they function in the same way? auth_url is described as a registry configuration option, in the DEFAULT section, which should be in /etc/glance/glance-registry.conf I suppose? Furthermore, there are admin_user, admin_password, admin_tenant_name etc., but username, password, project_domain_id and others are not found in the reference. Which document is correct, or both are? Why?

here you got a link where to find information about auth_plugin usage, it explains why auth_url and auth_uri are used instead of the older ones(admin_user,admin_password, ...)
