Hi, everyone! I have a very noob question. I can't understand basics.

I am trying to go through https://github.com/openstack/watcher/blob/master/doc/source/deploy/configuration.rst (watcher configuration guide). And I can not unserstand what this actually does:

$ openstack role add --project service --user watcher admin
$ openstack role add --user watcher --project admin admin

Why do I need --project service? What does it do?

According to http://docs.openstack.org/developer/python-openstackclient/command-objects/role.html#role-add (docs) it is just

--project <project>

Include <project> (name or ID)

So? What does it mean? I would love to have more info.

Thank you in advance.

This command is adding the admin role to the user 'watcher' in the project 'service'.

This project (depending on how Openstack was deployed could be named 'services') is commonly used by other Openstack services as well such as Nova, Keystone, Neutron etc.
