I'm having issues with the Openstack featured plugins. I cannot connect to novaclient with my openstack credentials. I'm using the check from here: (

But I'm having issues with this line: client = Client(NOVA_API_VERSION, args.user, args.password, args.tenant, args.auth_url, service_type=args.service_type)

I've run the check with the proper username, password, and tenant. I am using localhost:5000 as the authentication url and compute as the service type.

I confirmed that the username and password were correct by logging in to my horizon dashboard. I am also able to see the list of hypervisors from the dashboard, meaning that I have admin privileges. However, I'm still having trouble authenticating. When I run the check, nothing happens, and when I Ctrl+C, it interrupts with this message:

File "/etc/sensu/plugins/", line 70, in <module> main() File "/etc/sensu/plugins/", line 47, in main if client.authenticate(): File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/novaclient/", line 118, in wrapper return f(self, args, *kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/novaclient/v2/", line 259, in authenticate self.client.authenticate() File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/novaclient/", line 553, in authenticate auth_url = self._v2_auth(auth_url) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/novaclient/", line 644, in _v2_auth return self._authenticate(url, body) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/novaclient/", line 657, in _authenticate *kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/novaclient/", line 393, in _time_request resp, body = self.request(url, method, *kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/novaclient/", line 364, in request *kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/", line 50, in request response = session.request(method=method, url=url, *kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/", line 465, in request resp = self.send(prep, *send_kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/", line 573, in send r = adapter.send(request, *kwargs) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/", line 370, in send timeout=timeout File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/packages/urllib3/", line 544, in urlopen body=body, headers=headers) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/requests/packages/urllib3/", line 372, in _make_request httplib_response = conn.getresponse(buffering=True)

I have added a line in my code just to make sure that it's the authentication that is not working:

if client.authenticate(): print("worked")

and this does not work, leading me to believe ... (more)
