Hello Stackers, I am new to Django framework. We are developing a client server application in which i want the user to be redirected to the Openstack-dashboard profile page from our portal on click of a button. It should be able to get authentication with post variables and bypass the login page. I am finding it hard to make correct request. I am using Curl with PHP to make request. Seems my request url is right but i cannot pass the credentials as POST variables. Suggestions are appreciated, i am open to use anything other than curl. Any example would be great.

Thanks in advance

I have tried using API's too. What i exactly want to do is, to be able to pass the credentials using POST request get the authentication and direclty go to user page on openstack dashboard bypassing the login page. Can you please guide, which API will work for it and how may i use it. Or if there is any other way of achieving this. Thanks

What exactly are you trying to do? If you're trying to programmatically interact with your OpenStack installation via the web, you're much better off using the APIs that have been established for this purpose rather than abusing the dashboard. See, e.g,
