I installed an openstack mitaka controller and compute. I want to test a multi domain use case. But my openstack dashboard doesnt show menu where i can list or create new domains. Can some one help here? I am logged into default domain and i am an admin user.

Hi Tamil.

Thanks for the response !

I am getting the following error

root@civcez347:/etc/keystone# curl -s -H "X-Auth-Token: mytoken" -X PUT {"error": {"message": "You are not authorized to perform the requested action: identity:create_grant", "code": 403,

you are getting this error, due to permissions or authorization issue. kindly check the keystone user-list and endpoints.

Hi, The error is misleading!!!

I am able to do list stuff from cli

root@civcez347:~# openstack domain list +----------------------------------+---------+---------+----------------+ | ID | Name | Enabled | Description | +----------------------------------+-------

in openstack mitaka, is the default domain an admin domain? I am really getting confused !!

yes, when you install open stack setup, you will be creating the domain default , under which you will be creating the users admin, demo etc..,

I did the following steps on the default install and the domains menu appeared

Step 1:. admin-openrc

Step 2: openstack role add --domain default --user admin admin (During the initial keystone config, I had only done this openstack role add --project admin --user admin admin , so the above step is additional ..assigning admin role to admin user on default domain)

I think there is a new keystone v3 policy.json file for liberty as well ! i got to know abt this while facing this issue

and hence used this file

I tried to create a new domain from the dashboard, the message was new domain was created. But the listing of domains in horizon showed up only the default domain and not the newly created domain.

I also tried matching the policy.json(above file) with keystone_policy.json of horizon.

Can any one help further?

root@civcez347:~# openstack domain list +----------------------------------+---------+---------+----------------+ | ID | Name | Enabled | Description | +----------------------------------+---------+---------+----------------+ | ff7b6cffdac74819af4f927c1f0f59a3 | default | True | Default Domain | | 5567b66ff4a454af4f92eaqs0f59a3 | dom1 | True | dom1 |

Thanks Shiva
