I've now tried everything I can in my mitaka installation, to create a project specifik admin user.

I have the default domain and the admin user there, and he's capable of managing everything. (Although I had to use the admin_project_name setting in keystone.conf to get it to work. It dont NOT work with just updating the domain-version of policy.json to have the "cloud_admin" rule with the default domain id that I use for domain wide admin. Maybe the default domain is not allowed for this?)

Anyway. I've created a separate Cloud1 domain, with a student1 user, and an "admin1" user. The admin1 user has the admin role on the StackLab project, belonging to domain Cloud1.

I have even used tcpdump on :35357 and checked that the token that openstack CLI is receiving says:

Which to me implies that I have a token scoped to my project, WITH admin role. Using horizon allows the admin user to login, but he cant see s**t, since he's not allowed to list projects or users, or anything it seems...

What is missing?!?!?! Why is the information on creating different domain/project specific admins so...sparse!?

I have a similar issue, with the admin being able to create instance, networks, but cant do anything that deals with the Identity tab. Did you happen to find a solution?
