### OS_SERVICE_ENDPOINT vs OS_AUTH_URL

Hello I have been following a the pdf documentation for ubuntu 12.04/14/04 downloaded from openstack site using ubuntu 14.04. I have been following till the poing of the chapter 3 Configure the identity service where it's about creating an administrative user page 25.

keystone user-create --name=admin --pass=myadminpass --email=myadmin@email.com


it throws this following error:

Expecting an auth URL via either --os-auth-url or env[OS_AUTH_URL]

But up to that page there has never been any reference to OS_AUTH_URL variable. Only known to that point are

OS_SERVICE_TOKEN=mytoken
OS_SERVICE_ENDPOINT=http://controller:35357/v2.0


For search some use http://controller:5000/v2.0 . So which one to use. I am not sure whether it's an oversight from the documenters or I was supposed to have known that part. For the mean time I just need a way to continue my setup. There seem to be other variables like : OS_TENANT_NAME , OS_USERNAME , OS_PASSWORD, OS_AUTH_URL .

Kindly show me the way forward.

Thanks
