Fantastic, thank you so much. It didn't occur to me to try the actual POST as opposed to relying on documentation to be accurate. Highly appreciate your advice.

2015-02-10 15:12:14 -0600 asked a question How to retrieve RSA private key when creating keypair using Compute API?

I'm currently writing a simple UI for doing a limited set of actions in Openstack and I've become stuck on allowing the user of the interface to make a call to create a keypair, and then get a .pem file in return with their private key.

As far as I'm aware the POST/v2/​{tenant_id}​/os-keypairs only returns a response with the public key, fingerprint,name and user id. I'm a novice with this type of security so I may be missing something straightforward, but any advice on how to handle keypair creation in this way would be appreciated!
