python-keystoneclient 0.1.3

Client library for OpenStack Keystone API

Latest Version: 3.15.0

Python bindings to the OpenStack Keystone API

This is a client for the OpenStack Keystone API. There's a Python API (the
``keystoneclient`` module), and a command-line script (``keystone``). The
Keystone 2.0 API is still a moving target, so this module will remain in
"Beta" status until the API is finalized and fully implemented.

Development takes place via the usual OpenStack processes as outlined in
the `OpenStack wiki`_. The master repository is on GitHub__.


This code a fork of `Rackspace's python-novaclient`__ which is in turn a fork of
`Jacobian's python-cloudservers`__. The python-keystoneclient is licensed under
the Apache License like the rest of OpenStack.

Python API

By way of a quick-start::

# use v2.0 auth with")
>>> from keystoneclient.v2_0 import client
>>> keystone = client.Client(username=USERNAME, password=PASSWORD, tenant_name=TENANT, auth_url=AUTH_URL)
>>> keystone.tenants.list()
>>> tenant = keystone.tenants.create(tenant_name="test", description="My new tenant!", enabled=True)
>>> tenant.delete()

Command-line API

Installing this package gets you a shell command, ``keystone``, that you
can use to interact with Keystone's Identity API.

You'll need to provide your OpenStack tenant, username and password. You can
do this with the ``--os-tenant-name``, ``--os-username`` and ``--os-password``
params, but it's easier to just set them as environment variables::

export OS_TENANT_NAME=project
export OS_USERNAME=user
export OS_PASSWORD=pass

You will also need to define the authentication url with ``--os-auth-url`` and the
version of the API with ``--os-identity-api-version``. Or set them as an environment
variables as well::

export OS_AUTH_URL=

Alternatively, to authenticate to Keystone without a username/password,
such as when there are no users in the database yet, use the service
token and endpoint arguemnts. The service token is set in keystone.conf as
``admin_token``; set it with ``service_token``. Note: keep the service token
secret as it allows total access to Keystone's database. The admin endpoint is set
with ``--endpoint`` or ``SERVICE_ENDPOINT``::

export SERVICE_TOKEN=thequickbrownfox-jumpsover-thelazydog

Since Keystone can return multiple regions in the Service Catalog, you
can specify the one you want with ``--region_name`` (or
``export OS_REGION_NAME``). It defaults to the first in the list returned.

You'll find complete documentation on the shell by running
``keystone help``::

usage: keystone [--os-username <auth-user-name>]
[--os-password <auth-password>]
[--os-tenant-name <auth-tenant-name>]
[--os-tenant-id <tenant-id>] [--os-auth-url <auth-url>]
[--os-region-name <region-name>]
[--os-identity-api-version <identity-api-version>]
[--token <service-token>] [--endpoint <service-endpoint>]
