Hello Asha,

We are in the process of migrating our documentation to Sphinx, so I'd suggest following this link for Keystone configuration options [1].

I'd also note that a CR is pending with a bit more details to setup via a Docker Keystone here [2].

Subject: Barbican : Unable to authenticate with keystone V3 for Barbican curl command

Hi All ,

Could anyone please help me on this integration issue.
I am unable to authenticate with keystone V3  for Barbican curl command   .I have followed the procedure given in the following link :


I was unable to authenticate with the keystone V3 even though the right token was provided in the curl command
Please find the command to get the token and the curl command to post the secret .

[root at keystone-versiontest ~]# openstack --insecure token issue (Command to get token from keystone v3)
| Field      | Value                            |
| expires    | 2015-04-07T18:26:13.835641Z      |
| id         | f28b93f27cce4bc09f9ac50d84bde736 |
| project_id | 9d37f9ecc481422aa8ab53674cb82410 |
| user_id    | e7d02ed8e7e64b01a1d66bb86ffa90d8 |

[root at keystone-versiontest ~]# curl -X POST -H 'content-type:application/json' -H 'X-Project-Id:12345' \
> -H "X-Auth-Token:f28b93f27cce4bc09f9ac50d84bde736" -d '{"payload": "my-secret-here", "payload_content_type": "text/plain"}' http://localhost:9311/v1/secrets
Authentication required[root at keystone-versiontest ~]#

The contents of the admin.opensrc file is as given below :

[root at keystone-versiontest ~]# cat admin.openrc
export OS_USERNAME=admin
export OS_TENANT_NAME=admin
export OS_PASSWORD=admin
export OS_AUTH_URL=
export OS_REGION_NAME=RegionOne
export OS_USER_DOMAIN_ID=default
export OS_PROJECT_DOMAIN_ID=default

And also I have attached the  barbican-api-paste.ini and barbican-admin-paste.ini files.

I would like to know why the curl command for posting the secret is not geting authenticated with Keystone V3

Any help would highly be appreciated.
Thanks and Regards,
Asha Seshagiri
