Currently it's not possible, stack-list -g is the only "global" API
supported, and that is disabled by default in the policy.json.

This was discussed in the operator feedback session at summit, ref this


It sounds like there is a desire to see a general solution to this, but so
far we've resisted embracing the "global admin" concept, because it seemed
like several other projects made assumptions relating to the scope of the
admin role, ref https://bugs.launchpad.net/keystone/+bug/968696

I'll triage the heat bug mentioned above and we can continue discussion
