How to migrate a vm to a different project?

Dear Openstack community,

I have one vm under the admin project I would like to migrate to migrate to a different project. Reason is the vm user wants to manage it himself. I have created a project and a user/password for that user and now I need to migrate the vm.

I have not been able to find a way to do this, so I was thinking in doing this:

Create an image from the vm
Shelve the vm (I don't have more hosts to run it because it has a x4 GPUs attached to it and don't have spare host with free resources)
Create a new vm based on image as the new user/project
Destroy the shelved vm

Would this work?

Please correct me if there is an easier/safer way of doing this.

Thank you very much
