Based on the thread entitled [all][policy][keystone] Better Policy Model and Representing Capabilites from October 20, I wrote some code to pull a policy.json file into Congress and figure out what roles are necessary to give access to a specific API call.

So if bundling this kind of functionality into Congress is a reasonable way forward, it seems doable technically.  We’re happy to help in any case, so let us know!

Subject: [openstack-dev] [Keystone] New Policy Administration Service
To: openstack-dev at lists.openstack.org<mailto:openstack-dev at lists.openstack.org>

Hi all,

In Paris, on the last day, we listed the new features that we would like to see in the next release of Keystone.
The top 3 were chosen as high priority.

Further down the list was a policy administration service that will collect policies from all the Openstack services and allow the Keystone administrator to ask the question "what role do I need to assign to a user to give access to these services?" and will allow users to ask the question "what can I access with my roles?".

We have now started to design and build this service. An important design decision is "should this service be integrated with Keystone or be a separated standalone Openstack service?" What does the Keystone group think?

If policy administration should be a separate service, what is the process to register blueprints, apis and code reviews?

Ioram and David
