Hi, the steps for updating quota for a specific project are on the doc 
you linked here:


$ openstack quota set --QUOTA QUOTA_VALUE PROJECT

This will change the default quota for that project, so all existing 
users in the project will get that quota and all future users in the 
project will get that quota.

Note that the ability to set specific user quota [1] is planned to be 
removed in a future release:

"User-specific quotas are legacy and will be removed when migration to 
unified limits is complete. User-specific quotas were added as a way to 
provide two-level hierarchical quotas and this feature is already being 
offered in unified limits. For this reason, the below commands have not 
and will not be ported to openstackclient."

Hope that helps.
