All management of users, tenants and service endpoints should be done using the "keystone" client. Don't use "nova-manage user *", those commands predate keystone and are now obsolete.

Take a look at the "Installing OpenStack Identity Service" for the Install & Deploy Guide for how to get started defining users, tenants, and services with keystone: http://docs.openstack.org/essex/openstack-compute/install/apt/content/ch_installing-openstack-identity-service.html

The Identity management chapter in the OpenStack Compute Admin Guide should also be helpful here:
