You can get admin_pass from the openstack metadata directory in config drive, and use a boot-time script to set the password accordingly.
This example assumes the dhcp style metadata, but you can see how you could simply change it to read the fail instead

And now, the config drive is working perfectly used by the cloud-init which mounts the /dev/sr0, takes metadata, sets users, and so. The problem is that the admin password set in Horizon is not included inside the instance, instead, the root password of /etc/shadow changes in every instance.
