Hi Brent,

I am running OpenStack ESSEX in my cloud. If it is possible, can you tell me the steps to assign an admin role to a user in keystone.

Do I have to change anything in the policy.json related to the servers API?

Currently I use this API for getting the servers details - "compute_extension:extended_server_attributes": []

No - you need a token with admin creds for that (user must have admin role in keystone).
Once you have the correct creds, you can use the nova cli:

nova list  --all-tenants

If you wanted to see how this looks in the raw API, just pass the debug flag in the cli and it will show you the correct post.

Hallo All,

Is it possible using the Nova API for a normal user / tenant to get all VMs belonging to other users / tenants?

If yes, can I get to know how to achieve this?
