If I do the same installation using packstack and change the keystone from UUID to PKI, I cannot select any of those options.

I assume, you're speaking of horizon.

PKI tokens are significantly bigger than uuid tokens. This causes
session issues in Horizon.
Depending on your version of django-openstack-auth, you even might see a
token handling issue occurring only with pki tokens. It has been fixed
in a later version.

If you want to use pki token and horizon, you should configure database
backed sessions.


and set  SESSION_ENGINE to "django.contrib.sessions.backends.cached_db".


That should ease the pain.
