[Openstack] Assume user or create a instance for a user as admin

Using the nova command, you can do ‘nova —os-project-name=PROJECT_NAME boot’ to create an instance in that tenant, assuming your admin user has access to that tenant.    You could also export the OS_PROJECT_NAME environment variable to your desired project and use the nova or openstack commands directly.

Hope this helps.

I have been trying to find a way where I can create an instance for a
user/project as the admin user.

So my question is:

Is there a way for the admin user to get a token as a user or am I
missing som option/environment variable to make 'openstack server
create' create the instance in a project of my choosing.
