3.2. Create the Identity Database

Create the database and database user used by the Identity service. All steps in this procedure must be performed on the database server, while logged in as the root user.

Procedure 3.1. Creating the Identity Service Database

  1. Connect to the database service:
    # mysql -u root -p
  2. Create the keystone database:
    mysql> CREATE DATABASE keystone;
  3. Create a keystone database user and grant the user access to the keystone database:
    mysql> GRANT ALL ON keystone.* TO 'keystone'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';
    mysql> GRANT ALL ON keystone.* TO 'keystone'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';
    Replace PASSWORD with a secure password that will be used to authenticate with the database server as this user.
