Chapter 6. Domain Management

Identity Service (keystone) domains are additional namespaces you can create in keystone. You would use keystone domains to partition users, groups, and projects. These separate domains can also be configured to authenticate users in different LDAP or Active Directory environments. For more information see Integrate with Identity Service.

Note

Identity Service includes a built-in domain called Default. It is suggested you reserve this domain only for service accounts, and create a separate domain for user accounts.

6.1. View a List of Domains

You can view a list of domains using openstack domain list. For example:

$ openstack domain list
+----------------------------------+------------------+---------+--------------------+
| ID                               | Name             | Enabled | Description        |
+----------------------------------+------------------+---------+--------------------+
| 3abefa6f32c14db9a9703bf5ce6863e1 | TestDomain       | True    |                    |
| 69436408fdcb44ab9e111691f8e9216d | corp             | True    |                    |
| a4f61a8feb8d4253b260054c6aa41adb | federated_domain | True    |                    |
| default                          | Default          | True    | The default domain |
+----------------------------------+------------------+---------+--------------------+
Note

If this command is not available, check you have enabled keystone v3 for your command line session.

6.2. Create a New Domain

You can create a new domain using openstack domain create. For example:

$ openstack domain create TestDomain
+-------------+----------------------------------+
| Field       | Value                            |
+-------------+----------------------------------+
| description |                                  |
| enabled     | True                             |
| id          | 3abefa6f32c14db9a9703bf5ce6863e1 |
| name        | TestDomain                       |
+-------------+----------------------------------+

6.3. View the Details of a Domain

You can view the details of a domain using openstack domain show. For example:

$ openstack domain show TestDomain
+-------------+----------------------------------+
| Field       | Value                            |
+-------------+----------------------------------+
| description |                                  |
| enabled     | True                             |
| id          | 3abefa6f32c14db9a9703bf5ce6863e1 |
| name        | TestDomain                       |
+-------------+----------------------------------+

6.4. Disable a Domain

  1. You can disable a domain using --disable. For example:

    $ openstack domain set TestDomain --disable
  2. Confirm the domain has been disabled:

    $ openstack domain show TestDomain
    +-------------+----------------------------------+
    | Field       | Value                            |
    +-------------+----------------------------------+
    | description |                                  |
    | enabled     | False                            |
    | id          | 3abefa6f32c14db9a9703bf5ce6863e1 |
    | name        | TestDomain                       |
    +-------------+----------------------------------+
  3. You can then re-enable the domain, if required:

    $ openstack domain set TestDomain --enable
