Services tenant was deleted how to restore functionality

Solution Unverified - Updated -


The services tenant/project was accidentally deleted in our openstack environment.

What are the steps to potentially fix this without having to reinstall?


Services project was removed from OpenStack installation. Results in access by admin and users to various services (heat,cinder,nova,neutron) being inaccessible via web, cli and api.


  1. In web gui user gets "Oops something went wrong!" when trying to login. User can get get valid token at command line (keystone token-get) but authorization fails.
  2. Openstack-status shows the following:
    == Glance images ==
    Request returned failure status.
    Invalid OpenStack Identity credentials.
