Identity API v3 (CURRENT)

The Identity service generates authentication tokens that permit access to the OpenStack services REST APIs. Clients obtain this token and the URL endpoints for other service APIs by supplying their valid credentials to the authentication service.

Each time you make a REST API request to an OpenStack service, you supply your authentication token in the X-Auth-Token request header.

Like most OpenStack projects, OpenStack Identity protects its APIs by defining policy rules based on a role-based access control (RBAC) approach.

The Identity service configuration file sets the name and location of a JSON policy file that stores these rules.

For information about Identity API protection, see Identity API protection with role-based access control (RBAC) in the OpenStack Cloud Administrator Guide.

This page lists the Identity API operations in the following order:

Authentication and token management

In exchange for a set of authentication credentials, the Identity service generates tokens. A token represents the authenticated identity of a user and, optionally, grants authorization on a specific project or domain.

The body of an authentication request must include a payload that specifies the authentication method, which is password or token, the credentials, and, optionally, the authorization scope. You can scope a token to a project or domain, or the token can be unscoped. You cannot scope a token to both a project and domain.

Tokens have IDs, which the Identity API returns in the X-Subject-Token response header.

Also, validates an authentication token and lists the domains, projects, roles, and endpoints to which the token gives access. Forces the immediate revocation of a token.

After you obtain an authentication token, you can:

  • Make REST API requests to other OpenStack services. You supply the ID of your authentication token in the X-Auth-Token request header.
  • Validate your authentication token and list the domains, projects, roles, and endpoints that your token gives you access to.
  • Use your token to request another token scoped for a different domain and project.
  • Force the immediate revocation of a token.
  • List revoked public key infrastructure (PKI) tokens.

The Identity API treats expired tokens as no longer valid tokens. The deployment determines how long expired tokens are stored.

These authentication errors can occur:

Authentication errors

Response code Description
Bad Request (400)

The Identity service failed to parse the request as expected. One of the following errors occurred:

  • A required attribute was missing.
  • An attribute that is not allowed was specified, such as an ID on a POST request in a basic CRUD operation.
  • An attribute of an unexpected data type was specified.
Unauthorized (401)

One of the following errors occurred:

  • Authentication was not performed.
  • The specified X-Auth-Token header is not valid.
  • The authentication credentials are not valid.
Forbidden (403) The identity was successfully authenticated but it is not authorized to perform the requested action.
Not Found (404) An operation failed because a referenced entity cannot be found by ID. For a POST request, the referenced entity might be specified in the request body rather than in the resource path.
Conflict (409)

A POST or PATCH operation failed. For example, a client tried to update a unique attribute for an entity, which conflicts with that of another entity in the same collection.

Or, a client issued a create operation twice on a collection with a user-defined, unique attribute. For example, a client made a POST /users request two times for the unique, user-defined name attribute for a user entity.

POST
/v3/auth/tokens
Password authentication with unscoped authorization

Authenticates an identity and generates a token. Uses the password authentication method. Authorization is unscoped.

The request body must include a payload that specifies the authentication method, which is password, and the user, by ID or name, and password credentials.

expires_at body string

The date and time when the token expires.

The date and time stamp format is ISO 8601:

CCYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss±hh:mm

For example, 2015-08-27T09:49:58-05:00.

The ±hh:mm value, if included, is the time zone as an offset from UTC. In the previous example, the offset value is -05:00.

A null value indicates that the token never expires.

HEAD
/v3/auth/tokens
Check token

Validates a token.

This call is similar to GET /auth/tokens but no response body is provided even in the X-Subject-Token header.

The Identity API returns the same response as when the subject token was issued by POST /auth/tokens even if an error occurs because the token is not valid. An HTTP 204 response code indicates that the X-Subject-Token is valid.

Credentials

In exchange for a set of authentication credentials that the user submits, the Identity service generates and returns a token. A token represents the authenticated identity of a user and, optionally, grants authorization on a specific project or domain.

You can list all credentials, and create, show details for, update, and delete a credential.

POST
/v3/credentials
Create credential

Creates a credential.

The following example shows how to create an EC2-style credential. The credential blob is a string that contains a JSON-serialized dictionary with the access and secret keys. This format is required when you specify the ec2 type. To specify other credentials, such as access_key, change the type and contents of the data blob.

Domains

A domain is a collection of users, groups, and projects. Each group and project is owned by exactly one domain.

Each domain defines a namespace where certain API-visible name attributes exist, which affects whether those names must be globally unique or unique within that domain. In the Identity API, the uniqueness of these attributes is as follows:

  • Domain name. Globally unique across all domains.
  • Role name. Globally unique across all domains.
  • User name. Unique within the owning domain.
  • Project name. Unique within the owning domain.
  • Group name. Unique within the owning domain.

/v3/domains
Create domain

Creates a domain.

Normal response codes: 201 Error response codes: 413,415,405,404,403,401,400,503,409

Request

Name In Type Description
domain body object A domain object, containing:
enabled (Optional) body string

If set to true, domain is created enabled. If set to false, domain is created disabled. The default is true.

Users can only authorize against an enabled domain (and any of its projects). In addition, users can only authenticate if the domain that owns them is also enabled. Disabling a domain prevents both of these things.

description (Optional) body string The description of the domain.
name body string The name of the domain.

Request Example

{
    "domain": {
        "description": "Domain description",
        "enabled": true,
        "name": "myDomain"
    }
}

Response Parameters

Name In Type Description
domain body object A domain object, containing:
description body string The description of the domain.
enabled body string If set to true, domain is enabled. If set to false, domain is disabled.
id body string The ID of the domain.

}
PATCH
/v3/domains/{domain_id}
Update domain

Updates a domain.

Normal response codes: 200 Error response codes: 413,415,405,404,403,401,400,503,409

Request

Name In Type Description
domain_id path string The domain ID.
domain body object A domain object, containing:
enabled (Optional) body string

If set to true, domain is enabled. If set to false, domain is disabled. The default is true.

Users can only authorize against an enabled domain (and any of its projects). In addition, users can only authenticate if the domain that owns them is also enabled. Disabling a domain prevents both of these things. When you disable a domain, all tokens that are authorized for that domain become no longer valid. If you reenable the domain, these tokens are not re-enabled.

description (Optional) body string The new description of the domain.
name (Optional) body string The new name of the domain.

Request Example

{
    "domain": {
        "description": "Owns users and projects on Identity API v2."
    }
}

Response Parameters

Name In Type Description
domain body object A domain object, containing:
description body string The description of the domain.
enabled body string If set to true, domain is enabled. If set to false, domain is disabled.
id body string The ID of the domain.
links body object The links to the domain resource.
name body string The name of the domain.

Response Example

{

    }
}
DELETE
/v3/domains/{domain_id}
Delete domain

Deletes a domain.

To minimize the risk of accidentally deleting a domain, you must first disable the domain by using the update domain method.

When you delete a domain, this call also deletes all entities owned by it, such as users, groups, and projects, and any credentials and granted roles that relate to those entities.

If you try to delete an enabled domain, this call returns the Forbidden (403) response code.

You can manage domain-specific configuration options.

Domain-specific configuration options are structured within their group objects. The API supports only the identity and ldap groups. These groups override the default configuration settings for the storage of users and groups by the Identity server.

You can create, update, and delete domain-specific configuration options by using the HTTP PUT , PATCH , and DELETE methods. When updating, it is only necessary to include those options that are being updated.

To create an option, use the PUT method. The Identity API does not return options that are considered sensitive, although you can create and update these options. The only option currently considered sensitive is the password option within the ldap group.

The API enables you to include sensitive options as part of non- sensitive options. For example, you can include the password as part of the url option.

If you try to create or update configuration options for groups other than the identity or ldap groups, the Forbidden (403) response code is returned.

For information about how to integrate the Identity service with LDAP, see Integrate Identity with LDAP.

Groups

A group is a collection of users. Each group is owned by a domain.

You can use groups to ease the task of managing role assignments for users. Assigning a role to a group on a project or domain is equivalent to assigning the role to each group member on that project or domain.

When you unassign a role from a group, that role is automatically unassigned from any user that is a member of the group. Any tokens that authenticates those users to the relevant project or domain are revoked.

As with users, a group without any role assignments is useless from the perspective of an OpenStack service and has no access to resources. However, a group without role assignments is permitted as a way of acquiring or loading users and groups from external sources before mapping them to projects and domains.

OS-INHERIT API

Enables projects to inherit role assignments from either their owning domain or projects that are higher in the hierarchy.

(Since API v3.4) The OS-INHERIT extension allows inheritance from both projects and domains. To access project inheritance, the Identity service server must run at least API v3.4.

PUT
/v3/OS-INHERIT/domains/{domain_id}/users/{user_id}/roles/{role_id}/inherited_to_projects
Assign role to user on projects owned by domain

Relationship: http://developer.openstack.org/api-ref/identity/v3/index.html#assign-role-to-user-owned-by-domain-projects

Assigns a role to a user in projects owned by a domain.

The inherited role is only applied to the owned projects (both existing and future projects), and will not appear as a role in a domain scoped token.

Since this list is likely to be very long, this API would typically always be used with one of more of the filter queries. Some typical examples are:

GET /v3/role_assignments?user.id={user_id} would list all role assignments involving the specified user.

GET /v3/role_assignments?scope.project.id={project_id} would list all role assignments involving the specified project.

It is also possible to list all role assignments within a tree of projects: GET /v3/role_assignments?scope.project.id={project_id}?include_subtree=true would list all role assignments involving the specified project and all sub-projects. include_subtree=true can only be specified in conjunction with scope.project.id, specifiying it without this will result in an HTTP 400 Bad Request being returned.

Each role assignment entity in the collection contains a link to the assignment that gave rise to this entity.

The scope section in the list response is extended to allow the representation of role assignments that are inherited to projects.

The query filter scope.OS-INHERIT:inherited_to can be used to filter based on role assignments that are inherited. The only value of scope.OS-INHERIT:inherited_to that is currently supported is projects, indicating that this role is inherited to all projects of the owning domain or parent project.

If the query parameter effective is specified, rather than simply returning a list of role assignments that have been made, the API returns a list of effective assignments at the user, project and domain level, having allowed for the effects of group membership, role inference rules as well as inheritance from the parent domain or project. Since the effects of group membership have already been allowed for, the group role assignment entities themselves will not be returned in the collection. Likewise, since the effects of inheritance have already been allowed for, the role assignment entities themselves that specify the inheritance will also not be returned in the collection. This represents the effective role assignments that would be included in a scoped token. The same set of query parameters can also be used in combination with the effective parameter.

For example:

GET /v3/role_assignments?user.id={user_id}&effective would, in other words, answer the question “what can this user actually do?”.

GET /v3/role_assignments?user.id={user_id}&scope.project.id={project_id}&effective would return the equivalent set of role assignments that would be included in the token response of a project scoped token.

An example response for an API call with the query parameter effective specified is given below:

{
    "role_assignments": [
        {
            "links": {
                "assignment": "http://example.com/identity/v3/domains/161718/users/313233/roles/123456"
            },
            "role": {
                "id": "123456"
            },
            "scope": {
                "domain": {
                    "id": "161718"
                }
            },
            "user": {
                "id": "313233"
            }
        },
        {
            "links": {
                "assignment": "http://example.com/identity/v3/projects/456789/groups/101112/roles/123456",
                "membership": "http://example.com/identity/v3/groups/101112/users/313233"
            },
            "role": {
                "id": "123456"
            },
            "scope": {
                "project": {
                    "id": "456789"
                }
            },
            "user": {

        "previous": null,
        "next": null
    }
}

The entity links section of a response using the effective query parameter also contains, for entities that are included by virtue of group membership, a url that can be used to access the membership of the group.

If the query parameter include_names is specified, rather than simply returning the entity IDs in the role assignments, the collection will additionally include the names of the entities. For example:

GET /v3/role_assignments?user.id={user_id}&effective&include_names=true would return:

Policies

A policy is an arbitrarily serialized policy engine rule set to be consumed by a remote service.

You encode policy rule sets into a blob that remote services can consume. To do so, set type to application/json and specify policy rules as JSON strings in a blob. For example:

{
    "blob":{
        "foobar_user":[
            "role:compute-user"
        ]
    }
}

Projects

A project is the base unit of resource ownership. Resources are owned by a specific project. A project is owned by a specific domain.

(Since Identity API v3.4) You can create a hierarchy of projects by setting a parent_id when you create a project. All projects in a hierarchy must be owned by the same domain.

(Since Identity API v3.6) Projects may, in addition to acting as containers for OpenStack resources, act as a domain (by setting the attribute is_domain to true), in which case it provides a namespace in which users, groups and other projects can be created. In fact, a domain created using the POST /domains API will actually be represented as a project with is_domain set to true with no parent (parent_id is null).

Given this, all projects are considered part of a project hierarchy. Projects created in a domain prior to v3.6 are represented as a two-level hierarchy, with a project that has is_domain set to true as the root and all other projects referencing the root as their parent.

A project acting as a domain can potentially also act as a container for OpenStack resources, although this depends on whether the policy rule for the relevant resource creation allows this.

Request

Name In Type Description
project body object A project object, containing:
is_domain (Optional) body boolean

Indicates whether the project also acts as a domain. If set to true, this project acts as both a project and domain. As a domain, the project provides a name space in which you can create users, groups, and other projects. If set to false, this project behaves as a regular project that contains only resources. Default is false. You cannot update this parameter after you create the project.

New in version 3.6

description (Optional) body string The description of the project.
domain_id (Optional) body string

The ID of the domain for the project.

For projects acting as a domain, the domain_id must not be specified, it will be generated by the Identity service implementation.

For regular projects (i.e. those not acing as a domain), if domain_id is not specified, but parent_id is specified, then the domain ID of the parent will be used. If neither domain_id or parent_id is specified, the Identity service implementation will default to the domain to which the client’s token is scoped. If both domain_id and parent_id are specified, and they do not indicate the same domain, an Bad Request (400) will be returned.

enabled (Optional) body boolean If set to true, project is enabled. If set to false, project is disabled. The default is true.
name body string The name of the project, which must be unique within the owning domain. A project can have the same name as its domain.
parent_id (Optional) body string

The ID of the parent of the project.

If specified on project creation, this places the project within a hierarchy and implicitly defines the owning domain, which will be the same domain as the parent specified. If parent_id is not specified and is_domain is false, then the project will use its owning domain as its parent. If is_domain is true (i.e. the project is acting as a domain), then parent_id must not specified (or if it is, it must be null) since domains have no parents.

parent_id is immutable, and can’t be updated after the project is created - hence a project cannot be moved within the hierarchy.

Create region

Creates a region.

When you create the region, you can optionally specify a region ID. If you include characters in the region ID that are not allowed in a URI, you must URL-encode the ID. If you omit an ID, the API assigns an ID to the region.

The following errors might occur:

  • Not Found (404). The parent region ID does not exist.
  • Conflict (409). The parent region ID would form a circular relationship.
  • Conflict (409). The user-defined region ID is not unique to the OpenStack deployment.

Roles

OpenStack services typically determine whether a user’s API request should be allowed using Role Based Access Control (RBAC). For OpenStack this means the service compares the roles that user has on the project (as indicated by the roles in the token), against the roles required for the API in question (as defined in the service’s policy file). A user obtains roles on a project by having these assigned to them via the Identity service API.

Roles must initially be created as entities via the Identity services API and, once created, can then be assigned. You can assign roles to a user or group on a project, including projects owned by other domains. You can also assign roles to a user or group on a domain, although this is only currently relevant for using a domain scoped token to execute domain-level Identity service API requests.

The creation, checking and deletion of role assignments is done with each of the attributes being specified in the URL. For example to assign a role to a user on a project:

PUT /v3/projects/{project_id}/users/{user_id}/roles/{role_id}

You can also list roles assigned to a specified domain, project, or user using this form of API, however a more generalized API for list assignments is provided where query parameters are used to filter the set of assignments returned in the collection. For example:

  • List role assignments for the specified user:

    GET /role_assignments?user.id={user_id}
    
  • List role assignments for the specified project:

    GET /role_assignments?scope.project.id={project_id}
    

Since Identity API v3.6, you can also list all role assignments within a tree of projects, for example the following would list all role assignments for a specified project and its sub-projects:

GET /role_assignments?scope.project.id={project_id}&include_subtree=true

If you specify include_subtree=true, you must also specify the scope.project.id. Otherwise, this call returns the Bad Request (400) response code.

Each role assignment entity in the collection contains a link to the assignment that created the entity.

As mentioned earlier, role assignments can be made to a user or a group on a particular project or domain. A user who is a member of a group that has a role assignment, will also be treated as having that role assignment by virtue of their group membership. The effective role assignments of a user (on a given project or domain) therefore consists of any direct assignments they have, plus any they gain by virtue of membership of groups that also have assignments on the given project or domain. This set of effective role assignments is what is placed in the token for reference by services wishing to check policy. You can list the effective role assignments using the effective query parameter at the user, project, and domain level:

  • Determine what a user can actually do:

    GET /role_assignments?user.id={user_id}&effective
    
  • Get the equivalent set of role assignments that are included in a project-scoped token response:

    GET /role_assignments?user.id={user_id}&scope.project.id={project_id}&effective
    

When listing in effective mode, since the group assignments have been effectively expanded out into assignments for each user, the group role assignment entities themselves are not returned in the collection. However, in the response, the links entity section for each assignment gained by virtue of group membership will contain a URL that enables access to the membership of the group.
