Creating Projects in OpenStack for Configuring Tenants in Contrail

In Contrail, a tenant configuration is called a project. A project is created for each set of virtual machines (VMs) and virtual networks (VNs) that are configured as a discrete entity for the tenant.

Projects are created, managed, and edited at the OpenStack Projects page.

  1. Click the Admin tab on the OpenStack dashboard, then click the Projects link to access the Projects page; see Figure 1.

  3. In the Add Project window, on the Project Info tab, enter a Name and a Description for the new project, and select the Enabled check box to activate this project.
  4. In the Add Project window, select the Project Members tab, and assign users to this project. Designate each user as admin or as Member.

    As a general rule, one person should be a super user in the admin role for all projects and a user with a Member role should be used for general configuration purposes.

  5. Click Finish to create the project.

Refer to OpenStack documentation for more information about creating and managing projects.
