[Bug 983734] Re: Keystone fails badly if you miss one option


The problem here is really that keystone puts required default values in
the config file and not in the code

My cfg re-factoring patches fixed this e.g. in
I register a default in the code for template_file. Since we're likely
not going ahead with those patches, I can pull out the defaults cleanups

If the service can't start without a value for the config, then the
option is essentially required. The user must specify a value. I don't
think any of keystone options fall into that category, but I've added a
blueprint for required options in cfg: https://blueprints.launchpad.net

Bug description:
  If you misspell or forget one option in keystone.conf (like
  template_file  for TemplatedCatalog backend), Keystone will fail with
  misguiding critical failure (in my case, "TypeError: coercing to
  Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found").
