Re: Nova API to get VMs belonging to other users / tenants


Hi Brent and All,

I have assigned the user with administrative role in keystone.

When I use the nova-api for getting the server details passing the X-Auth-Token, I am unable to see the VMs belonging to other users / tenants. Can somebody guide me where I am going wrong?

No - you need a token with admin creds for that (user must have admin role in keystone).
Once you have the correct creds, you can use the nova cli:

nova list  --all-tenants

If you wanted to see how this looks in the raw API, just pass the debug flag in the cli and it will show you the correct post.

Hallo All,

Is it possible using the Nova API for a normal user / tenant to get all VMs belonging to other users / tenants?

If yes, can I get to know how to achieve this?
