Identity Service API

This repository is now frozen-in-time and will not accept new patches.

It was the original holder for API information for the OpenStack Identity Service, also known as the Keystone project. The Keystone project provides authentication for OpenStack services, with plans to also provide authorization.

The Identity Service APIs are now included in the Keystone Specifications project. Available to view online at

Building v2.0 Docs

Build these docs using the same procedure as documented for the openstack-manuals project:

In short, with Maven 3:

cd openstack-identity-api/v2.0
mvn clean generate-sources

Building v3 Docs

The v3 docs require an extra proprocessing to convert the Markdown source into the DocBook format required by the Maven build process. A few extra tools are required for this preprocessing step.

Installing conversion tools on Ubuntu:

apt-get install pandoc xsltproc docbook5-xml

To build the docs:

cd openstack-identity-api/v3 ./ mvn clean generate-sources

Testing of changes and building of the manual

Install the python tox package and run tox from the top-level directory to use the same tests that are done as part of our Jenkins gating jobs.

If you like to run individual tests, run:

  • tox -e checkniceness - to run the niceness tests
  • tox -e checksyntax - to run syntax checks
  • tox -e checkdeletions - to check that no deleted files are referenced
  • tox -e checkbuild - to actually build the manual

tox will use the openstack-doc-tools package for execution of these tests. openstack-doc-tools has a requirement on maven for the build check.
