OpenStack service and project names

Use uppercase when you refer to a service name. For example, use Compute service, Image service, or Identity service instead of nova, glance, or keystone.

Use lowercase when you refer to:

  • project names

  • project team names

  • command-line interface (CLI)

For more information, see Service and Project Naming in OpenStack Technical Committee governance documents.

The official source for services and project names is in the projects.yaml file in the openstack/governance repository.
