Cinder Server side API setup

The changes in the cinder.conf on your cinder-api node are minimal, just set authstrategy to noauth:

auth_strategy = noauth

Using cinderclient

To use the cinderclient you’ll need to set the following env variables:


Note that you can have multiple projects, however we don’t currently do any sort of authentication of ownership because, well that’s the whole point, it’s noauth.

Each of these options can also be specified on the cmd line:

cinder --os-auth-type=noauth \
--os-endpoint=http://<cinder-api-url>:8776/v3 \
--os-project-id=admin \
--os-volume-api-version=3.10 list
