OpenStack can export a configuration file called clouds.yaml. How do I export this file from the Horizon's interface?

Follow these steps,

  1. Log into Horizons
  2. On the left bar click Identity.
  3. Under Identity, click Application Credentials.
  4. Click the + Create Application Credentials button at the top
  5. You must at least give a name.
  6. Click "Create Application Credential" at the bottom of the page.
  7. Click Download clouds.yaml

And you'll typically want to put this file either,

  • $HOME/.config/openstack/clouds.yaml
  • /etc/openstack/clouds.yaml
