Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add cloud instance to cloudforms without admin user present in any of the tenants

Max, this is actually a requirement for now that the OpenStack API user credentials used by CFME must be added to all of the tenants from which you want to collect data.
Loic, I believe you've double checked with the core OSP engineers and they have validated that this is required, correct?

There are 2 things here: By design, admin user (if used to connect from CloudForms to OpenStack) then it must be part of any tenant we want to see from CloudForms, this is by design, tenant are like fences...
In 5.4, I did experience this issue when you have a tenant where admin is not a member then refresh fails. I did the same test with 5.5 and was not failing, we simply don't see the tenant...
I do not think this is a bug. But I will capture this one part of Tenant Mapping and Impersonation trellos because we should improve it.
Based on feedback from Loic, closing this as not a bug.
