Description Ade Lee 2018-04-12 21:09:51 UTC
Description of problem:

The creator role is required for users to store secrets in Barbican.  See 


It would be better to create this role and associate users with this role by default.  

In addition, it may be possible to retrofit existing users with this role.

Cinder provides a mechanism for migrating encryption keys creating using the legacy ConfKeyManager to Barbican. In order to do that, the cinder service itself needs the creator role. If that role will be automatically added to users then it would be helpful if it could also be added to cinder's service user.

Comment 11 Nathan Kinder 2019-01-08 18:12:57 UTC
After some discussion, we believe the proper thing to do is to define the creator role by default for a TripleO deployment with Barbican, but we don't want to automatically assume that users should get the "creator" role.  The assignment of this role should be left up to the operator, but we need to at least create the role within keystone at deployment time.  This should be considered a usability bug as opposed to a RFE.
