Managing a Project

Projects are used to group and isolate OpenStack resources, including computing, storage, and network resources. Resources in your account must be mounted under projects. A project can be a department or a project team. Access IAM with a security administrator to create projects in a region and perform isolated management of resources.

Procedure

  1. In the navigation pane, choose Projects.
  2. On the Projects page, click Create Project.
  3. On the Create Project page, select a region from the Region drop-down list.
  4. Set Project Name.

    NOTE:
    • The project name format is Region Name_Project Name. Region Name cannot be modified.
    • Only letters, digits, underscores (_), and hyphens (-) are allowed in the project name. The maximum length of Region Name_Project Name is 64 characters.

  5. (Optional) Set Description.
  6. Click OK.

    Return to the project list. Check that Status of the newly created project is displayed as Normal.
