Bug Description

NovaKeystoneContext provides project_name as part of request context, however CinderKeystoneContext does not provide it. Its trivial to add but it makes developers to completely replace the original CinderKeystoneContext with a patched or modified class.

Its will be great to have project name available in CinderKeystoneContext as its available through NovaKeystoneContext. To do this just "project_name = req.headers.get('X_TENANT_NAME')" needs to be added to __call__ method.

Harry, is there any other reason why we need to put it in CinderKeystoneContext besides NovaKeystoneContext has it? Anything more about it?

Vincent, I am openstack developer and implementing a custom solution for my company.

NovaKeystoneContext provides me this tenant_name in the context which made my life easy but in Cinder I have to explicitly make a call to Keystone to fetch tenant_name from tenant_id. This parameter is available in auth response in CinderKeystoneContext however is ignored while making request context. Given the nature of openstack development, I am reluctant to fork my own copy of cinder and add few lines required to read tenant_name. I am forced to implement a workaround by explicitly calling keystone again in my cinder api plugin. I think having some of the core identity information available to all the request contexts will make life easier for everyone and bring a consistency into all the openstack API components.

We are using tenant_name / project_name as a login identity across all other systems. It was not possible for tenant_id since user can not remember or type such long string. So to link openstack components with other third party systems, tenant_name is the only option and having it available across all the request contexts will avoid ugly workarounds.
