I think this should be a 2.0 blocker. We need to handle these ints internally and accept both string/int fields here.

 don't think this is actually a bug, at least a bug of rackspace provider. Here you can see, that in the configuration file the field that expects string (tenant-name) is initialized with integer value. And this is exactly what error says

  Error details:
  tenant-name: expected string, got int(58xxxx)

I see 3 possible solutions:
1. Don't do anything, just tell user to put his tenant name in quotes.
2. Inside rackspace provider try to cast tenant name to string, if it is initialized with integer value. This is a kind of a hack, because it will not solve the general issue. If user, for example, will have password that consist only from digits and don't put it inside quotes - he will get exactly the same error.
3. Try to solve this issue in general, and for all fields, that expect string values also accept integer values.

I actually do not think that we can do anything here except to advise that this property needs to be quoted.
Just as we'd advise to have an empty password string specified as "" rather than .
