Bug Description

Creation of the Placement user and their permissions as well as endpoints are not in this Stein documentation. This creates errors. I ask you to add in the documentation.

tags: added: placement

I understand, it's separate from the documentation so I did not find it. I installed separate placement and it worked in my environment. Thank you in advance for the return.

In the stein's own documentation. but I noticed you have a link well below
the placement section.

OK so I think what you're asking for is within the nova install docs, in the section that talks about configuring nova for placement, link to the placement install docs, is that correct?

Looking at https://docs.openstack.org/nova/stein/install/controller-install-ubuntu.html it's also talking about configuring nova for glance and neutron. In the glance section, it doesn't reference the separate glance docs, but the neutron section does:

"Configure the [neutron] section of /etc/nova/nova.conf. Refer to the Networking service install guide for more information."

So I think you're just asking that the nova install guide link to the placement install guide similar to how the nova install guide links to the neutron install guide, correct?

Changed in nova:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Medium
tags: added: low-hanging-fruit
summary: - placement user
+ Nova install guide should refer to placement install guide as a pre-req
+ when configuring nova to use placement

Hi everyone!

I would like to take this issue and try to solve it. This will be my first contribution to a launchpad repository, so I might take longer than usual to solve it.
