How to create and configure new project in OpenStack?

Let's start with choosing Identity -> Projects menu on the left side of the screen.

Click on "Create Project" button.

You will be asked for a name (obligatory) and description for the new project. Leave checkbox "Enable" ticked if you want your project to become active.

Next, switch on the "Project Members" tab.

You can add to project users from the user list by clicking the "+" icon. Next, it is possible to grant privileges for all members in the project by selecting the proper role from drop-down menu. (Please note that "heat_stack_user", "cf_associate" and "admin" ARE STRONGLY NOT RECOMMENDED)

The last tab allows us to add whole groups of users with the same privileges. Currently adding new users to a group is not supported by Horizon.

To finish the setup of the new project, click on the blue "Create Project" button.

If you set the configuration properly, the new project should appear on the list.

Now, using the drop-down menu, you can modify groups (the last tab from setup), edit project (whole setup process will appear again), delete the project, and set your project as active.

When you choose the last option, your recent project will be changed to the current one. You will see it at the bar on the top of the page.

If you want to check your project ID, just open Project -> API Access menu, and click on "View Credentials"
