Just install the official OpenStackClient from PyPi:

pip install python-openstackclient python-barbicanclient python-cinderclient python-designateclient python-glanceclient python-heatclient python-neutronclient python-novaclient python-octaviaclient python-magnumclient python-heatclient gnocchiclient

Requires: Python >=3.8

Load the Openstack Enviornment File

  • download the generic file for NWS-ID or
  • download the direct access template under 'Get Started' in your Openstack project in the Customer Interface

Now you can source the environment file. After entering the password you can send requests to the OpenStack-CLI.

$ source
$ openstack server list
