Note that this list includes service users too. You are not required to create new users, unless you want to give direct OpenStack API access to your clients.

Otherwise, Fleio will function normally through the administrative user configured in the installation step.

Creating a new user required an available OpenStack Project to associate the user with, it’s login name, a password and optionally a description as seen below. The role this user will receive is the default role provided in Fleio - OpenStack Settings - Defaults and is usually called _member_

Once a user is added, anyone having it’s username, password and project ID will be able to access OpenStack directly.
