This section describes how to install and configure the dashboard on the controller node.
The only core service required by the dashboard is the Identity service. You can use the dashboard in combination with other services, such as Image service, Compute, and Networking. You can also use the dashboard in environments with stand-alone services such as Object Storage.
This section assumes proper installation, configuration, and operation of the Identity service using the Apache HTTP server and Memcached service.
Install the packages:
# zypper install openstack-dashboard
Configure the web server:
# cp /etc/apache2/conf.d/openstack-dashboard.conf.sample \ /etc/apache2/conf.d/openstack-dashboard.conf # a2enmod rewrite
/srv/www/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py file and complete the following actions:
Configure the dashboard to use OpenStack services on the
Allow your hosts to access the dashboard:

Enable the Identity API version 3:
Enable support for domains:
Configure API versions:
Default as the default domain for users that you create via the dashboard:
user as the default role for users that you create via the dashboard:
If you chose networking option 1, disable support for layer-3 networking services:
Optionally, configure the time zone:
TIME_ZONE with an appropriate time zone identifier. For more information, see the list of time zones.
Restart the web server and session storage service:
# systemctl restart apache2.service memcached.service
systemctl restart command starts each service if not currently running.
