No, I don't think that's the case. The tempest auth code handles token
expiration and prempts it. See:




depending on which keystone api version is being used. These get called before
each outgoing http call from tempest is made and if it's expired it'll get a
new token. There could be a bug in that code, but I think it is probably
something else.

I think the issue here is probably caused by the token that glance is using is
expiring because the upload takes too long and it doesn't know how to handle
that. (unless I'm misreading Jay's comment) So things fail when it tries to use
the same token for another operation which is part of the same api request after
the upload is finished. This is the topic of that thread which Sean pointed out
