Adding to what Miguel said, I've merged a few months back a patch  which actually fixed the noauth feature in favour of the full-stack effort (the full-stack patches use neutronclient in noauth mode for easy access to neutron-server). We'll probably continue to use neutronclient until some other alternative is mature enough (for example, API testing providing thorough interface to neutron-server).
Needless to say that noauth is currently working just fine and if it were to stop working I'll be very sad ;-) : https://review.openstack.org/#/c/125022/ On 01/07/2015 11:44 AM, Miguel Ángel Ajo wrote: > Seems like a good reason to keep it, this allows us to test > internal integration in isolation from keystone. > > Miguel Ángel Ajo > > On Wednesday, 7 de January de 2015 at 10:05, Assaf Muller wrote: > >> >> >> ----- Original Message ----- >>> The option to disable keystone authentication in the neutron client was >>> marked for deprecation in August as part of a Keystone support >>> upgrade. >>> >>> What was the reason for this?
