Big +1 for that which makes pre-provisioned cred testing more thoroughly. And at the end we should divide the existing jobs among dynamic and pre-provisioned account so that we would not leave any of them less tested.

Full Text: Tempest provides tests with two mechanisms to acquire test credentials : dynamic credentials and pre-provisioned ones. The current check and gate jobs only use the dynamic credentials provider. The pre-provisioned credentials provider has been introduced to support running test in parallel without the need of having access to admin credentials in tempest configuration file - which is a valid use case especially when testing public clouds or in general a deployment that is not own by who runs the test. As a small extra, since pre-provisioned credentials are re-used to run many tests during a CI test run, they give an opportunity to discover issues related to cleanup of test resources. Pre-provisioned credentials is currently used in periodic jobs  - as well as an experimental job defined for tempest changes. This means that even if we are careful, there is a good chance for it to be inadvertently broken by a change. Until recently the periodic job suffered a racy failure on object-storage tests. A recent refactor  of the tool that pre-proprovisioned the accounts has fixed the issue: the past 8 runs of the periodic jobs have not encountered that race anymore . Specifically I'd like to propose changing to start changing of the neutron jobs .
