keystoneauth1.noauth module

class keystoneauth1.noauth.NoAuth(endpoint=None)

Bases: keystoneauth1.plugin.FixedEndpointPlugin

A provider that will always use no auth.

This is useful to unify session/adapter loading for services that might be deployed in standalone/noauth mode.

get_token(session, **kwargs)

Obtain a token.

How the token is obtained is up to the plugin. If it is still valid it may be re-used, retrieved from cache or invoke an authentication request against a server.

There are no required kwargs. They are passed directly to the auth plugin and they are implementation specific.

Returning None will indicate that no token was able to be retrieved.

This function is misplaced as it should only be required for auth plugins that use the ‘X-Auth-Token’ header. However due to the way plugins evolved this method is required and often called to trigger an authentication request on a new plugin.

When implementing a new plugin it is advised that you implement this method, however if you don’t require the ‘X-Auth-Token’ header override the get_headers method instead.


session (keystoneauth1.session.Session) – A session object so the plugin can make HTTP calls.


A token to use.
