You can update a project to change its name or description, and enable or temporarily disable it.

About this task


Disabling a project can have negative consequences. For example, if a user is assigned to only that project, they cannot log in to the VMware Integrated OpenStack dashboard. Similarly, the project is not accessible by its members. Project instances continue running, so you must suspend or stop them manually. Project data is retained in case the project is enabled again.


Verify that you are logged in to the VMware Integrated OpenStack dashboard as a cloud administrator.


  1. On the VMware Integrated OpenStack dashboard, select the admin project from the drop-down menu in the title bar.
  2. Select Admin > Identity > Projects.
  3. Select the project to edit.
  4. In the Actions column, select Edit Project from the drop-down menu.

    In the Edit Project dialog box, you can change the project's name and description, and enable and disable it.
