How to create key-pair in OpensStack dashboard?

Open Compute -> Key Pairs


Click Create Key Pair and insert the name of the key (eg. "ssh-key")


After generating Key Pair your new Private Key will appear. Click Copy Private Key to Clipboard.


Open a Text Editor (e.g. Gedit) and paste there your key.



Save the key as "id_rsa"  in the folder of your choice (in linux the keys are usually kept in ~./ssh folder).

In case of linux you should change the permissions on the private key:

chmod 600 id_rsa



Click key name in Key Pairs menu and read your public key. You can also save the key to a file like the private key. For example named "id_rsa.pub".
