Python code debug using rpdb (Keystone source code debugging)

Install rpdb first for debugging keystone python application
$sudo pip install –proxy=$http_proxy rpdb

Go to keystone source repository

# Go into python file where you want to place the rpdb debugging
 def check_policy_association_for_endpoint(self, context, policy_id, endpoint_id):
 import rpdb; rpdb.set_trace()
After adding rpdb in the source code now just build and install the code

 ~\keystone$ python setup.py build -v
 ~\keystone$ python setup.py install -v

Restart apache tomcat server
$ sudo service apache2 restart

Issue openstack cli or curl command (above debug starts for below curl operation)
 $ curl -s -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "X-Auth-Token: 43c976f2941f4ca8a41444707ae6596c" http://localhost:35357/v3/policies/66cdadcc1cda4b768668b1013227e8a3/OS-ENDPOINT-POLICY/endpoints/2fbb8d23ccf74a1e86e491fd6151bcc5
