#5879 closed defect (duplicate)

Authentication URL not configurable

I am trying to test cyberduck against my OpenStack Swift instance. The authentication URL for it looks like When I am creating a new connection the auth URL appears as expected but login always fails. This happens because cyberduck always uses URL for authentication, no matter what I typed in the connection creation dialog.

You can change the context path using a hidden configuration option.

Duplicate for #5735. Do you have any information how swauth differs from standard authentication and why a different context path is needed at all?

My Swift instance uses neither swauth nor devauth (aka standard authentication). It is using external auth service which is also used by other services for some time already. Now I need to integrate Swift so have to use existing URL.

Do not you found it a bit strange to require user to play with hidden variables instead of specifying the URL in the dialog?

  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

The need to tinker with hidden preferences is indeed not desirable. As documented, you can change the context path for the authentication. but if you need to use a different hostname you possibly have to redirect on the server. I have not tested if that works.~

The host to use for authentication is what you define as the hostname to connect to in the bookmark setting if you have selected Swift (OpenStack Object Storage) with the context path appended. The storage URL is returned from the server upon successful authentication.
