Cyberduck Help / Howto / Swift (OpenStack Object Storage)

Connect to a Swift (OpenStack Object Storage) installation. Choose Swift (OpenStack Object Storage) from the list of protocols.



On your first login, you will need to create at least one container (folder) to put your content in. Choose File → New Folder (⌘-N) and specify a name. After the container has been created, you may start adding your content to the storage platform.

Authentication Context Path

Authentication with devauth

No configuration change is needed.

Authentication with keystone

No configuration change is needed.

Authentication with swauth

To change the context of the URL from the default /v1.0, use the hidden configuration option defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck cf.authentication.context <string>.

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck cf.authentication.context /auth/v1.0

Connect without SSL

You need the latest snapshot build.

If you have a Swift installation without SSL configured, you download the unsecure connection profile to connect using HTTP only without transport layer security. You will then have the added option Swift (HTTP) in the protocol dropdown selection in the Connection and Bookmark panels.

Distribution (CDN)

You can enable Amazon CloudFront (Content Delivery Network) distribution using File → Info → Distribution (CDN).


Please report any incompatibilities you encounter and provide feedback if you have a Swift installation.
