To use Ceph object storage with the Swift API, we need the Swift subuser and secret keys that we created earlier in this chapter. This user information will then be passed using the Swift CLI tool in order to access the Ceph object storage:
- On the client-node1, a virtual machine installs the Python Swift client:
# easy_install pip # pip install --upgrade setuptools # pip install --upgrade python-swiftclient
- Get the swift subuser and secret keys from the RGW node:
# radosgw-admin user info --uid pratima -k /var/lib/ceph/radosgw/ceph-rgw.rgw-node1/keyring --name client.rgw.rgw-node1
- Access Ceph object storage by listing the default bucket:
