  2. NOTE for Dataverse Installations running OpenStack Swift:

Now all Swift properties have been migrated to domain.xml, no longer needing to maintain a separate file, and offering better governability and performance. Furthermore, now the Swift credential's password is stored using create-password-alias, which encrypts the password so that it does not appear in plain text on domain.xml.
