Swauth

An Auth Service for Swift as WSGI Middleware that uses Swift itself as a backing store. Sphinx-built docs at: http://gholt.github.com/swauth/

See also https://github.com/openstack/keystone for the standard OpenStack auth service.

NOTE

Be sure to review the Sphinx-built docs at: http://gholt.github.com/swauth/

Quick Install

1) Install Swauth with sudo python setup.py install or sudo python setup.py develop or via whatever packaging system you may be using.

2) Alter your proxy-server.conf pipeline to have swauth instead of tempauth:

Was:

    [pipeline:main]
    pipeline = catch_errors cache tempauth proxy-server

Change To:

    [pipeline:main]
    pipeline = catch_errors cache swauth proxy-server

3) Add to your proxy-server.conf the section for the Swauth WSGI filter:

[filter:swauth]
use = egg:swauth#swauth
set log_name = swauth
super_admin_key = swauthkey

4) Be sure your proxy server allows account management:

[app:proxy-server]
...
allow_account_management = true

5) Restart your proxy server swift-init proxy reload

6) Initialize the Swauth backing store in Swift swauth-prep -K swauthkey

7) Add an account/user swauth-add-user -A http://127.0.0.1:8080/auth/ -K swauthkey -a test tester testing

8) Ensure it works swift -A http://127.0.0.1:8080/auth/v1.0 -U test:tester -K testing stat -v

Web Admin Install

1) If you installed from packages, you'll need to cd to the webadmin directory the package installed. This is /usr/share/doc/python-swauth/webadmin with the Lucid packages. If you installed from source, you'll need to cd to the webadmin directory in the source directory.

2) Upload the Web Admin files with swift -A http://127.0.0.1:8080/auth/v1.0 -U .super_admin:.super_admin -K swauthkey upload .webadmin .

3) Open http://127.0.0.1:8080/auth/ in your browser.
