Swift API

OpenStack Swift (not to be confused with the programming language of the same name) is an object-access API similar to, but distinct from, the S3 object storage API.

In Cleura Cloud, you interact with the Swift API using either the swift command-line interface (CLI), or the standard openstack CLI.

Either way, in addition to installing and configuring the Python openstackclient module, you need to install the Python swiftclient module. Use either the package manager of your operating system, or pip:

apt install python3-swiftclient

This Python module is unavailable via brew, but you can install it via pip.

pip install python-swiftclient


The OpenStack Swift API is available in select Cleura Cloud regions. Refer to the feature support matrix for details on Swift API availability.
