As per my analysis with Openstack and AD integration there are two ways of integrating as suggested on this question about Swift and I haven't managed to successfully integrate AD with my OpenStack installation.

The suggestions for Swift are:

1) If your existing system is using LDAP or Active Directory, consider using the OpenStack Identity service backing on to this - it integrates well with swift.

2) If you have a 'special' system that has its own API, you can write a small module to put in the swift pipeline to handle the authorization decisions. You can find an example of how to develop a module in the OpenStack Operations Guide "Customize" chapter ()

I was trying for first option for last 4 days because there two type of attributes for tenant specially used for the integration with as keystone back end which are as follows:

a) AD tenant object creation with Class Organizationunit and change the Keystone .conf
