Hi friends,

I am having bad time configuring glance to use swift as backend. I researched many places about that topic but none of them seems to be updated and functional for my running version (train). I tried all configurations I found and none of them seem to work.

With my last configuration, when I try to create an image I receive the error:

HTTP 410 Gone: Error in store configuration. Adding images to store is disabled.

I do not know what is the problem exactly but I attached my configuration file in the hope someone can help me to understand the problem.

This is the glance-api.log file: (

This is the glance-api.conf: (

Thank you very much.

It looks like I found the solution to my problem. I think the problem was the the SSL configurations in the sections:

swift_store_use_trusts = True

swift_store_auth_insecure = True

swift_store_cacert = /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

swift_store_ssl_compression = False

I only removed these section and the service started to work.

My [back0] section is like this now:


auth_version = 3

auth_address = http://controller:5000/v3

key = Abcd1234

user = service:glance

swift_store_admin_tenants = [admin]

swift_store_region = RegionOne

swift_store_container = glance

swift_store_expire_soon_interval = 60

swift_store_large_object_size = 5120

swift_store_large_object_chunk_size = 200

swift_store_create_container_on_put =True

swift_store_retry_get_count = 10

swift_store_multi_tenant = True

Obs: I removed the sections bellow because it were causing the container created to be empty:

swift_buffer_on_upload = True

swift_upload_buffer_dir = /tmp/

I post my results here in hope can help other people.

Thank you very much.
