I can´t find swauth-prep or any other command like swauth-add-user in my Operating System. I have installed swift packet from ppa repository and I have followed on line documentation to configure the cluster, but when I try to add users, all I get is: The program 'swauth-prep' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: apt-get install swift But swift is already installed!!!

I typed that too:

root@last-ph3-v15:~# updatedb root@last-ph3-v15:~# locate swauth /usr/share/man/man8/swauth-add-account.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/swauth-add-user.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/swauth-cleanup-tokens.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/swauth-delete-account.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/swauth-delete-user.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/swauth-list.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/swauth-prep.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/swauth-set-account-service.8.gz

Thanks a lot

The swauth authentication system is no longer in swift core. It's now its own project and so is slogging.

If you are using swift 1.4.3, please check on the sites below for information on swauth and slogging ( (
