There're two kinds of authorizing in swift. One is tempauth, another is keystone. I think you used tempauth, because you mentioned "which is setup in one of the configuration " In tempauth, the account could not be modified in runtime. The only way to modify an account is change that configuration, which is proxy-server.conf.

There's a document to understanding of that. (
