We're seeing this problem over and over again, reported via the doc comments at

I've not been able to troubleshoot it but wanted to see if this is a known issue (or a known problem with swift client?)

Thanks, Anne

They installed the Essex release combo using the guide. I think the sample proxy-server.conf has

allow_account_management = true

missing. Argh.

Thanks for taking a look - made me compare more closely to Devstack.

Those bug reports are tremendously incomplete... we just did a revamp of the swift object/container code in Horizon about two weeks ago (looks like after those reports), but I can say that at least for me, running Horizon against Swift installed via devstack, container creation, object upload, etc. all worked correctly. The new code has been vetted by several Horizon developers.

The main question I would have is how did they install swift? It's certainly quite easy to misconfigure it if they didn't use a known-good configuration like devstack.
