What/where is the Swift API key? Is it generated somewhere in the the installation of keystone & swift (kilo build)? I need to use it to authenticate another application to swift, but I have no idea what or where it is. Rackspace and SwiftStack have nice little buttons in there UIs to generate an API Key. Is there an openstack command in the CLI to generate an API key? I tried making a token using openstack, but that was not accepted.

Thank you sunnyarora, but that link is about configuring OwnCloud (not CommVault) with an Openstack Swift backend. It does not require the API key (which is provided by Rackspace, or also possibly by SwiftStack). It does not explain how to generate this mystical API Key from Swift or Keystone.
