swift and keystone backup

I used keystone as my authentication node for an OpenStack Swift Cluster. In case my keystone node fails, I would like to re-install keystone from scratch, what should I recover from my backup? Or what should I back up so that after I re-install keystone from scratch, I can still have a working Swift Cluster?

I knows that Swift relies on "Account" or ( "tenant" according to Keystone ) to work. Swift needs AUTH_"ACCOUNT_ID" to get the hash for an account, container, and objects etc. So my minimal back are only the ids for each account in terms of swift (tenant in terms of keystone), I don't need to back any other on keystone node to make my swift work again, is that right?

If you have to use only Swift+Keystone then you only need to create tenant, user, role, URL associated with the Swift service.
