Hello, I am trying to deploy the swift in our CDN for the internal usage and the authentication system we use is the tempauth. Is there any way to to add more new users without interrupting the swift. I think i got to restart the whole swift if i add new users to the tempauth filter. How to eliminate this issue. I felt tempauth is not much complicated as compared to swauth and tempauth. As i am preferring to use swift,i hope i wont have any much serious issues with the tempauth.Kindly help.

You are correct; adding users to tempauth requires a restart of the proxy server.

If you require the ability to modify the user list without restarting the proxy server, you'll need to use a different auth system.

well,i think its a good idea to deploy two proxy servers for a single swift cluster and add users one after the other. Thanks for the info torgomatic.
