Hello Everyone!

I've installed OpenStack Mitaka using RDO. When I sign up with admin user, everything is working fine! However when signing up with a normal user and click on "containers" I get this error: Unable to get the Swift container listing.

Please find in the following link an image for the error:

Do anyone of you guys know why I'm getting this error? Thanks!!

What roles does the "normal" user have on the project? Look at operator_roles in the keystoneauth section of /etc/proxy-server.conf. Does your normal user have one of these roles? (if operator_roles is missing, this means it defaults to "admin" and "swiftoperator".)

You can fix this in two ways:

  • Add operator_roles to /etc/swift/proxy-server.conf with something such as (and restart Swift):

    operator_roles = admin,swiftoperator, __ member __

    (this assumes your normal user has __ member __ role on the project)

    Note: the underscore charater becomes markup here, so __ member __ is actually one word with underscore, followed by "member" followed by underscore.

  • Or, add "swiftoperator" role to your normal user
