Bug Description

In glance.conf.sample the comment for swift_store_user reads.

# User to authenticate against the Swift authentication service
swift_store_user = jdoe

When you actually need to prepend the account and a ':' to the username for Swift authentication to work (e.g. swift_store_user = accountname:jdoe)

The comment and the example value should reflect this.

Hmm, it actually depends on whether you are running swauth or some other auth service. But, that said, you are right that it could use some extra comments about "if you use swauth, you're swift_store_user should be "user:account""

That would be helpful. Ummmm....you meant "account:user" right?

It might also be worthwhile to mention that if you're using swauth then swift_store_auth_address will need auth in the URL and if you're using SSL then you'll need https. E.G.

swift_store_auth_address =
