Hi All,

Has anybody managed to configure glance to use swift?

I've created a glance account and user on swift and can upload files:

>swift list -A -U glance:glance -K glance glance_bucket


Now, I'm truing to update glance config, /etc/glance/glance-api.conf

default_store = swift
swift_store_auth_address =
swift_store_user = glance
swift_store_container = glance_bucket

and restart glance, but when I upload images into nova they are ending up in local filesystem /var/lib/glance/images instead of in swift.

Any help appreciated.

Kind Regards
