[Openstack] Mapping - keystone to Swift

Is there any documentation about what is the mapping between keystone constructs and Swift constructs?

Keystone has tenants, users, roles and Swift has accounts.

Tenants map 1-1 to Swift accounts, and users within a tenant(or account) can access each others objects and containers if they are admin(role). What does a user map to in Swift though, or is it just used within Keystone, for local or say, AD users? Also, does a role map to anything within Swift? It is a bit confusing, because Swift requires admin access to create objects, is that only specific to keystone as an auth. Some clarity around this would really help.
