25.8. Working with the Object Store

For more information on Swift operations, see OpenStack Object Storage API Reference Guide available at http://docs.openstack.org/api/openstack-object-storage/1.0/content/ .

25.8.1. Creating Containers and Objects

Creating container and objects in Red Hat Gluster Storage Object Store is very similar to OpenStack swift. For more information on Swift operations, see OpenStack Object Storage API Reference Guide available at http://docs.openstack.org/api/openstack-object-storage/1.0/content/.

25.8.2. Creating Subdirectory under Containers

You can create a subdirectory object under a container using the headers Content-Type: application/directory and Content-Length: 0. However, the current behavior of Object Store returns 200 OK on a GET request on subdirectory but this does not list all the objects under that subdirectory.

25.8.3. Working with Swift ACLs

Swift ACLs work with users and accounts. ACLs are set at the container level and support lists for read and write access. For more information on Swift ACLs, see http://docs.openstack.org/user-guide/content/managing-openstack-object-storage-with-swift-cli.html.
