Ceph - Unable to set a per user or group ACL in Ceph / RadosGW when using Keystone

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When setting a Ceph Container Storage ACL and using the OpenStack ACL rules syntax, we found that ACLs involving groups or users are not accepted nor effective.

  • The only accepted ACLs are the default *:* and .r:*. Everything else fails.
