Upload Through OpenStack Swift API

You can manage your CDN Storage container through Swift API. You can list all containers in your account, list all the objects in a container, upload, download, and delete resources. 

First, you need to obtain the “StorageURL” and the “Auth Token” for your account by using the following command: 

swift stat --verbose --os-username YOUR_USERNAME --os-tenant-name YOUR_TENANT --os-password YOUR_PASSWORD --os-auth-url 


swift stat --verbose --os-username 1011131 --os-tenant-name 1011131 --os-password AHzfgGAkNGCoCpeW --os-auth-url https://auth.files.us01.cloud.servers.com:5000/v2.0/

Example output:

StorageURL: https://storage.files.us01.cloud.servers.com:8080/v1/SERVERSCOM_50d9a8b35b5a4bb4a80957fb52ab363c

Is the first part is your Openstack Swift username (–os-username) and the second part is your Openstack Swift tenant-name (–os-tenant-name) (e.g 1011131.1011131). 

Due to the requirements of the Object Storage service (swift) architecture, your FTP username contains two authentication parts separated by dot (.) character. 

In the provided example the Openstack Swift username (–os-username) is 1011131


Is the second part of your FTP username is (–os-tenant-name). 

In the provided example the Openstack Swift tenant-name (–os-tenant-name) is 1011131


Is the FTP password, which can be obtained through the Universal CDN Control Panel. 


Is the Swift authorization URL. 

Below are the authorization URLs that should be used: 

https://auth.files.nl01.cloud.servers.com:5000/v2.0/ – to connect to your Europe container. 

https://auth.files.us01.cloud.servers.com:5000/v2.0/ – to connect to your North American container.

Managing Universal CDN Storage with OpenStack Swift API using cURL. 

It is a well known command-line tool for transferring data to and from a server. Please review the following examples of some of the allowed operations that can be done with the OpenStack Swift API using cURL:

List all containers in an account:

$ curl -X GET -H 'X-Auth-Token: 691632df959349298de14769e01aee99' https://storage.files.us01.cloud.servers.com:8080/v1/SERVERSCOM_31c646340f83401ebc46e770e0cd669f/

List all the objects in a container:  

$ curl -X GET -H 'X-Auth-Token: 691632df959349298de14769e01aee99' https://storage.files.us01.cloud.servers.com:8080/v1/SERVERSCOM_31c646340f83401ebc46e770e0cd669f/container_name

Upload an object:

curl -X PUT -H 'X-Auth-Token: 691632df959349298de14769e01aee99' https://storage.files.us01.cloud.servers.com:8080/v1/SERVERSCOM_31c646340f83401ebc46e770e0cd669f/container_name/ -T test_file.mp4

Download an object:

curl -X GET -H 'X-Auth-Token: 691632df959349298de14769e01aee99' https://storage.files.us01.cloud.servers.com:8080/v1/SERVERSCOM_31c646340f83401ebc46e770e0cd669f/container_name/test_file.mp4 --output test_file.mp4

Delete an object: 

curl -X DELETE -H 'X-Auth-Token: 691632df959349298de14769e01aee99' https://storage.files.us01.cloud.servers.com:8080/v1/SERVERSCOM_31c646340f83401ebc46e770e0cd669f/container_name/test_file.mp4

Please note that the storage containers must be created only from the Universal CDN Control Panel. Storage containers created not from the Control Panel will be rejected by the CDN system.
