#5735: Swift authentication fails for installations using "swauth"
    Reporter:  devcamcar  |      Owner:  dkocher
        Type:  defect     |     Status:  new
    Priority:  normal     |  Milestone:
   Component:  openstack  |    Version:  3.8.1
    Severity:  major      |   Keywords:  swift, swauth
Architecture:             |   Platform:
 Cyberduck is unable to authenticate users against a Swift installation
 when the installation is using "swauth", Swift's new authentication system
 introduced in the 1.2 release.

 There are instructions that describe how to work around the issue at

 "Context Path

 To change the context of the URL from the default /v1.0, use the  hidden
 configuration option defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck
 cf.authentication.context <string>."

 However, I was unable to make the authentication work using this method.
 Also, it is unclear if this affects Swift globally within Cyberduck,
 though I assume it does.

 So first issue is that I can't make it work by attempting to point it to
 /auth/v1.0 (which is what swauth wants).

 The second issue is that this should be a per connection configuration and
 should not be treated as a global setting, as this URL will vary from
 installation to installation.
