Using the Object Store on Jetstream2¶
The object store is only available via Horizon and the CLI presently.
The Jetstream2 object store utilizes Openstack Swift and is S3 compatible. You can utilize it via Horizon or the command line interface (CLI). From the CLI, you can use the python-swiftclient, the AWS CLI’s
s3api, or other compatible tools.
Trying the object store from the CLI using Swift¶
To use the OpenStack CLI natively with the object store, you’ll need the Swift client if you have not already installed it. You can install it by doing:
pip install python-swiftclient
Once you have the Swift client installed, you can test it by doing:
swift post my-unique-bucket-name
which will create a storage container called “my-unique-bucket-name”. You can then list your buckets by doing:
If you want to delete the test bucket, you can do:
swift delete my-unique-bucket-name
As with all Openstack clients, you can see the full list of commands with
You can also add, remove, and otherwise work with swift containers (buckets in the S3 vernacular) in Horizon on the Project → Object Store → Containers tab.
