Using third-party tools

HSwift is compatible with other OpenStack tools and the third-party tools such as CloudBerry and Cyberduck. These tools require some setup before you can use them.

This help section describes the information you need to set up third party-tools to work with HSwift.

General setup information for third-party tools

Typically, when configuring a third-party tool to work with HSwift, you need to provide this information:

  • Service point

    The fully qualified hostname of the tenant in the context of which you plan to create and manage containers and the object in them. For example, if the tenant name is europe and the HCP system domain name is, you specify the service point like this:
  • Access key

    The base64-encoded user name for the HCP user account you want to use for authenticated access to HCP.

  • Secret key

    The MD5-hashed password for the above HCP user account.
