Get your OpenRC file
In Horizon, click your username in the top right, and then click “OpenStack RC file”. Save this somewhere.
In a terminal, type:
source <path to your openrc file>
Your shell environment will now have all of the variables required for you to interact with the Swift CLI.
Defining environment variables using an environment file is not a common practice on Microsoft Windows. Environment variables are usually defined under Advanced > System Properties. One method for using these scripts as-is on Windows is to install Git for Windows and using Git Bash to source the environment variables and to run all CLI commands.
Install the OpenStack and Swift CLI
python3 -m pip install python-openstackclient python3 -m pip install python-swiftclient
openstack token issue swift auth
Both commands should return some basic info about your account with no errors.
openstack --help swift --help
