When using the anynines Swift service with an application, it might be handy to browse the anynines Swift storage with a GUI client.
The program Cyberduck is such a great GUI client that can be used as OpenStack Swift browser to transfer files to/from your anynines Swift service.
The first step is to collect the Swift credentials bound to your app. The credentials get exposed through environment variables to your app. You can list the app's environment variables using the cf command:
cf env APP_NAME
The output will contain the Swift credentials if an anynines Swift service is bound to the application.
Here's a sample output:
You need the attribute values tenant_id, user_name and password when configuring Cyberduck.
Connect with Cyberduck
Start Cyberduck, open a new connection and select the Swift (OpenStack Object Storage) profile.
Next fill in auth.hydranodes.de as the Server, 5000 as the server Port.
Username is made up of tenant_id and user_name, separated by a colon.
Fill in the password from above.
Finally you can connect to the anynines Swift service and browse your data.
