openstack swift login claims the identity server did not return a token

I purchased Filezilla Pro so I could test out connectivity to our Openstack Swift storage ( we host three clusters around the world for our end users). I immediately run into an issue. We use Openstack Swift with the keystone identity service, with v2.0 being our standard identity protocol.

When I entered my project (aka tenent) and username and then hit connect, I got the following output:

00:47:35 Error: Identity service did not return an auth token

If I typo the API KEY ( aka password) , I get 401. With all correct details, I get 200 OK as above, but it claims not to have a token, but it is returned. I've used Wireshark with the SSL decryption to confirm this.

The following JSON response was sent to Filezilla (I have changed the values but none of the keys ):

{"access": {"token": {"issued_at": "2018-11-20T08:28:45.000000Z", "expires": "2018-11-20T09:28:45.000000Z", "id": “blahbljbkgjbaekjrbgklaebgkjebgkjerbgejrkbgjkebgejkbg", "tenant": {"description": null, "enabled": true, "id": "6a4d4ca0536240a1b982391c88f0ec68", "name": “example"}, "audit_ids": [“Yrad3a_yx1e3l34"]}, "serviceCatalog": [{"endpoints": [{"adminURL": "", "region": "LAX", "internalURL": "", "id": "ccb6cd9aba0f452db42b3d4f4a2c049e", "publicURL": ""}], "endpoints_links": [], "type": "object-store", "name": "swift"}, {"endpoints": [{"adminURL": "", "region": "LAX", "internalURL": "", "id": "4213934b23294a96b2b8c553dcf00551", "publicURL": ""}], "endpoints_links": [], "type": "identity", "name": "keystone"}], "user": {"username": “david", "roles_links": [], "id": "4fae2db21d492881a68e4fe", "roles": [{"name": "_member_"}, {"name": "SwiftOperator"}], "name": “david"}, "metadata": {"is_admin": 0, "roles": ["9fe2ff9ee4384b1894a90878", "f3cdc7048c9945c56e108372"]}}}

'access' => 'tokens' => 'id' is the path to the valid token that would be accepted by swift for future requests ( as X-Auth-Token).

It's not a valid JSON document. There's “ (LEFT DOUBLE QUOTATION MARK, U+201C) in a couple of places instead of " (QUOTATION MARK, U+22)

Does the server send malformed JSON or did this happen while editing the document?

The invalid characters in the copy paste must have come from the editor I used to redact it. I've taken the JSON from wireshark again and have pasted it below in a 'code' block and have also put it in pastebin with the link below also.

{"access": {"token": {"issued_at": "2018-11-20T08:28:45.000000Z", "expires": "2018-11-20T09:28:45.000000Z", "id": "abcdefghijklmnopqvwxyz1234567890", "tenant": {"description": null, "enabled": true, "id": "0536240a1b982391c88f0ec68", "name": "example"}, "audit_ids": ["mP61Us8wThK2B-JoEpTWIg"]}, "serviceCatalog": [{"endpoints": [{"adminURL": "", "region": "LAX", "internalURL": "", "id": "ccb6cd9aba0f452db42b3d4a2c049e", "publicURL": ""}], "endpoints_links": [], "type": "object-store", "name": "swift"}, {"endpoints": [{"adminURL": "", "region": "LAX", "internalURL": "", "id": "4213934b23294a96b2b8c553dcf00551", "publicURL": ""}], "endpoints_links": [], "type": "identity", "name": "keystone"}], "user": {"username": "david", "roles_links": [], "id": "ae2db21bb743d492881a68e4fe0d7a", "roles": [{"name": "_member_"}, {"name": "SwiftOperator"}], "name": "david"}, "metadata": {"is_admin": 0, "roles": ["9fe2ff9ee4384b1894a90878d3e92bab", "f3cdc70f048c9945c56e108372867"]}}}

Are you by chance using the tenant name to log in? If so, there should be a prior request failed auth request prior to the successful request.

This issue will be fixed in the next version of FileZilla Pro. A workaround is using the tenant ID instead of name to log in.

comment:4 by David, 5 years ago

I am using the Tenant name, confirmed.

I tested by replacing the tenant name with the tenant ID in the 'Project' text box and the login then worked as expected.

Happy New Year ! When is the next version scheduled for release? Thanks.

It's already been out for several weeks, the built-in auto-update mechanism should have informed you.
