How to upload files to Object Storage containers from Linux using curl?

You can use Openstack API to upload files, first you have to generate api token with following script:

# Example curl for token retrieve.
# Change name, domain, password in identity
# Change id and domain in project scope
# Change url corresponding to OS
# If you succeed you will recive x-subject token
export OP_TOKEN=$(curl -i \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '
{ "auth": {
"identity": {
"methods": ["password"],
"password": {
"user": {
"name": "",
"domain": { "name": "cloud_000xx" },
"password": "xxxxxxxxxxx"
"scope": { "project": {
"name": "your_project_name",
"domain": { "id": "your_domain_id"
}' \ | grep Subject-Token |  awk '{print $2}')

The obtained token will be stored in variable $OP_TOKEN.

Then you can use curl to send file upload request.

You can easily find the address of your Object Store URL in API Access menu:

Save it and proceed to typing in command.

For example:

curl -H 'X-Auth-Token: your_auth_token' Object_Store_API_ACCESS_URL/name_of_your_container

Will list the content of your Object Storage.

To upload a file:

curl -X PUT -i -d "" -H 'X-Auth-Token: your_auth_token' Object_Store_API_ACCESS_URL/name_of_your_container/your_file
