Remember that you must copy the values provided by radosgw-admin as that will be the user+pass hash'es to connect to the gw.

You can create it connected to the admin node:

sudo radosgw-admin user create --uid="${THEUSERNAME}" --display-name="${THEUSERNAME} user"
sudo radosgw-admin subuser create --uid=${THEUSERNAME} --subuser=${THEUSERNAME} --access=full
sudo radosgw-admin key create --subuser=${THEUSERNAME}:swift --key-type=swift --gen-secret
sudo radosgw-admin user modify --uid=${THEUSERNAME} --max-buckets=1

Limiting buckets:

sudo radosgw-admin user modify --uid=${THEUSERNAME} --max-buckets=1


sudo radosgw-admin user info --uid=${THEUSERNAME}
