For several versions of NextCloud, we’ve been unable to use our Rackspace CloudFiles external storage. I took some time today, and was able to use the occ command to enable debug logging and to test.
Whenever I trigger a test of the mount point, this appears in the logging:
Debug no app in context Exception: “password” is a required option, but it was not provided
Info no app in context External storage not available: “password” is a required option, but it was not provided
However, Rackspace authenticated storage (see https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/16/admin_manual/configuration_files/external_storage/openstack.html ) does NOT use a password, instead, it uses an API Key. Other OpenStack authentication does require a password, as far as I can tell.
I interpret this as a code update relating to OpenStack has unfortunately blocked use of non-password OpenStack authentication. Is anyone able to help me with this?
