Yes, Swift multitenancy definitely works, but Swift integration with
Keystone is admittedly not perfectly documented. I'm currently working
on a documentation patchset; please see the PR at

You didn't give us much information on *how* you've been trying to
create your containers. swift client? openstack client? An application
using the python-swiftclient library? A handcrafted POST request? What
exactly is the request you are trying, and what error you are getting as
a result? What shows up in your radosgw logs?
