How can I upload a tar.bz2 file to OpenStack swift object storage container using the Python swift client?

I wrote a Python script that included the python-swiftclient module to connect to the OpenStack Object Storage and upload some files to the container after reading the python-swiftclient documentation: https://docs.openstack.org/python-swiftclient/latest/client-api.html

It works great if I upload a file that ends with the extension .gz however, I'm getting some errors when it comes to the compressed file that ends with the extension .tar.bz2.

I've included the Python script and the errors I get after running it. Please show me where I'm wrong, and I would like some assistance in solving this issue.



Python:
from keystoneauth1 import session
from keystoneauth1.identity import v3
from swiftclient.client import Connection
from swiftclient.client import ClientException
import gzip
import tarfile

# Create a password auth plugin
auth = v3.Password(auth_url='https://cloud.company.com:5000/v3/',
                   username='myaccount',
                   password='mypassword',
                   user_domain_name='Default',
                   project_name='myproject',
                   project_domain_name='Default')

# Create session
keystone_session = session.Session(auth=auth)

# Create swiftclient Connection
swift_conn = Connection(session=keystone_session)

# Create a new object with the contents of Netbox database backup
with gzip.open('/var/backup/netbox_backups/netbox_2024-03-16.psql.gz', 'rb') as file:
    swift_conn.put_object(
        container,
        'object_netbox_2024-03-16.psql.gz',
        contents=file,
        content_type='application/gzip'
    )

# Confirm the presence of the object holding the Netbox database backup
obj1 = 'object_netbox_2024-03-16.psql.gz'
container = 'netbox-backups'
try:
    resp_headers = swift_conn.head_object(container, obj1)
    print("The object " + obj1 + " was successfully created")
except ClientException as e:
    if e.http_status == '404':
        print("The object " + obj1 + " was not found!")
    else:
        print("An error occurred checking for the existence of the object " + obj1)

# Create a new object with the contents of the compressed Netbox media backup
with tarfile.open("/var/backup/netbox_backups/netbox_media_2024-03-16.tar.bz2", "r:bz2") as file_tar_bz2:
    swift_conn.put_object(
        container,
        'object_netbox_media_2024-03-16.tar.bz2',
        contents=file_tar_bz2,
        content_type='application/x-tar'
    )

# Confirm the presence of the object holding the compressed Netbox media backup
obj2 = 'object_netbox_media_2024-03-16.tar.bz2'
container = 'netbox-backups'
try:
    resp_headers = swift_conn.head_object(container, obj2)
    print("The object " + obj2 + " was successfully created")
except ClientException as e:
    if e.http_status == '404':
        print("The object " + obj2 + " was not found!")
    else:
        print("An error occurred checking for the existence of the object " + obj2)

Below are the errors I'm getting after running the script

Code:
(venv) [root@scs-sandbox01 backups]# python netbox_backups_transfer.py

The swiftclient.put_object function expects a file-like object with a read() method. When you directly pass the tarfile.TarFile object to contents, it doesn't work because TarFile doesn't have a built-in read() method to iterate through the entire archive.
