Creating a bucket

In S3 compatible storage, buckets are organizational containers that store objects. When creating a bucket, you have the option to enable or disable object locking, and select one of the available Object Locking modes. Object locking settings apply to all objects in the bucket.

  • Governance mode - prevents users without the appropriate permissions from overwriting or deleting an object version or altering its lock settings. With governance mode, you protect objects against being deleted by most users, but you can still grant some users permission to alter the retention settings or delete the object if necessary. You can also use governance mode to test retention-period settings before creating a compliance-mode retention period.
  • Compliance mode - prevents objects from being overwritten or deleted by any user during the specified lock period. When an object is locked in compliance mode, its retention mode can't be changed, and its retention period can't be shortened. Compliance mode ensures that an object version can't be overwritten or deleted for the duration of the retention period.
  • None - no restrictions are applied.

NOTE: QoreStor supports a maximum of 100 buckets. The bucket default-bucket is created automatically when the object container is created.

To create a bucket

  1. In the navigation menu, click Containers.
  2. On the Containers pane, find the object storage container ObjectContainer. Click the ellipses icon, and click Edit.
  3. Click Create bucket.
  4. Enter a Name for your bucket.
  5. Optionally, select Object Locking and configure
    • Locking Mode - select between Compliance and Governance.
    • Locking Duration - select the number and format (days or years) to specify the time that the object lock will be active.

    IMPORTANT: The Object Locking status of a bucket cannot be changed once the bucket is created. To ensure flexibility in the future, you may set the object locking status to enabled, but the locking mode to None. If the locking mode is set to disabled, you will not be able to edit the bucket settings in the future

  6. Click Save.
