This section describes how to create a bucket in OBS Console. On OBS, buckets are containers where objects are stored. Before you store data in OBS, you need to create buckets.
An account can create 100 buckets.
- In the upper right corner of the OBS Console, click Create Bucket. Figure 1 displays Create Bucket dialog box.
Figure 1 Creating a bucket
- Set Region and Storage Class, and then enter a name for the bucket.
- Once you create a bucket, you cannot change the name of it. Make sure that the bucket name you set is appropriate.
- When a URL is used to access a bucket, the bucket name will become a part of the URL. According to the DNS rule, URLs do not support uppercase letters and cannot be used to access a bucket whose name contains uppercase letters. Therefore, a bucket name can contain only lowercase letters, digits, hyphens (-), and periods (.). For example, if you attempt to access bucket MyBucket using the URL, bucket mybucket will be accessed instead, causing an access error.
- You can configure any of the general policies for a bucket. The general policies include private, public read, and public read and write. Alternatively, you can set these properties after creating the bucket. For more information, see Configuring a Bucket Policy.
- Tags: Tags are used to identify and classify OBS buckets. Each tag is represented by one key-value pair. For more information, see Tags.
- Click Create Now.
