External Buckets Overview

OBS enables you to add buckets of other users if you have the access permission for the buckets. By doing so, you can access the external buckets locally using your account.

The added external bucket cannot restore objects that do not belong to itself and cannot download the encrypted object of the bucket owner. To download an object from an external bucket, you must have the permission to read the object. The restoration status of the object of the bucket owner in an external bucket can be displayed only after the corresponding read permission is granted. Otherwise, OBS Browser cannot request the object and the restoration status cannot be displayed.
