Table 1 OBS Console functions



Basic bucket operations

Allow you to create and delete buckets of different storage classes in specified regions (service areas), as well as change bucket storage classes.

Basic object operations

Allow you to manage objects, including uploading (multipart uploads included), downloading, and deleting objects, as well as changing object storage classes and restoring Cold objects.

Server-side encryption

Encrypts objects on the server side to enhance security of objects stored on OBS.

Object metadata

Allows you to set properties for objects.


  • Cloud Eye can monitor the following OBS metrics:

    • Download Traffic

    • Upload Traffic

    • GET Requests

    • PUT Requests

    • First Byte Download Delay

    • 4xx Errors

    • 5xx Errors


With Cloud Trace Service (CTS), you can record data operations associated with OBS for later query, audit, and backtrack operations.

Fragment management

Manages and clears fragments generated due to object upload failures.


Stores multiple versions of an object in the same bucket.


Logs bucket access requests for analysis and auditing.

Event notification

Allows you to receive messages and emails from OBS.

Permission control

Controls access to OBS using IAM policies, bucket/object policies, and bucket/object access control lists (ACLs).

Lifecycle management

Allows you to configure lifecycle rules to periodically expire and delete objects or transition objects between storage classes.

Cross-region replication

Implements object replication across regions under the same account. A cross-region replication rule enables OBS to automatically, asynchronously copy data from a source bucket in one region to a destination bucket in a different region.

This provides disaster recovery across regions, catering to your needs for remote backup.


Help you identify and classify buckets in OBS.

Static website hosting

Supports the hosting of static websites in buckets and the redirection of access requests for buckets.

User-defined domain name configuration

Enables you to bind your website domain name to a bucket domain name. If you want to migrate files from your website to OBS while keeping the website address unchanged, you can use this function.

URL validation

Prevents object links in OBS from being stolen by other websites.

Cross origin resource sharing (CORS)

Allows a web client in one origin to interact with resources in another one. Cross origin resource sharing (CORS) is a browser-standard mechanism defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). For general web page requests, website scripts and contents in one origin cannot interact with those in another because of Same Origin Policies (SOPs).

Requester pays

Lets the requester pay for data transfer and API calls associated with accessing resources in the bucket and you (the bucket owner) pay for only data storage in the bucket.

Bucket inventory

Periodically provides CSV files that list object information in the bucket and delivers the CSV files to the specified bucket.
