Granting Object Access Permissions to Anonymous Users

An enterprise stores a large volume of map data in OBS, and offers the data for public query. This enterprise sets a read permission for anonymous users, and provides the data URLs on the Internet. Then all users can read or download the data through the URLs.


  1. Log in to OBS Console and click Create Bucket to create a bucket.

  2. In the bucket list, click the name of the newly created bucket. On the page that is displayed, click Objects in the pane on the left, and upload the map data as an object to the new bucket.

  3. Click the object to be operated and click Object ACL.

  4. Under Object ACL > Public Permissions > Anonymous User, click Edit to set Access to Object to Read, as shown in Figure 1.
