Creating a Bucket

Updated at: Nov 11, 2019 GMT+08:00

This section describes how to create a bucket on OBS Console. A bucket is a container that stores objects in OBS. Before you store data in OBS, you need to create buckets.

On OBS Console, an account can have 100 buckets.


  1. In the upper right corner of the OBS Console homepage, click Create Bucket. The Create Bucket dialog box is displayed. See Figure 1.

  2. Set Region and Storage Class, and then enter a name for the bucket.

    • Once a bucket is created, 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, periods (.), and hyphens (-). For example, if you attempt to access bucket MyBucket using the URL, bucket mybucket will be accessed instead, causing an access error.

  3. Bucket policy: You can select the Private, Public Read, or Public Read and Write policy for a bucket.
  4. Direct reading of data in the Archive storage class: When directly reading is enabled, you can directly download objects from the Archive storage class without restoring them in advance. Direct reading is a billable function. For details, see Product Pricing Details.
  5. Tags: Tags are used to identify and classify OBS buckets. Each tag has only one pair of key-value. Each tag is represented by one key-value pair. For more information, see Tag Overview.
  6. Click Create Now.
