How to set up an Endpoint Storage

Endpoint Storage allows you to register an S3 Bucket in our system. When you have an Endpoint Storage set in our environment, you will be able to store some data from your deployment like the container's log.

How to setup an Endpoint Storage#

It is pretty simple to register your S3 Bucket if you follow these quick steps.

To see and set up a new Endpoint Storage, you need to go to the upper right menu and click on Endpoint Storage (S3 Bucket).

The first time you land on this page, you will not see any Endpoint storage in the list. Click on the create button in the upper right corner. You will be invited to complete this form. All fields are mandatory.

Name#

The name you want to give to your Endpoint Storage in our platform. It must be unique, since you will be able to use it in some API calls.

Access Key ID#

Pretty straight foward, the Access Key ID from your S3 Bucket.

Secret Access Key#

The Secret Access Key from your S3 Bucket. This field will be encrypted and you will not be able to modify it once you saved your Endpoint Storage. Don't worry if you put the wrong Access Key, you will be able to completely delete the Endpoint Storage and create a new one.

Endpoint URL#

Your S3 Bucket URL. Ensure that you include the full link (https://, http://, etc). You will be able to test it further in the process.

Bucket#

The name of your Bucket, ensure to put the right name associated with the credential, otherwise we will not be able to access it correctly.

Manage your Endpoint Storage#

You can access all your Endpoint Storage available with the upper right menu. You can remove and test your Endpoint Storage. We are not deleting your S3 Bucket, we only remove the connection information from our system. If you want to update an Endpoint Storage, you must delete it and create a new one.

When you press "Test" button, it will upload a file named "connection_test" under the "edgegap" directory in your S3 Bucket. You will have an alert box to notify you if it worked or not. If not, you might have something wrong in your Endpoint Storage configuration.
