Yarkon 2.5 is now officially available

Version 2.5 of Yarkon is now available, including a number of major features:

  • White-labeling of client application.
  • Server side control of client application features.
  • Display names for buckets.

Branding (White Label)

With the 2.5 release of Yarkon, we added support for the most popular client request – branding (AKA, “white labeling”) of the Yarkon client application using the Admin Console user interface, without having to make manual changes to HTML and CSS files.

This feature is available in the Enterprise Edition.

Features

Setting up granular IAM policies is sometimes difficult. While this is always the recommended approach, we made things easier for the admin by adding account level controls over some of the features that are usually disabled for end users, such as create/delete bucket, change document permission, etc.

When checked off on the server side, these features will not be displayed to the end user. By default, all these features are turned off.

This feature is available in the Enterprise and Cloud editions, and will be added soon to the SDK edition.

Bucket Display Name

One of the issues with S3 is the requirement for bucket names to be globally unique. All the good names are already taken, it seems.

While we cannot change that, Yarkon now allows you to define a Display Name for your buckets, which will be shown in the UI instead of whatever S3 made you name the bucket.

This feature is available in the Enterprise and Cloud editions, and will be added soon to the SDK edition.

Using this feature requires granting the permissions S3:GetBucketTagging and S3:SetBucketTagging to the Yarkon Admin Console AWS User. The display name is using a bucket tag named yarkon-display-name.
