Bucket Management

Bucket List

Use the Yarkon Admin Console to view the list of buckets the server has access to. No matter which security model you elect to use, no Yarkon end-user will ever get access to a bucket that is not listed here.

The bucket lists will show the region, date created and CORS status for each bucket; when using “Display Names” for buckets, the display name you set for each bucket will be shown as well.

See below for more information about CORS. Initially, for optimization reasons, the CORS status for each bucket is displayed as “N/A” (Not Available), until you analyze it to determine the current state.

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 Yarkon Server and Yarkon Cloud.

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.

Analyzing and Updating CORS

Cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) defines a way for client web applications that are loaded in one domain to interact with resources in a different domain. You can get more information on the subject from this document from Amazon.

Yarkon Cloud and Yarkon Servers both require enabling CORS on all target buckets for the client to be able to work.

To analyze CORS for a bucket, use the action button next to its name and choose Analyze CORS from the context menu displayed. If you want to analyze CORS for multiple buckets, check the boxes next to their names, then click the Analyze CORS button from the toolbar. The status of the bucket will update once the analysis is completed.

After you analyzed the CORS status and determined that an update is required for a specific bucket or buckets, proceed to enable CORS for the buckets. To enable CORS for a bucket, use the action button next to its name and choose Update CORS from the context menu displayed. If you want to enable CORS for multiple buckets, check the boxes next to their names, then click the Update CORS button from the toolbar. In the pop-up form, specify the origin you want to set and approve the change.
