Caveats and Limitations

  • S3 API requests authenticated with application credentials do not support the following use cases:
    • Accessing a shared bucket if another user grants you permissions for the bucket.
    • Deleting multiple objects simultaneously with a single API request.
    • Restriction on copying objects from buckets that you own.
  • VMware Cloud Director and the underlying storage systems have different limitations on user names. To use VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension, user names must comply with both the requirements of VMware Cloud Director and the underlying storage system. A best practice is to use short user names (under 50 bytes) and to use alphanumeric characters.
