Use tags to categorize your buckets. A tag represents a key-value pair.

If you use Cloudian HyperStore, you can add tags to your buckets. The ECS storage platform does not support tagging.


Verify that you have the required set of rights to add tags to a bucket.
  • If you are an organization administrator, you can add tags to buckets that users in your organization own.
  • If you are an organization user, you can add tags to the buckets that you own.
