When you create a catalog, VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension creates a catalog bucket and reserves it as a system bucket.

Although the catalog bucket appears in the Buckets pane in VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension, you cannot interact with catalog buckets the same way you interact with regular buckets. You interact with catalog buckets from the Catalogs pane.


  1. Log in to the VMware Cloud Director tenant portal.
  2. From the More drop-down menu, select Object Storage.
  3. In the Catalogs pane, click New Catalog.
  4. Enter a name for the catalog and click Save.


The new catalog appears in the list of catalogs in the Catalogs pane.

What to do next

You can upload files to the catalog.
