Procedure

  1. Log in to the VMware Cloud Director tenant portal.
  2. From the More drop-down menu, select Object Storage.
  3. In the Buckets pane, click the name of the bucket that you want to share.
  4. On the Permissions tab, click Edit.
  5. Configure the required set of permissions for the bucket and click Save.
    • To share the bucket with users from your tenant organization, use the toggle buttons in the Tenant Users row.

      If you use the ECS storage platform, this option is not available.

    • To share the bucket with authenticated users from all tenant organizations, use the toggle buttons in the Authenticated Users row.
    • To share the bucket with all users, use the toggle buttons in the Public row.
    • To share the bucket with specific users within your organization, click the Add User button, select the user, and use the toggle buttons in the corresponding row.
    • To write bucket logs, VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension uses the System Logger account. Modifying the permissions of the System Logger account for a logging target bucket might result in failure to write bucket logs. For more information, see Working with Bucket Logs.

      If you use the ECS storage platform, this option is not available.
