To clean up buckets that you no longer need from VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension, you can delete the buckets. You can delete one bucket at a time.

As an organization user you cannot delete shared buckets and reserved buckets that contain vApps and catalogs.


  • Verify that you have the required set of rights to delete a bucket.
    • If you are an organization administrator, you can delete buckets that users in your organization own.
    • If you are an organization user, you can only delete the buckets that you own.
  • Verify that the bucket you want to delete does not store any objects.


  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, select the bucket that you want to delete.
  4. Click Delete and confirm the deletion.
