Log Bucket Access

You can record all accesses to a bucket in a log file that conforms to S3 bucket logging from the time logging is activated. If the bucket is accessed, this log file is created in a bucket of your choice at an interval specified by the system. Please note that logging is not activated by default.
Prerequisites: You can save log files inside of the logged bucket or you can create a new one for this purpose.
1. Access individual bucket properties by going to Buckets > Name > Properties.
Manage Buckets using the Properties tab.
There are two ways to assign write access. The first method is via Bucket Permissions.
2. From the Bucket Permissions tab, check off the Writable box under Log Delivery Group.
3. Save your preferences.
The Log Delivery Group lets you set writing preferences for your S3 Bucket.
Alternatively, you may set write access from the Bucket Canned ACL tab.
2. From the Bucket Canned ACL tab, select Log Delivery Write from the SET CANNED ACL dropdown.
3. Save your preferences.
Alternatively, you can make a Bucket writable from the Bucket Canned ACL tab.

Prerequisites: Write access for Log Delivery needs to be enabled on the target bucket. You have to be the owner of the target bucket.
1. Under a Bucket's properties, open the Logging tab.
2. To activate logging, click the Enable Logging check box.
3. In the Destination Bucket field, enter the name of the buckets in which to save the log files. Source and target bucket may be identical.
Enabling logging for an individual bucket is done from the Logging tab of the Properties.
(Optional) In the Target Prefix field, enter the prefix for log files so that you can sort them more easily later (e. g. log_). If you enter no prefix, the log file name is derived from its time stamp alone.

1. To deactivate logging, uncheck the Enable Logging check box.
2. Save your settings by clicking Save.
3. Log files are generated and saved to the target bucket in the format (<prefix>)<time stamp>.
4. You can modify or deactivate logging at any time with no effect on existing log files. Log files are handled like any other object in the IONOS S3 Object Storage.
