For each user, an Object Storage Key is generated automatically, which is activated when the user is granted permission to use the IONOS S3 Object Storage.
Generate object storage keys: A bucket owner can have multiple Object Storage Keys, which can be given to other users or automated scripts. Users using such an additional Object Storage Key to access the IONOS S3 Object Storage automatically inherit credentials and access rights of the bucket owner. This can be useful for allowing users automated (scripted) or temporary access to object storage. When the automated or temporary use is over, the additional Object Storage Key can be deactivated.
Activate/deactivate: Deactivating an Object Storage Key will block access to the IONOS S3 Object Storage. A deactivated key can be reactivated and access restored.
Delete: If a key is no longer needed or if it should no longer be possible to gain access to the IONOS S3 Object Storage with this key, it can be deleted. This cannot be undone.
1. Go to Menu > Management > Users & Groups
2. Select a User and click the Object Storage Keys tab on the right.
