Manage Objects and Folders

Search objects

Using the S3 Web Console, you can search for objects in buckets if the prefix or full name is known. For technical reasons, it is not possible to search for objects across buckets or folders.
To search for an object in the web console, follow these steps:
1. In the DCD, go to Menu > Storage > IONOS S3 Object Storage.
2. From the Buckets list, choose the bucket in which you want to search for objects.
3. In the Search by Prefix field, enter the prefix or file name to search for.
Search by Prefix search box
Search by Prefix search results
Result: The objects matching your search criteria are displayed.

Version objects

If you have enabled versioning for your S3 bucket, you have the flexibility to download non-current versions of objects. Versioning is not enabled by default. Objects that were already uploaded to the object storage before versioning was activated are identified by ID null. If versioning is deactivated, existing object versions are retained. For more information, see Versioning.

Delete objects

If you no longer want to keep the objects in the IONOS S3 Object Storage, these objects can be deleted. Deleted objects are not physically removed from the Object Storage, but receive a 'delete marker' and then have a size of 0 KB. These markers are deleted at an interval specified by the user or by the system.
There are two ways to delete objects from the IONOS S3 Object Storage using the S3 web console - manually and automatically.

Delete an object manually

1. In the DCD, go to Menu > Storage > IONOS S3 Object Storage.
2. From the Buckets list, choose the bucket or folder from which you want to delete an object.
3. Choose the object to delete and click on the respective object's action menu (three dots).
4. Click Delete.
Delete an object manually
5. Confirm the deletion of the object by choosing Delete.
Result: The object is successfully deleted from the bucket.
You can also permanently delete non-current versions of objects, delete objects with expired delete markers, and delete incomplete multipart uploads.

Delete a folder

1. In the DCD, go to Menu > Storage > IONOS S3 Object Storage.
2. From the Buckets list, choose the bucket from which you want to delete a folder.
3. Choose the folder to delete and click on the respective folder's action menu (three dots).
4. Click Delete.
Delete a folder manually
5. Confirm the deletion of the folder by choosing Delete.
Result: The folder is successfully deleted from the bucket.

Delete objects and folders

You can delete multiple objects and folders in a bucket at a time by following these steps:
1. In the DCD, go to Menu > Storage > IONOS S3 Object Storage.
2. From the Buckets list, choose the bucket from which you want to delete objects and folders.
3. Select the checkboxes against the names of the objects and folders to be deleted.
