Managing Your Buckets

Use the Storage section to view and manage your storage buckets and to start the creation of object groups.

Use the Storage page to review and manage the available cloud-storage buckets configured for the system, and to list the objects that they contain. From this page you can also launch the creation of object groups to organize those cloud-storage objects into containers for indexing.


When you select a bucket, the left list shows any object groups in the bucket. Labels on the object groups indicate whether the groups use static or live indexing. Note that you cannot navigate inside a bucket if you do not have access to the bucket.

In the main panel, the Objects tab allows you to navigate into the contents of the storage bucket, if you have permission to see the contents. You can see folders as well as cloud-storage objects like the log and event files written to those areas.

Searching for a Bucket

To search for a specific bucket, type a string in the Search Buckets field. The filter performs a case-insensitive match and displays the bucket names (and object group names) that contain the filter. For example, searching for the text cloud reduces the list to the bucket and group names that contain that string.


As another example, the filter sqs displays an object group that matches the filter, even though the bucket name does not:


Sorting the Buckets List

Click the three-dots icon (stacked ellipsis) to the right of the filter to display a menu of bucket list actions. For example, you can sort the bucket names alphabetically using the Ascend Buckets or Descend Buckets selections.


Update the Buckets List

Use the Refresh Buckets option to update the Storage page with the latest buckets and information.

What’s Next

After you select the bucket that contains one or more files that you want to index, you can create an object group.
