Security & Identity (IAM)

To perform certain actions described below, you must either be the Owner of the Organization in which the actions will be performed or an IAM user with the necessary permissions.

Requirements
  • You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console
  • You have created an Object Storage bucket

When you delete a bucket, every object stored inside it is deleted as well.

  1. Click Object Storage in the Storage section of the side menu. The list of your buckets displays.
  2. Click the name of your selected bucket in the buckets list.
  3. Click the Bucket settings tab.
  4. Scroll to the end of the page and click Delete bucket.
    Important

    Deleting a bucket will also delete all of its objects. For safety measures, the effective deletion of the bucket will start 24 hours after the deletion request. The bucket name will then be available for other customers to use.

    Billing for your resources stops as soon as you click Delete bucket.

    Once you confirm your deletion request, the bucket and its objects and versions will no longer be displayed in the console or available via the APIs. For this reason, we recommend you erase all objects and versions in the bucket before requesting the deletion, if you wish the bucket deletion to be effective immediately.

  5. If you understand and agree to the conditions, type DELETE in the box and click Delete bucket.
    Important

    Files bigger than 1 GB might take longer to be deleted.

Alternatively, you can delete a bucket by clicking the «See more Icon» icon and then Delete in your bucket list.

Once the bucket is deleted, it disappears from your bucket list.
