Reviewed on 23 November 2023Published on 27 May 2021
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.

Once enabled, the versioning feature supports the retrieval of objects that are deleted or overwritten. It is a way to keep multiple variants of an object in the same bucket.

If the feature is enabled, you can list archived versions of an object or permanently delete an archived version.

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

If you enable versioning, you will have several object versions. Each version of an object stored in your bucket takes up disk space and is billed.

How to enable versioning

  1. Click Object Storage in the Storage section of the side menu. A list of your buckets displays.
  2. Click the name of your selected bucket.
  3. Click the Bucket settings tab.
  4. Scroll down and click Enable versioning under Bucket versioning. A pop-up appears to confirm versioning activation.
  5. Click Enable bucket versioning to proceed.

How to suspend versioning

  1. Click Object Storage in the Storage section of the side menu. A list of your buckets displays.
  2. Click the name of your selected bucket.
  3. Click the Bucket settings tab.
  4. Scroll down and click Disable versioning under Bucket versioning. A pop-up appears with the following message:
    Important

    Once Versioning is suspended, no new versions of objects will be created. Versions created up until this point will remain stored and listed. If you upload an object with the same name as an existing object, the old object will be overwritten.

  5. Click Disable bucket versioning if you agree and wish to proceed with versioning suspension on the bucket.
