You may need certain IAM permissions to carry out some actions described on this page. This means:

  • you are an IAM user of the Organization, with a policy granting you the necessary permission sets
  1. Click Object Storage in the Storage section of the side menu. A list of your buckets displays.

  2. Click the bucket name into which you want to upload your file.

  3. Click the gray area to select the files you want to upload into the bucket. Alternatively, you can drag and drop your files into the uploading area.

  4. Select the files to upload from the file browser tool of your operating system.


    Before uploading your files, make sure the file name is in accordance with the AWS s3 Object key naming guidelines.

  5. Select the storage class of your object. Scaleway Object Storage allows you to associate storage classes with each of your objects.


    Do not close your web browser during an upload, as it might result in an incomplete upload. If you want to upload files bigger than 1 GB, we recommend using the CLI.

    When the upload is completed, a list of the objects displays, including the newly uploaded objects.
