Object Storage allows you to store any kind of object (documents, images, videos, etc.) and retrieve them at a later time from anywhere.
For instance, you can store images and they will be accessible using HTTP. You can use the control panel to manage your storage. Some tools exist to interact with Object Storage.
There are three steps to configure and use Object Storage with Cyberduck
To retrieve your credentials, refer to S3 credentials.
A simple solution to begin with Object Storage is to use the Cyberduck tool, which is a graphical client for Object Storage.
Cyberduck allows you to create, list and delete buckets, download, upload, and delete objects inside the Object Storage.

description are updated with your values
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Protocol</key> <string>s3</string> <key>Vendor</key> <string>poc</string> <key>Description</key> <string>s3.nl-ams.scw.cloud</string> <key>Default Hostname</key> <string>s3.nl-ams.scw.cloud</string> <key>Default Port</key> <string>443</string> <key>Username Placeholder</key> <string>Access Key</string> <key>Password Placeholder</key> <string>Secret Key</string> <key>Authorization</key> <string>AWS4HMACSHA256</string> <key>Region</key> <string>nl-ams</string> <key>Regions</key> <array> <string>nl-ams</string> </array> </dict> </plist>
