Bucket management

Before you upload objects to Kingsoft Cloud Standard Storage Service (KS3), you must create a bucket to store the objects. You can configure various attributes for a bucket, including the region, access permissions, and other metadata.

In the KS3 console, you can view and manage buckets, and delete buckets if you no longer need them.

Create a bucket

  1. Log in to the KS3 console.
  2. Click Bucket in the left navigation pane to create a bucket.

Note: The bucket name must conform to the naming rules and be unique in KS3. After a bucket is created, the bucket name cannot be changed.

The bucket name must conform to the following naming rules:

  • The name can contain only lowercase letters, digits, dots (.), and hyphens (-).
  • The name must start with a lowercase letter or digit.
  • The name can contain 3 to 63 characters in length.
  • The name cannot be in the IP address format, such as
  • The name cannot start with kss.

To create a bucket, perform the following steps on the Bucket page:

  1. Click Create Bucket.

  2. In the Create Bucket pane, select a region, enter a bucket name, select a project to which the current bucket belongs, a storage type, and an access permission, and then click OK.


Note: A non-archive bucket stores objects of the standard and low frequency types. You can access such objects without the need to restore them. An archive bucket stores objects that are stored for a long time and rarely accessed. To access such objects, you must restore them first.

View information about a bucket

  1. After a bucket is created, you can view its usage on the Bucket Details page of the bucket.
  2. For more information about the metrics on the Bucket Details page, see Report Center.

Delete a bucket

If you no longer need a bucket, delete it to avoid unnecessary fees. Before you delete a bucket, make sure that all objects in the bucket are deleted. Otherwise, the bucket cannot be deleted.

To delete a bucket, perform the following steps:

  1. On the Bucket page, find the bucket to delete.

  2. Click Delete in the Action column.


  1. In the dialog box that appears, click OK.
    Note: Before you delete a bucket, delete all objects in the bucket.
