Create New Bucket

This section explains how to create buckets in a BucketFS service.


You must have a BucketFS service configured. For more information, see Create New Bucket.


This procedure is carried out using ConfD.

The following examples use ConfD through the command-line tool confd_client, which is available on all database nodes. For more information, see ConfD.

Placeholder values are indicated with UPPERCASE characters. Replace the placeholders with your own values.

To create a bucket, use the ConfD job bucket_add with the following parameters:

Parameter name Data type Description
bucket_name string The name of the new bucket name.
bucketfs_name string The name of the BucketFS service that will store the new bucket.
public boolean

Indicates whether the bucket content is public.

Valid values are True and False.

read_password string The password for read permissions in the bucket.
write_password string The password for read/write permissions in the bucket.

For example:

confd_client bucket_add bucket_name: my_bucket bucketfs_name: my_bucketfs public: False read_password: READPW write_password: WRITEPW


To verify that the bucket was successfully created, use the ConfD job bucketfs_info:

confd_client bucketfs_info bucketfs_name: my_bucketfs
