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 accessible on all database nodes. You can also access ConfD through XML-RPC in your own Python programs. 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. For example:

confd_client -c bucket_add -a '{bucket_name: BUCKET_NAME, bucketfs_name: BUCKETFS_NAME, public: False, read_password: READPW, write_password: WRITEPW}'


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

confd_client -c bucketfs_info -a 'bucketfs_name: BUCKETFS_NAME'
