Object Mover organizes storage endpoints into storage profiles. Storage profiles allow you to save storage credentials for storage locations allowing you to create multiple jobs without needing to re-enter storage credentials for each new job. Storage profiles also allow you to easily reconfigure jobs to send files to another storage location if required by editing the storage profile.
After creating a Storage Profile, you can use it to create Object Mover jobs.
Object profile configuration can vary depending on your object storage type.
Agents can also transfer to other low-latency, unaccelerated S3 compatible object storage.
The Administration > Object Storage > List menu controls your Object Storage Profiles, and allows you to create and edit existing profiles. You can create Storage Object Profiles for AWS S3 Storage, Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, Google Cloud Storage, or S3 Compatible storage.
Before you create a profile for an AWS S3 bucket, Azure Blob container, or Google Storage bucket, you must claim the endpoint in your Flight Administration Console. If your endpoint is not claimed, you will not be able to transfer files to or from your storage location.
Ensure that the user associated with the AWS access key has the following object and bucket operation permissions:
Note: Amazon S3 Glacier is not supported.
To create a new AWS S3 Storage Profile:
To create a new Azure Object Storage Profile:
In order to transfer files to and from Google Cloud Storage, you must create a Service Account. Create the account using the Google Cloud Console, by navigating to IAM & Admin > Service Accounts.
Create a new Service Account with Storage Object Admin, Storage Object Creator and Storage Object Viewer account permissions.
Once you have created a storage account, create and download the Service Account Key from the Service accounts list in JSON format, and create the storage profile for Object Mover.
To create a new Google Cloud Storage Profile:
S3 compatible storage can be any third-party object storage that is not hosted by Amazon. S3 compatible storage profiles do not require you to claim the endpoints in Flight.
To create a new Local S3 Object Storage Profile:
S3 compatible storage can often require additional configuration settings to ensure compatibility. Click the Advanced tab to view additional options:
Permissions allow administrators to control user and group access to management objects. For information on enabling permissions, see Understanding Users.
Before you can delete a storage profile, you must remove it from any jobs in your Manager.
