About Storage Buckets

Storage buckets provide a per-folder storage solution for RPA developers to leverage in creating automation projects (e.g. for a .pdf file used across multiple business processes or data sets used for your machine learning models). For details on using storage buckets in your automation projects read about Orchestrator activities in the Activities guide.

As storage buckets are created within the scope of a given folder, this enables you to use the fine-grained permissions and role assignment models of the Folders feature to control access to these storage buckets and their contents only to those accounts that need it. Users with the required permissions can browse the contents of any configured storage bucket, and upload or download files as desired.

The Storage Buckets page displays your currently configured buckets and enables you to create as many additional storage buckets as needed.

Enabling Storage Providers


Storage Buckets can be configured using any of the following providers:

  • Orchestrator
  • Azure Storage (WASB)
  • Amazon S3
  • MinIO
  • S3 Compatible storage solutions
  • FileSystem

To specify which providers can be used in creating storage buckets in Orchestrator you must proceed as follows:

  1. Open the UiPath.Orchestrator.dll.config file in the Orchestrator installation folder.
  2. Specify the desired storage providers using the Buckets.AvailableProviders parameter. For example, add the following key in the UiPath.Orchestrator.dll.config file to enable Orchestrator, Amazon, Azure, MinIO and S3 compatible storage providers: <add key="Buckets.AvailableProviders" value="Orchestrator,Amazon,Azure,Minio,S3Compatible" />. See the dedicated Buckets.AvailableProviders section in the Installation and Upgrade guide for details.
  3. Restart Orchestrator.

🚧

Important!

FileSystem is disabled by default on both new installations and upgrades. To enable this provider, you need to explicitly specify it as a Buckets.AvailableProviders value in the UiPath.Orchestrator.dll.config file, and then add the FileSystem paths to an allowlist using the Buckets.FileSystem.Allowlist setting.

Considering that creating a FileSystem allowlist via the Buckets.FileSystem.Allowlist setting has a series of security implications, you are strongly advised to refer to Using the FileSystem Storage Allowlist Securely before proceeding.
