About Storage Buckets

Storage buckets are used to 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).

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 users and/or robots 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 create as many additional storage buckets as needed.

For details on using storage buckets in your automation projects see here.
