Managing Storage Bucket Links


Sharing storage buckets between folders enables launching jobs in multiple folders without redesigning your workflows in Studio when the underlying processes are targeting the same bucket. Linking a bucket to a folder makes the bucket available in that folder.

📘

Note

A bucket linked to multiple folders is marked using the linked_iconlinked_icon icon. If the icon is not present, then the current folder is the only folder the bucket resides in. Deleting it here completely removes the bucket from Orchestrator.


You need the Storage Buckets - Create permission in the folders where you want to add the bucket (target folders) and Storage Buckets - View in the folder where the bucket currently resides (original folder). If you have Storage Buckets - Edit in the target folder, you also require Storage Buckets - Edit in the original folder.

Linking Multiple Buckets to the Current Folder

  1. In the Storage Buckets page, click Add. Three buttons are displayed allowing you to add a storage bucket, link one from other folders, or hide the options.
  2. Click Link Storage Buckets From Other Folders. The Link Storage Buckets window is displayed showing a list of all buckets in the folders in which you have View permissions on Storage Buckets.
  3. On the Select Storage Buckets section, select one or multiple buckets from the list.
  1. Click Continue. You are directed to the Folder Validation section. Here you can see the folders the buckets are already linked to. If there are multiple folders, the number is displayed. Hover over it to see the folder names.
  1. Click Remove for the corresponding bucket to revert the change or click Exit to cancel the operation.
  2. Click Link if you want to make the link between the bucket you selected and the current folder. The buckets are displayed on the Storage Buckets page.

Linking a Bucket to Multiple Folders

  1. Navigate to a folder the bucket to be linked resides in or is linked to.
  2. Click More Actions > Manage Links for the desired bucket to open the Manage Links window. The Manage Bucket Links window is displayed.
1 - Left-hand pane displaying all the folders you have been granted **View** permissions on Storage Buckets.
2 - The current state of the bucket displaying the number of folders it currently resides in as well as their names.
3 - The folders the bucket is to be added in according to your selection in the left-hand pane.

4 - The folders the bucket will be removed from.

  1. Click Update. A confirmation window is displayed.
  2. Click Cancel if you want to abort the changes or Continue for the changes to take effect. The operations are now reflected in Orchestrator according to your changes.

Unlinking Buckets From Folders

Unlinking buckets from folders can be performed in a manner similar to the linking operation. Navigate to the link-management areas presented in the procedures above and remove the connections between a certain bucket and a certain folder.
Alternatively, you can remove a bucket using the Delete functionality. See Deleting a Bucket.

🚧

Important

Removing a bucket that exists in multiple folders only removes it from the folder where the removal operation takes place, it does not remove it from the other folders as well. In order to completely delete a bucket, you must remove all its existing links.
