How to create a new Cloud Storage user in the UKCloud Portal
Cloud Storage is UKCloud's object storage solution based on Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS). Although you'll mostly interact with Cloud Storage through the API, you can create new Cloud Storage users in the UKCloud Portal.
To complete the steps in this guide you must have been granted access to the relevant namespace.
Creating a new Cloud Storage user
To create a new Cloud Storage user:
In the Portal navigation panel, expand the Cloud Storage option and select ECS.
On the Storage tab, click the Users button for the namespace in which you want to create the new user:
The Users tab lists the different user IDs associated with the namespace.
Click the Add new user button.
In the Create ECS User dialog box, make a note of the User ID and Secret Key and then click Close.
After you close this dialog box, you will not be able to see the secret key again in the UKCloud Portal. If you do not make a note of the secret key or if you forget or lose it, you will need to reset it again. For information about how to do this, see How to reset your Cloud Storage secret key.
