How to reset your Cloud Storage secret key
Cloud Storage is UKCloud's object storage solution based on Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS).
Each user who can access Cloud Storage has an associated secret key to enable secure authentication. When attempting to access Cloud Storage, you must specify the appropriate secret key. If you forget the secret key for your user ID, you can reset it in the UKCloud Portal.
To complete the steps in this guide you must have been granted access to the relevant namespace.
Resetting your secret key
For security purposes, the UKCloud Portal does not display secret keys, if you forget your secret key, you must reset it to generate a new one.
In the Portal navigation panel, expand the Cloud Storage option and select ECS.
Click the Users button for the namespace for which you want to reset the secret key.
The Users tab lists the different user IDs associated with the namespace.
Click the Reset Secret button next to the appropriate user ID.
Click OK to confirm that you want to reset the secret key.
Stay on the current page until a popup dialog box displays the new secret key.
Make a note of the 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.
