S3 tenant accounts in StorageGRID Webscale

You can configure the StorageGRID Webscale system to accept connections from client applications originally developed to use S3 web services by creating an S3 tenant account.

S3 tenant accounts are created and deleted using the Tenants menu option for the Grid Management Interface or by using the management API. S3 groups and users, including S3 access keys, S3 bucket settings, and S3 group policies, are managed using the Tenant Management Interface or by using the Tenant API. When you configure an S3 client, you must provide the S3 account information, which is used in the authentication process. For more information, see the Administrator Guide and the Tenant Administrator Guide.
