Viewing another user's S3 access keys

If you are using an S3 tenant and you have appropriate permissions, you can view another user's S3 access keys. You can sort the list by expiration time so you can determine which keys will expire soon. As needed, you can create new keys and delete keys that are no longer in use.

Before you begin

About this task

Attention: The S3 buckets and objects belonging to a user can be accessed using the access key ID and secret access key displayed for that user in the Tenant Manager. For this reason, protect access keys as you would a password. Rotate access keys on a regular basis, remove any unused keys from the account, and never share them with other users.

Procedure

  1. Select ACCESS MANAGEMENT > Users.
    The Users page appears and lists the existing users.
  2. Select the user whose S3 access keys you want to view.
    The User details page appears.
  3. Select Access keys.

    Access Keys List for Other User
  4. Sort the keys by Expiration time or Access key ID.
  5. As needed, create new keys and manually delete keys that the are no longer in use.

    If you create new keys before the existing keys expire, the user can begin using the new keys without temporarily losing access to the objects in the account.

    Expired keys are removed automatically.
