What should I use for the Identity & Credentials for authenticating with the cloud provider
e Cloud Storage plugin uses server credentials for accessing the cloud provider. Below is a listing of helpful places you can find the keys for common providers:
In the Azure portal, click on your cloud storage account. If you don't have one, create a new one
. Then click on Access Keys on the left under Settings. The Storage Account Name is the identity, and the key is the credentials. You can also create Buckets under the Storage Explorer menu on the left. See the illustration below.
In the AWS web console, navigate to the IAM area from the Servers menu at the top. Then click on Users on the left. Create a new user, or click on an existing user. The credentials are user based, so the plugin's access to data in your AWS account will be based on the user's privileges. Then click on the Security Credentials tab. Under Access Keys create a new key or use an existing one. Note that you can't retrieve the key values for previously created keys. You can also create Buckets under the Services->S3 main menu. Make sure the key you create has access to the bucket you want to use. See the illustration below:
Login to your Backblaze account. Click on App Keys under B2 Cloud Storage. Create a new key, or use an existing one. When you create a new key, your credentials are shows in blue on the page. You can also create Buckets under the Buckets menu on the left. Make sure the key you create has access to the bucket you want to use. See the illustration below.
