Share Objects

By default, all OORT Storage objects are private. Only the object owner has permission to access them. However, the object owner can optionally share objects with others by creating a temporary authorized link, using their own security credentials, to grant time-limited permission to download the objects.

When you create a temporary authorized link for your object, you must provide your security credentials and then specify a bucket name, an object key, an HTTP method (GET to download the object), and an expiration date and time. The temporary authorized links are valid only for the specified duration. If you created a temporary authorized link using a temporary token, then the URL expires when the token expires, even if the URL was created with a later expiration time.

Anyone who receives the temporary authorized link can then access the object. For example, if you have a video in your bucket and both the bucket and the object are private, you can share the video with others by generating a temporary authorized link. Because temporary authorized link grant access to your OORT Storage buckets to whomever has the URL, we recommend that you protect them appropriately.

Go to the object that you want to share, rigth click on the object name and choose Share.

You can set the duration of the link expiration to a maximum of 12 hours, giving you greater control over how long the object can be accessed.

Whether you need to share a file with a colleague or provide temporary access to a client or customer, our temporary authorized link feature makes it easy to securely share your data and collaborate with others.
