Manage S3 buckets using the CLI

This page describes how to manage S3 buckets using the CLI.
Using the CLI, you can:

Create a bucket

Command: weka s3 bucket create
Use the following command line to create an S3 bucket:
weka s3 bucket create <name> [--policy policy] [--policy-json policy-json] [--hard-quota hard-quota] [--fs-name fs-name] [--fs-id fs-id] [--existing-path existing-path]
Parameters
Name
Value
Default
name*
The name for the S3 bucket to add. Refer to the Bucket Naming Limitations section.
policy
The name of a pre-defined bucket policy for anonymous access. Possible values: none, download, upload, public.
none
policy-json
A path to a custom policy JSON file representing an S3 bucket policy for anonymous access.
hard-quota
Hard quota for the S3 bucket. You can only set on a new bucket without existing data. You cannot set it when using existing-path to an existing directory with data.
fs-name
Existing filesystem name to create the bucket within. Possible values: fs-name, fs-id.
The default filesystem specified when creating the S3 cluster.
fs-id
Existing filesystem ID to create the bucket within. Possible values: fs-name, fs-id.
The default filesystem specified when creating the S3 cluster.
existing-path
Existing directory path relative to the filesystem root to expose a bucket from.

List buckets

Command: weka s3 bucket list
Use this command to list existing buckets.

Set a bucket quota

Command: weka s3 bucket quota set
Use the following command line to set an S3 bucket quota:
weka s3 bucket quota set <bucket-name> <hard-quota>
Parameters
Name
Value
bucket-name*
The name of an existing S3 bucket.
hard-quota*
Hard quota for the S3 bucket. You can only set it initially on an empty bucket. Calling this command on a bucket that already has a quota changes the quota limitation.

Unset a bucket quota

Command: weka s3 bucket quota unset <bucket-name>
Use this command to unset an existing bucket quota.
If the bucket point to a directory shared with other protocols, changing the quota affects all protocols (changes the associated directory quota).

Delete a bucket

Command: weka s3 bucket destroy
Use this command to delete an existing bucket from the filesystem only if the bucket is empty. If the bucket is not empty, you can keep the data on the filesystem and remove the bucket from the S3 configuration.
weka s3 bucket destroy <name> [--unlink]
Parameters
Name
Value
name*
The name of an existing S3 bucket.
unlink
Detaches the bucket from the S3 configuration and keeps the data and metadata in place. Consequently, you can recreate the bucket while preserving the data and metadata (see weka s3 bucket create using the existing-path option).
Note: If the intent is to keep the data files for use outside of the S3 configuration and delete only the S3 metadata, contact the Customer Success Team for assistance.

Manage bucket policies

It is possible to set bucket policies for anonymous access. You can choose a pre-defined policy or add a customized policy.

Set a pre-defined bucket policy

A bucket is automatically created without any anonymous access permissions. You can use one of the pre-defined policies: download, upload, or public.
Example: For a bucket named mybucket, the following are the pre-defined policy values:
download
upload
public
{
"Statement": [
{
"Action": [
"s3:GetBucketLocation",
"s3:ListBucket"
],
"Effect": "Allow",
"Principal": {
"AWS": [
"*"
]
},
"Resource": [
"arn:aws:s3:::mybucket"
]
},
{
"Action": [
"s3:GetObject"
],
"Effect": "Allow",
"Principal": {
"AWS": [
"*"
]
},
"Resource": [
"arn:aws:s3:::mybucket/*"
]
}
],
"Version": "2012-10-17"
}
{
"Statement": [
{
"Action": [
"s3:GetBucketLocation",
"s3:ListBucketMultipartUploads"
],
"Effect": "Allow",
"Principal": {
"AWS": [
"*"
]
},
"Resource": [
"arn:aws:s3:::mybucket"
]
},
{
"Action": [
"s3:DeleteObject",
"s3:ListMultipartUploadParts",
"s3:PutObject",
"s3:AbortMultipartUpload"
],
"Effect": "Allow",
"Principal": {
"AWS": [
"*"
]
},
"Resource": [
"arn:aws:s3:::mybucket/*"
]
}
],
"Version": "2012-10-17"
}
{
"Statement": [
{
"Action": [
"s3:GetBucketLocation",
"s3:ListBucket",
"s3:ListBucketMultipartUploads"
],
"Effect": "Allow",
"Principal": {
"AWS": [
"*"
]
},
"Resource": [
"arn:aws:s3:::mybucket"
]
},
{
"Action": [
"s3:ListMultipartUploadParts",
"s3:PutObject",
"s3:AbortMultipartUpload",
"s3:DeleteObject",
"s3:GetObject"
],
"Effect": "Allow",
"Principal": {
"AWS": [
"*"
]
},
"Resource": [
"arn:aws:s3:::mybucket/*"
]
}
],
"Version": "2012-10-17"
}
Command: weka s3 bucket policy set
Use the following command line to set a pre-defined bucket policy:
weka s3 bucket policy set <bucket-policy> <bucket-name>
Parameters
Name
Value
bucket-policy*
Name of a pre-defined bucket policy for anonymous access. Possible values: none, download, upload, public.
bucket-name*
Name of an existing S3 bucket.

Set a custom bucket policy

To create a custom policy, you can use AWS Policy Generator and select S3 Bucket Policy type. With a custom policy, it is possible to limit anonymous access only to specific prefixes.
For example, to set a custom policy for mybucket to allow read-only access for objects with a public/ prefix, the custom policy, as generated with the calculator, is:
{
"Id": "Policy1624778813411",
"Version": "2012-10-17",
"Statement": [
{
"Sid": "Stmt1624778790840",
"Action": [
"s3:ListBucket"
],
"Effect": "Allow",
"Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::mybucket",
"Condition": {
"StringEquals": {
"s3:prefix": "public/"
}
},
"Principal": "*"
},
{
"Sid": "Stmt1624778812360",
"Action": [
"s3:GetObject"
],
"Effect": "Allow",
"Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::mybucket/public/*",
"Principal": "*"
}
]
}
Command: weka s3 bucket policy set-custom

weka s3 bucket policy set-custom <policy-file> <bucket-name>
Parameters

weka s3 bucket policy get <bucket-name> / weka s3 bucket policy get-json <bucket-name>

Name of an existing S3 bucket.

Unset a bucket policy

Command: weka s3 bucket policy unset
