Working with Amazon S3 buckets by using the AWS Toolkit for JetBrains

Every object you store in Amazon S3 resides in a bucket. You can use buckets to group related objects in the same way that you use a directory to group files in a file system.

Creating an Amazon S3 bucket

  1. Open AWS Explorer, if it isn't already open.

  2. Right-click the Amazon S3 node and choose Create S3 Bucket.

  3. In the Create S3 Bucket dialog box, enter a name for the bucket.

    Note

    Because Amazon S3 allows your bucket to be used as a URL that can be accessed publicly, the bucket name that you choose must be globally unique. If some other account has already created a bucket with the name that you chose, you must use another name. For more information, see Bucket Restrictions and Limitations in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.

  4. Choose Create.

Deleting an Amazon S3 bucket

  1. Open AWS Explorer, if it isn't already.

  2. Click the Amazon S3 node to expand the list of buckets.
