Description

If a directory is empty it will not show up in the list. You have to use another program and make sure there's a file in the directory (bucket) before it will show up.

Also, I cannot create a sub bucket

  • Component changed from core to s3
  • Summary changed from Amazon S3 Bucket not showing and cannot create new sub-bucket to Virtual empty folders not supported
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

There are only top level buckets in S3. Read more about buckets at http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AmazonS3/latest/index.html?UsingBucket.html. Keys (Objects) in buckets have a virtual delimiter that is interpreted to navigate in a path like way. This is supported. However some clients support virtual empty folders that are simulated by creating an empty file with a MIME type of application/x-directory.
