Cyberduck Help / Howto / Google Storage

Google Storage for Developers is a S3 compatible service currently in development and open by invitation only. Support must be enabled first using a hidden configuration option using defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck protocol.gstorage.tls.enable true using the latest snapshot build.

Refer also to S3 in general.

Connecting to Google Storage

You must obtain the login credentials (Access Key and Secret) of your Google Storage Account from the Key Management page. In the login prompt of Cyberduck upon connecting to Google Storage you enter the Access Key for the username and Secret for the password.


Creating a folder inside a bucket will create a placeholder object named after the directory, has no data content and the mimetype application/x-directory.



You can edit standard HTTP headers add custom HTTP headers to files to store metadata. Choose File → Info → Google Storage to edit headers.


Granting access to selected users

You can give access to a specific user to a document by granting READ access to the email address registered with Google. The Signed URL from the Google Storage tab in the Info window with the format<container>/<file> will verify access to the resource using the Google Account login credentials.
