Cyberduck Help / Howto / Google Storage

Google Storage for Developers is a S3 compatible service currently in development and open by invitation only.

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 Legacy Storage Access Keys 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 bucket

When connecting the first time, you must first create a new bucket with File → New Folder... (⌘-N).


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. Directory placeholder objects created in Google Storage Manager are not supported.



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 Web URL from the General tab in the Info window with the format<container>/<file> will verify access to the resource using the Google Account login credentials.
