Where Can I Obtain Access Keys (AK and SK)?

To access OBS using access keys as an IAM user, the programmatic access must be enabled by the account. For details, see Viewing or Modifying IAM User Information.

To access OBS in the EU-Dublin region, contact the administrator to obtain an access key pair. For details, see How Do I Obtain an Access Key (AK/SK) in the EU-Dublin Region?

When using OBS Browser+ to access OBS, you need to use the AK and SK for authentication. To obtain the AK and SK, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the console.
  2. Hover over the username in the upper right corner and choose My Credentials from the drop-down list.
  3. Choose Access Keys.
  4. Click Create Access Key.
  5. Enter an access key description (optional) and click OK.
  6. Enter the verification code your mobile phone, virtual MFA device, or email received, and click OK.

    This step is required only when you have enabled operation protection.

  7. Click Download to obtain the access key file.

    Keep AKs and SKs properly to prevent information leakage.
