    Article Summary

    When Bucket logging is enabled, a text log file will be maintained of all access to the bucket. This provides details about the types of access requests made, request resources, and the date/time of processed requests. You can enable bucket logging:

    • While creating a bucket, as described below.
    • After a bucket has been created (that is, for an existing bucket displayed in the Buckets list), as described in Bucket Settings: Logging
    Use logging cautiously because when logging is enabled, all log files are saved. This means the costs could be high, eventually, as log files are stored. For additional information, refer to: wasabi.com/pricing

    Creating a Bucket With Logging

    By default, the option to set the bucket logging feature is suspended (not enabled). To enable bucket logging:

    1. Complete  (Bucket Name) for creating a new bucket.
    2. Slide to enable the Bucket Logging toggle:
    3. Enter a logging prefix to include in the log file name (wdgt99 in the example). Each log file will start with the characters you enter.
    4. Select a bucket in which to store log files. Click the down arrow to select from a list of target buckets.

      In the following example, log file names will begin with "wdgt99” and the files will be stored in the widget-component-project bucket.

    5. Click Next.
    6. The bucket properties are displayed for your review. You can click Back if you need to change any information. Otherwise, click Create Bucket to accept the information and create the bucket.

      A message displayed at the top of your screen indicates that the bucket was created successfully.

    Enabling Logging for an Existing Bucket

    You can enable logging after the bucket is created. To do so, refer to Bucket Settings: Logging for more information about bucket settings and logging.
