Reviewing the Wasabi Management Console Display

When you sign in to the Wasabi Management Console, the display depends on whether or not you have created buckets. If you do not have any buckets in your account, a page suggesting that you create a bucket is displayed.

If you have buckets in your account, the Bucket List is displayed from which you can manage storage.

Understanding Console Display Features

The Wasabi Management Console consists of three basic work areas:

  • Wasabi menu
  • Common tools
  • Console panel

Wasabi Menu

The Wasabi menu is displayed on the left of the screen.

Click  to toggle between showing and hiding the menu. Chapters in this document describe each option. Click the Support option to access user documentation at any time.

Console Panel

Information is listed on the console panel, which is the largest area of the screen. For example, if you are working with Buckets, the Bucket List is displayed. If you are working with Groups, you will see the Groups List.

You can indicate that you want to display 10, 25, 50, or 100 rows of information per page. This option is available at the bottom right of the Buckets, Objects, Policies, Access Keys, Groups, Roles, and Users lists. The rows per page, an indication of the entries you are viewing, and the total number of entries are indicated. In the following example, we are displaying 10 rows per page and viewing entries 1 to 10 of the total of 16 entries.

You can use the < and > keys to go to the previous (<) or next (>) page.

A bucket with a large number of objects will list the first 300 keys when the bucket is first opened. As you page through the list, it will fetch 300 keys at a time. Any operation, such as searching or sorting, will take place only on these 300 objects. We recommend using Wasabi Explorer or another third-party tool that will download the entire list of objects if this is needed.

Common Tools

Several tools are displayed across the top of the screen. For example:

Enables you to search for certain types of information, depending on the specific panel. In the example above, you can search for buckets.
