Wasabi is a cloud-based object storage service for a broad range of applications and use cases.

The Wasabi Advanced Usage Guide (also known as the Wasabi Management Console Guide) provides details about Wasabi cloud storage with procedures for new and experienced users.

Getting Started

For a quick start tutorial, see the Wasabi Getting Started Guide.

Accessing Wasabi in Different Ways

There are several ways to access Wasabi:

The Wasabi Management Console as well as the Billing Portal are accessible with iOS and Android:
— iOS (12 and 13) along with the Safari browser
— Android (9 and 10) along with the Chrome browser

Signing in to Wasabi

If you do not have an account, click Sign Up (below the Sign In panel) and continue with Signing Up for a Trial Account.
If you are an enterprise user, refer to Single Sign On (SSO) for an Enterprise Account.

To sign in with a Wasabi account:

  1. At www.wasabi.com, click Sign In at the top of the Wasabi page. You can sign in as a root user or subuser, as described in this procedure. (User names are described in Users.)

    As an alternative to English, you can click the English button (located below the Sign Up panel) and select the language in which to display the interface.

  2. To sign in as a root user, follow step 2a below. To sign in as a subuser, follow step 2b.   
    1. To sign in as a root user, enter your account email or alias. (Aliases are described in Creating an Account Alias.) Then, enter your password.
    2. To sign in as a subuser, click Sign In As Subuser. Then, enter the root account email, subuser name, and password.

  3. Click SIGN IN.

Note that as part of the Wasabi security policy, the account will be locked out for 5 minutes after 5 successive failures with an incorrect password. When this happens, the Sign In panel displays an alert message and an email is sent to the root user.

After a successful sign in, you are ready to work with the Wasabi Management Console. The Bucket List is displayed. For example:

The language button is available at the top right of this panel, which enables you to change the user interface language at any time while working with Wasabi.

Single Sign On (SSO) for an Enterprise Account

If you have an enterprise account with Wasabi Single Sign On (SSO) configured, you will see this login when you access the Wasabi URL: https://auth.wasabisys.com

You must contact Wasabi Customer Support to enable the SSO feature.

  1. Enter your organization’s provider ID.

    As an alternative to English, you can click the English button (located below the Sign Up panel) and select the language in which to display the interface.

  2. Click CONTINUE and you will be redirected to the Identity Provider (such as Okta) login panel. Enter your credentials.
  3. If you have been assigned with multiple roles on the Identity Provider, select one of the roles from a drop-down list. For example:

    Based on the selection, you will be able to perform actions on the Wasabi console as per the policy associated with your role.

  4. Click CONTINUE.

Logging Out of Wasabi

  1. Open the account sign-in  drop-down.
  2. Click Logout.

Timing Out of Wasabi

If you are not active in Wasabi, your session will time out automatically after one hour of inactivity (default) or the timeout length set by the root user (between 15 and 120 minutes). Note, however, that this will not occur if you are uploading objects.
