How to setup policy for AWS S3 compatible cloud storage backup

The policy in AhsayCBS allows administrator to: a). Enable / disable users to back up to their own AWS S3 compatible cloud storage accounts, and b). Enable / disable users to back up to a dedicated AWS S3 compatible cloud storage account predefined in AhsayCBS.

To enable users to back up to their own AWS S3 compatible cloud storage accounts:

Go to "AhsayCBS web console > Backup / Restore > Users, Groups & Policies > Policy Group". Select an existing policy or create a new policy. Then, enable the feature "Backup Set Settings > Destination Visible to Users". After this feature is enabled, you can add "Amazon S3 AWS Compatible Storage" under Standard Destination.


Then, assign users to an appropriate User Group that is bound to this policy, and these users will be able to back up to their own AWS S3 compatible cloud storage accounts.

To enable users to back up to a dedicated AWS S3 compatible cloud storage account predefined in AhsayCBS:

You need to create a Predefined Destination first by going to "AhsayCBS web console > System Settings > Basic > Predefined Destinations" and adding a dedicated AWS S3 compatible cloud storage account there.


After the above step, go to "AhsayCBS web console > Backup / Restore > Users, Groups & Policies > Policy Group". Select an existing policy or create a new policy. Then, enable the feature "Backup Set Settings > Destination Visible to Users" and add the predefined "Amazon S3 AWS Compatible Storage" under Predefined Destination.

Then, assign users to an appropriate User Group that is bound to this policy, and these users will be able to choose the predefined AWS S3 compatible cloud storage account as the backup destination. As you can see from the following image, only the customized destination name will be shown. The AWS S3 compatible cloud storage image will not be shown. Therefore, if you don't want the backup users to known the type of destination used, you can simply enter a name without the destination type, such as My Backup Server.
