2.2.1 Activate/Suspend/Delete a Storage account

Once you have accessed the technical datasheet for the Object Storage account, you can:
An account can be marked with the status:
  • ACTIVE - when the account is fully operational.
  • SUSPENDED - when the account retains all its features (price plan and saved details) but cannot be used. This status can be manually configured by the user or set by the system when credit runs out.
To change the status (disable/activate) of an account, click on:
  • "DISABLE" to disable an "ACTIVE" Storage account. A pop up window will appear displaying "The Object Storage Account will be disabled." asking you to confirm the action by pressing "OK, DISABLE".
  • "ACTIVATE" to activate a "SUSPENDED" Storage account. An "Activate Object Storage Account" pop up window will appear, asking to confirm the action by pressing "OK, CONFIRM".
The buttons can be found in the "OBJECT STORAGE ACCOUNT ACTIONS" section.
N.B. Deleting an account cannot be reversed and will result in the permanent loss of all data stored in the remote space and the deletion of any buckets (which will thereby become available again to all users).

If an account with a package price plan is deleted, any charges paid in advance will be lost.

To delete an account, click on "DELETE" in the "OBJECT STORAGE ACCOUNT ACTIONS" section.

This action can be performed whether an account is "ACTIVE" or "SUSPENDED".
