MASV

Integration

To integrate Storj with MASV, you will need to create S3 credentials in Storj and add them within MASV.

Requirements

  • An active Storj account
  • A bucket for use with MASV in your Storj instance
  • An active account on MASV

Create an Account

To begin, you will need to create a Storj account.

Navigate to https://www.storj.io/signup?partner=MASV to sign up, or log in https://storj.io/login if you already have an account.

Create a Bucket

Once you have your Storj account you can create a bucket for your data to be stored in.

  1. Navigate to Buckets on the left side menu.

  2. Click New Bucket on the top right.

  3. Assign the bucket an easily identifiable name, such as "my-bucket".

  4. Click Create bucket

Generate S3 credentials

Storj has an Amazon S3 compatible API and you'll need generate S3 credentials to use it. S3 credentials consist of an access key, secret key, and endpoint.

Create S3 credentials in the Storj console:

  1. Navigate to Access on the left side menu.

  2. Click Create S3 Credentials under the S3 Credentials block.

  3. When the Create Access screen comes up, set specifications according to the following guidelines:

    • Type: S3 Credentials
    • Name: The name of the credentials (e.g. my-access)

  4. Click Continue to provide permissions

    • Permissions: All
    • Buckets: Feel free to specify the bucket you created above (e.g. my-bucket), or leave as “All”
    • End date: provide an expiration date for these credentials (optional)

  5. Click Continue to provide Access encryption Information

    In order to see the data uploaded to your bucket in the Storj console, you must unlock the bucket with the same encryption passphrase as the credentials.

    • Use the current passphrase: this is default option
    • Advanced: you may provide a different encryption phrase either your own or generate a new one.
      • Enter a new passphrase: use this option, if you would like to provide your own new encryption phrase
      • Generate 12-word passphrase: use this option, if you would like to generate a new encryption phrase

  6. Click Create Access to finish creation of your S3 credentials

  7. Click Confirm the Confirm details pop-up message

  8. Your S3 credentials are created. Write them down and store them, or click the Download all button. You will need these credentials for the following steps.
