Deleting a Bucket

You can delete empty buckets using OBS Console to free up the quota of buckets.


  • The bucket you want to delete is empty.
  • Only the bucket owner can delete a bucket.


  1. Log in to OBS Console.
  2. In the bucket list, select the bucket you want to delete, and then click Delete on the right.


    After deleting a bucket, if you want to create a bucket with the same name of the deleted one, there is an interval limitation on the creation. For details about the limitation in specific scenarios, see section PUT Bucket"" in the Object Storage Service API Reference.

  3. Click OK.

    A message is displayed indicating that the bucket is deleted successfully.
