Is it possible to make data in Allas read-only?

Inside a project

Inside a project there is currently no read-only mode in Allas. Each project member has full access to the data, which causes a risk: one can accidentally overwrite or delete data.

Between projects

You can give another project read-only access to your bucket with Swift or s3cmd.

Sharing URL

In addition, it is possible to make a bucket public, which makes the content available for viewing ('read-only') via URLs. The URL to an object in a public bucket is in form of https://bucket_name.a3s.fi/object_name or https://a3s.fi/swift/v1/AUTH_PROJECT_ID/bucket_name/object_name where PROJECT_ID is your computing project's identifier in UUID format.

Additional guidance for setting the bucket public
