              • Name : name for the credentials (it is recommended to include the lab name)

                  • Cloud provider : leave empty
                    • Space : the space of the lab
                      • S3 username : leave empty
                        • Next create the bucket that reference your datahub and use this new credentials. Go to Admin dashboard > Buckets and create a new one with the following values : Bucket type : Lab
                          • Lab : select your datahub lab.
                            • Credentials : select the new created credentials

                              Create the bucket

                              Create the lab bucket that uses this credentials.

                              Create a project

                              You are now ready to use the datahub as a storage for your project.

                              Create a new project and select your lab as your storage location (you can disable the backup storage location if you don't want you objects to be stored elsewhere as the lab is automatically backup).

                              Use this storage as default

                              In your space, you can use this new storage as the default for project. Go to Space > Manage your space. Edit the space and select the new storage location.

                              View document in the lab

                              As the documents are stored in the lab, it is possible to view them in the databox.

                              In the databox select Include not flagged resources to view all resource. The project document are tagged with the tag : bucket : projects-storage. You can also filter them by selecting the Origin : Project document.
