    Overview

    You can manage file categories and storage regions in the Upload Storage section of the VOD console.

    Category Management

    1. Log in to the VOD console, and click Upload Storage > Category Management on the left sidebar to enter the Category Management page.
    2. Click Add Category, enter a category name in the pop-up, and click OK.
    3. The newly added category will be displayed in the category list on this page, where you can rename or delete a category or add a subcategory.
      • Rename: click the target category name, and then click the edit icon to rename the category.
      • Delete: click Delete in the row of the target category to delete it. If it contains subcategories, you need to delete the subcategories first.
      • Add subcategory: click Add Subcategory in the row of the target category, enter a subcategory name in the pop-up, and then click OK.
    Note:

    • The subcategory name supports up to 64 characters. Only letters, digits, and () are allowed.
    • You can also use APIs to view, modify, delete, and bind files for category management.
    • You can add up to 4 levels of categories, meaning you cannot add subcategories for a level-4 category.
    • After adding a category for a video file, you can modify it on the Video Management page in the console. For details, please see Modifying Video Category.
    • By default, there is a category named "Others" on the Category Management page, and you cannot rename or delete it or add subcategories for it. After a category is deleted, the files in it will be categorized as "Others".

    Storage Region

    1. Log in to the VOD console, and click Upload Storage > Storage Region on the left sidebar.
    2. Toggle Status on for the target region to enable it. You can set an enabled region as the default region.
      Note:

      • You can enable multiple regions, but can set only one default region.
      • When a region is enabled, you cannot perform operations on it until it is successfully configured. Enabling a region takes effect in 5-10 minutes. Once enabled, a region cannot be disabled.

    Storage rules

    • If only the default region is enabled, all files will be stored in it.
    • If other regions are also enabled:
      • If an IP is within the upload storage range of a nearby enabled region, files will be uploaded to the region.
      • If an IP is outside the upload storage range of any enabled regions, files will be uploaded to the default region.
