The upload storage settings in VOD consist of category management and storage region management, helping you manage the files in the console more conveniently.
Category Management Directions
- Log in to the VOD Console, and click Upload Storage > Category Management on the left sidebar to enter the "Category Management" page.
- Click Add Category to pop up the "Add Category" dialog box, enter the category name, and click OK.
- 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 an edit icon will appear to the right of the name. Then, click the icon to rename the category.
- Delete: click Delete in the row of the target category to delete it. If it contains a subcategory, you need to delete the subcategory first.
- Add a subcategory: click Add Subcategory and enter the subcategory name in the pop-up dialog box, and then click OK.
- The category name can contain up to 64 letters, digits, and ().
- In category management, you can also view, modify, delete, and associate files with categories.
- Category management supports a 4-level structure, and subcategories cannot be added for a level-4 category.
- After adding a category, you can also modify the category of a video file in the media assets section in the console. For more information, please see Modifying Video Categories.
- By default, there is a category named "Other" in category management, and you cannot rename or delete it or add subcategories for it. After a category is deleted, existing files in it will be categorized as "Other".
Storage Region Directions
- Log in to the VOD Console, and click Upload Storage > Storage Region on the left sidebar to enter the "Storage Region" page.
- Click the status button on the row of the target region to enable the region. An enabled region can be set as the default region.
- You can choose to enable multiple regions, but only one of them can be set as the default region.
- When a region is enabled, it cannot be manipulated until it is successfully configured. After the region is enabled, it will take 5–10 minutes to take effect.
- If you need to enable a region within Chinese mainland (such as Beijing, Tianjin, Chongqing, or Shanghai), please submit a ticket.
- If no other regions are enabled, all files will be transferred to the default region by default.
- If other regions have been enabled:
- If an IP is within the nearby upload storage range of the enabled region, files will be uploaded to the nearby enabled region.
- If an IP is outside the nearby upload storage range of the enabled region, files will be uploaded to the default region.
