Setting Versioning

Last updated: 2019-09-30 17:37:02


    With versioning, you can store multiple versions of an object in a bucket and retrieve, delete, or restore a specified version. This can help you recover from data loss caused by accidental deletion or application failure.

    • Once versioning is enabled for the bucket, it cannot be disabled. However, you can suspend versioning to stop object versioning.
    • After versionning is enabled, newly uploaded objects will generate multiple versions and take up storage space, so these versions of the object will also charge for storage.


    1. Log in to the COS Console and click Bucket List in the left sidebar to enter the bucket list page.
    2. Click the bucket to be configured to enter the bucket details page.
    3. Click Advanced Configuration on the left to enter the advanced configuration page of the bucket, scroll down to Versioning, and click Edit on the right.
    4. Click Enable in “Status” and save the change. In the pop-up window, click OK to enable versioning. When you no longer need versioning, you can simply click Disable to disable it.
