๐Ÿ”Setting up filebase

Logging into filebase

To start using filebase as an IPFS provider in MGS, you need to first register your account. If you already have an account, you can directly go to https://console.filebase.com. If you donโ€™t, follow these steps:

  • To sign up for a filebase account, navigate to https://filebase.com. To create a new account, click the โ€˜Try for Freeโ€™ button in the top right corner of the webpage.

  • Next, fill out the form fields, including an email address and password, and agree to the filebase terms to create your account.

  • You will receive an email with confirmation instructions. Click the link included in the email to confirm your account and complete the registration process. Once finished, you can access the Dashboard Console.

Buckets

Buckets are like file folders; they store data and associated metadata. Buckets are containers for objects. Navigate to the Buckets dashboard by clicking on the โ€˜Bucketsโ€™ menu option. Here you can view your existing buckets and create new ones.

If you already have the Bucket you wish to use with MGS, skip this step. To create a new bucket, click the โ€˜Create Bucketโ€™ button in the top right corner of the webpage, enter the name for the new bucket, and click the โ€˜Create Bucketโ€™ button.

If successful, you will be redirected to the Bucket dashboard with your newly created bucket.

Access Keys

The Access Keys menu option leads you to the access keys dashboard. Here you can view, manage, and rotate your access keys. From this menu, you can also generate a Secret Access Token to be used with MGS. To generate this token, click the dropdown menu for 'Choose Bucket to Generate Token', then select the IPFS filebase Bucket you intend to use.

Copy the generated Secret Access Token.
