Connecting to BackBlaze B2 storage
BackBlaze uses a variety of different account-related parameters when you connect to this service with a 3rd party app like Transmit.
- Account ID
- Master Application Key
- Application Key
- Application Key Id
To connect in Transmit, we require the use of one of the following two combinations when connecting to BackBlaze B2:
Master Application Key
Application Key IDand
1 is the most common method of connecting and gives Transmit the ability to see all buckets associated with your account. If you’re using BB2 as a personal backup solution, this is likely the option you want. You can pull up the required keys and IDs from the “Buckets” section of the BB2 web panel.
2 allows you to give Transmit the ability to see a single bucket instead of everything. Once your bucket settings and permissions are configured via BB2’s web panel, add the
Application Key ID to Transmit’s
Account ID field, and the
Application Key to the
Master Application Key field.
