  6. Enter the following DreamObjects credentials which can be found on the (Panel > ‘Cloud Services’ > ‘DreamObjects’) page:
      • Display Name – A unique name you wish to display
      • Access Key – Use the Access Key found under the username on the DreamObjects page for the specific bucket name
      • Secret Key – Use the Secret Key found to the left of the Access Key on the DreamObjects page (also known as the password)
      • Service Point – Use objects-us-east-1.dream.io

    This article uses the new DreamObjects cluster of 'objects-us-east-1.dream.io'. If you have an older DreamObjects account and have not migrated your data yet, your hostname may need to point to 'objects-us-west-1.dream.io instead. Please review the following migration article for further details.

    After entering the required information, users are able to both access existing buckets and create new ones.

    The new DreamObjects account now appears on the ‘Select Backup Storage’ window:
