CloudBerry Explorer for Google Storage: Sharing with Groups

Google Storage for Developers is a RESTful Service for Storing and Accessing Your Data on Google's Infrastructure

Google Storage for Developers is a RESTful service for storing and accessing your data on Google's infrastructure. The service combines the performance and scalability of Google's cloud with advanced security and sharing capabilities. Recently Google added a capability to share with groups, giving you greater flexibility over how you share your data.

Following the Google's announcement CloudBerry Lab added a support for sharing with groups in their CloudBerry Explorer.

To share content with a group select a bucket, folder or a file you want to share and click ACL Settings button on the toolbar or on the context menu. You will see an ACL Editor screen like the one below.

You will see the new group in the list. Grant the control type you want for this group (Full Control or Read). If you want the permission to propagate to all files and folders in a bucket check Apply for all subfolders and files option. Click ok.

By now all the members of the group should have a required access to your data. If you are wondering who to create a Google Group you should go to http://groups.google.com/ and create a group. This is just a Google discuss group and you can add anyone with a Google account to it.
