BackBlaze B2 - cannot use new feature "multiple application keys"

Post by moudsen »

Hi,

Backblaze has released a new feature where one can have multiple Application Keys on top of the Master Application Key.
Example use case: restriction on bucket access for individual keys.

https://www.backblaze.com/b2/docs/application_keys.html

Currently SyncBackPro v8.5.75.0 does not seem to support this, resulting in a 401 error when trying to use this new feature.
Note: access through the Master Application Key is not affected.

Would it be possible to add this new feature to SyncBackPro?

Happy to answer on use cases and "reasons why" if required.

Hi,

Note that the latest release version (SyncBackPro V8.5.75.0) supports application keys in Backblaze B2, which allows access to a specific bucket. Therefore, we need a support zip with debug logs of the program to investigate on the 401 error. Can you please submit a support ticket to [email protected] for instructions to create a support zip.

Thank you.

I've managed to get this working, but it needs to be documented carefully somewhere:
When creating the APPLICATION KEY this key gets its own ID, called APPLICATION ID.
Instead of entering the MASTER KEY (associated to ACCOUNT ID), the APPLICATION KEY ID must be entered! :P

Your program asks for ACCOUNT ID, which I have found confusing. I would suggest to rename to APPLICATION ID or to add a note referring to this.
Works like a charm from here. =D>

Kind regards, Mark
