Just connect to
sftp.orbit.brightbox.com using your Brightbox email address and password, or your API client identifier and secret.
$ sftp firstname.lastname@example.org@sftp.orbit.brightbox.com email@example.com@sftp.orbit.brightbox.com's password: Connected to sftp.orbit.brightbox.com. sftp> ls container1 container2 images
If you are a collaborator on multiple accounts, then you can specify the account by adding the account identifier to the end of the username, separated with a colon:
$ sftp firstname.lastname@example.org:email@example.com
If your API Client is an “Orbit Storage Only” client then it won’t have privileges to actually get a list of containers, even the ones it has access to read or write, so they won’t show up in the list but you can still
chdir into them:
$ sftp firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com's password: Connected to sftp.orbit.brightbox.com. sftp> ls sftp> cd container1 sftp> ls object1 object2 object3
SFTP gives you convenient access to data stored in Orbit, but if you’re integrating Orbit into your system, we recommend that you use the OpenStack Swift-compatible HTTP interface rather than SFTP. The HTTP interface is higher performance and supports the full Orbit feature-set, such as managing metadata and configuring access control.
