Admin UI
The Quilt catalog includes an admin panel that allows you to manage users and buckets in Quilt, as well as customize the Quilt catalog. You can access the panel via a dropdown menu under username in the navbar.
The admin page is only accessible to designated administrators. The first admin is set during the CloudFormation installation. Subsequent admins may be designated through the panel. Only admins may create other admins.
Quilt requires at least one admin account per stack.

Users and roles

This section provides comprehensive access control management for the follwing functions:
  • Create/Delete user
  • De/activate user
  • De/admin user
  • Assign roles to users
You may invite new users to your Quilt stack by clicking the + button, upper right.
You may create custom roles for different groups of users. With the exception of administrators, users of managed roles are only aware of the buckets that they are permitted to read. All other stack buckets are invisible to users of managed roles.
You must select the default role for all new users, else they will not be able to sign in to the Quilt catalog. The default role is shown in bold.


Here you can add or remove buckets from Quilt and configure bucket indexing and display settings.

S3 events

By default, when you add a bucket to the Quilt stack one of two things will happen:
  1. 1.
    If there is no existing bucket notification, Quilt will attempt to add a new notification
  2. 2.
    If there is an existing bucket notification, Quilt will use the existing notification if and only if it supports the required events (object creation and deletion)
If either of the above conditions fails, Quilt will not add the bucket in question.


This section allows you to customize your Quilt catalog, including custom links in the navbar.
