    Hi Hanbing Song,


    Thanks for reaching out. Just to clarify a point you brought up, an external bucket and a Terra workspace bucket can be owned by the same user, but they cannot belong to the same billing project because it is not possible for external buckets to be tied to Terra billing projects.

    To access files in an external bucket, an owner or admin of the bucket will need to add your PROXY_Group (found in your Terra profile) to the bucket and give it the appropriate permissions. 

    For more information, please see the following support article: Accessing data from an external bucket.
