How to browse/manage/purge AWS S3 repository
We implemented AWS S3 repository in our application and can upload/download documents through our application. Is there a way to connect an S3 browser like Cloudberry https://www.cloudberrylab.com/explorer.aspx to the S3 instance for managing the repository for purposes of administrative purging to manage space?

Has anyone out there done any custom utility development in a Pega (7.4-8.1) application to provide this type of administrative management of documents without needing to open each case up to inspect? Is this even possible in PRPC with the S3 API?
Also, our cloud agreement states that 500GB storage is included, and that additional storage is available for purchase. How do we know how much of the storage is utilized to determine if/we we may need to purchase additional storage? Can the API handle his, or do we need to open a Pega Cloud ticket?
Pega Cloud team says that this capability is not part of the product today. We ended up creating a Java activity that deleted (purged) the repository (lower environment cleanup). There are API's that allow you to interrogate the repository, so today at least, you need to roll your own tools to manage the repo bucket, e.g. usage, ad-hoc search, etc.
