DELETE Bucket policy

Description

This implementation of the DELETE operation uses the policy subresource to delete the policy on a specified bucket. To use the operation, you must have DeletePolicy permissions on the specified bucket and be the bucket owner.

If you do not have DeletePolicy permissions, Amazon S3 returns a 403 Access Denied error. If you have the correct permissions, but are not the bucket owner , Amazon S3 returns a 405 Method Not Allowed error. If the bucket doesn't have a policy, Amazon S3 returns a 204 No Content error. There are restrictions about who can create bucket policies and which objects in a bucket they can apply to. For more information, go to Using Bucket Policies.
