DeleteObject (SOAP API)
SOAP support over HTTP is deprecated, but it is still available over HTTPS. New Amazon S3 features will not be supported for SOAP. We recommend that you use either the REST API or the AWS SDKs.
DeleteObject operation removes the specified object from Amazon S3. Once deleted, there is no method to restore or undelete an object.
If you delete an object that does not exist, Amazon S3 will return a success (not an error message).
This example deletes the "Nelson" object from the "quotes" bucket.
<DeleteObject xmlns="http://doc.s3.amazonaws.com/2006-03-01"> <Bucket>quotes</Bucket> <Key>Nelson</Key> <AWSAccessKeyId> AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE</AWSAccessKeyId> <Timestamp>2006-03-01T12:00:00.183Z</Timestamp> <Signature>Iuyz3d3P0aTou39dzbqaEXAMPLE=</Signature> </DeleteObject>
<DeleteObjectResponse xmlns="http://s3.amazonaws.com/doc/2006-03-01"> <DeleteObjectResponse> <Code>200</Code> <Description>OK</Description> </DeleteObjectResponse> </DeleteObjectResponse>
Bucket:The bucket that holds the object.
Key:The key that identifies the object.
You can delete an object only if you have
WRITE access to the bucket, regardless of who owns the object or what rights are granted to it.
