GetObjectAccessControlPolicy (SOAP API)

Note

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.

The GetObjectAccessControlPolicy operation fetches the access control policy for an object.

This example retrieves the access control policy for the "Nelson" object from the "quotes" bucket.
