Managing ACLs in the AWS Management Console

AWS Management Console provides a UI for you to grant ACL-based access permissions to your buckets and objects. The Properties pane includes the Permissions tab where you can grant ACL-based access permissions. The following screen shot shows the Permissions for a bucket.

It shows the list of grants found in the bucket ACL. For each grant, it shows the grantee and a set of check boxes showing the permissions granted. The permission names in the console are different than the ACL permission names. The preceding illustration shows the mapping between the two.

The preceding illustration shows a grantee with FULL_CONTROL permissions; note that all the check boxes are selected. All the UI components shown, except the Add bucket policy link, relate to the ACL-based permissions. The UI allows you to add or remove permissions. To add permissions, click Add more permissions, and to delete a permission, highlight the line and click X to the right of it. When you are done updating permissions, click Save to update the ACL. The console sends the necessary request to Amazon S3 to update the ACL on the specific resource.

For step-by-step instructions, go to Editing Object Permissions and Editing Bucket Permissions in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Console User Guide.
