How Do I Manage the Cross-Region Replication Rules for an S3 Bucket?

Cross-region replication is the automatic, asynchronous copying of objects across buckets in different AWS Regions. It replicates newly created objects, object updates, and object deletions from a source bucket to a destination bucket in a different Region.

You use the Amazon S3 console to add replication rules to the source bucket. Replication rules define the source bucket objects to replicate and the destination bucket where the replicated objects are stored. For more information about cross-region replication, see Cross-Region Replication in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.

You can manage replication rules on the Replication page. You can add, view, enable, disable, and delete the replication rules. For information about adding replication rules to a bucket, see How Do I Add a Cross-Region Replication (CRR) Rule to an S3 Bucket?.

To manage the cross-region replication rules for an S3 bucket

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon S3 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/s3/.

  2. In the Bucket name list, choose the name of the bucket that you want.

  3. Choose Management, and then choose Replication.

    
          Management tab with Replication button selected
  4. You change the replication rules in the following ways.

    • To change settings that affect all the replication rules in the bucket, choose Edit global settings.

      You can change the scope of the objects to be copied, the destination bucket, and the IAM role. If needed, you can copy the required bucket policy for cross-account destination buckets.

      You can set the scope to All contents (for all objects in the bucket) or Only objects with a specific prefix. If the scope is All contents, there can be only one rule. When you choose a different scope, the Replication wizard starts to help you make the change. For information about using the wizard, see How Do I Add a Cross-Region Replication (CRR) Rule to an S3 Bucket?.
