Bucket permissions specify which users are allowed access to the objects in an S3 bucket and which permissions they have. For example, one user might have only read permission, while another might have read and write permissions.

To set permissions 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 to set permissions for.

  3. Choose Permissions.

    Then choose one of following:

    • To grant permissions to a person or group, choose Access Control Lists (ACLs). This is the default. For more information, see Access Control List (ACL) Overview in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.

    • To create or edit a bucket policy, choose Bucket Policy. In the Bucket policy editor, paste your bucket policy into the text box. For help generating a policy, use the Policy Generator. For examples of Amazon S3 bucket policies, see Bucket Policy Examples in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.

    • To create a cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) configuration, choose CORS configuration. For more information, see Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.
