Set Data Retrieval Policy (PUT policy)

Description

This operation sets and then enacts a data retrieval policy in the region specified in the PUT request. You can set one policy per region for an AWS account. The policy is enacted within a few minutes of a successful PUT operation.

The set policy operation does not affect retrieval jobs that were in progress before the policy was enacted. For more information about data retrieval policies, see Amazon Glacier Data Retrieval Policies.

Requests

Syntax

To set a data retrieval policy, send an HTTP PUT request to the data retrieval policy URI as shown in the following syntax example.

Copy
PUT /AccountId/policies/data-retrieval HTTP/1.1 Host: glacier.Region.amazonaws.com Date: Date Authorization: SignatureValue Content-Length: Length x-amz-glacier-version: 2012-06-01 { "Policy": { "Rules":[ { "Strategy": String, "BytesPerHour": Number } ] } }

Note

The AccountId value is the AWS account ID. This value must match the AWS account ID associated with the credentials used to sign the request. You can either specify an AWS account ID or optionally a single '-' (hyphen), in which case Amazon Glacier uses the AWS account ID associated with the credentials used to sign the request. If you specify your account ID, do not include any hyphens ('-') in the ID.

Request Parameters

This operation does not use request parameters.

Request Headers

This operation uses only request headers that are common to all operations. For information about common request headers, see Common Request Headers.

Request Body

The request body contains the following JSON fields.

BytesPerHour

The maximum number of bytes that can be retrieved in an hour.

This field is required only if the value of the Strategy field is BytesPerHour. Your PUT operation will be rejected if the Strategy field is not set to BytesPerHour and you set this field.

Type: Number

Required: Yes, if the Strategy field is set to BytesPerHour. Otherwise, no.

Valid Values: Minimum integer value of 1. Maximum integer value of 2^63 - 1 inclusive.

Rules

The policy rule. Although this is a list type, currently there must be only one rule, which contains a Strategy field and optionally a BytesPerHour field.

Type: Array

Required: Yes

Strategy

The type of data retrieval policy to set.

Type: String

Required: Yes

Valid values: BytesPerHour|FreeTier|None. BytesPerHour is equivalent to selecting Max Retrieval Rate in the console. FreeTier is equivalent to selecting Free Tier Only in the console. None is equivalent to selecting No Retrieval Policy in the console. For more information about selecting data retrieval policies in the console, see Amazon Glacier Data Retrieval Policies.

Examples

Example Request

The following example sends an HTTP PUT request with the Strategy field set to BytesPerHour.

Copy
PUT /-/policies/data-retrieval HTTP/1.1 Host: glacier.us-west-2.amazonaws.com x-amz-Date: 20141123T120000Z x-amz-glacier-version: 2012-06-01 Authorization: AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 Credential=AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE/20141123/us-west-2/glacier/aws4_request,SignedHeaders=host;x-amz-date;x-amz-glacier-version,Signature=9257c16da6b25a715ce900a5b45b03da0447acf430195dcb540091b12966f2a2 { "Policy": { "Rules":[ { "Strategy":"BytesPerHour", "BytesPerHour":10737418240 } ] } }

The following example sends an HTTP PUT request with the Strategy field set to FreeTier.

Copy
PUT /-/policies/data-retrieval HTTP/1.1 Host: glacier.us-west-2.amazonaws.com x-amz-Date: 20141123T120000Z x-amz-glacier-version: 2012-06-01 Authorization: AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 Credential=AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE/20141123/us-west-2/glacier/aws4_request,SignedHeaders=host;x-amz-date;x-amz-glacier-version,Signature=9257c16da6b25a715ce900a5b45b03da0447acf430195dcb540091b12966f2a2 { "Policy": { "Rules":[ { "Strategy":"FreeTier" } ] } }

The following example sends an HTTP PUT request with the Strategy field set to None.

Copy
PUT /-/policies/data-retrieval HTTP/1.1 Host: glacier.us-west-2.amazonaws.com x-amz-Date: 20141123T120000Z x-amz-glacier-version: 2012-06-01 Authorization: AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 Credential=AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE/20141123/us-west-2/glacier/aws4_request,SignedHeaders=host;x-amz-date;x-amz-glacier-version,Signature=9257c16da6b25a715ce900a5b45b03da0447acf430195dcb540091b12966f2a2 { "Policy": { "Rules":[ { "Strategy":"None" } ] } }
