ReplicationRule - Amazon Simple Storage Service


Specifies which Amazon S3 objects to replicate and where to store the replicas.



A container for information about the replication destination and its configurations including enabling the S3 Replication Time Control (S3 RTC).

Type: Destination data type

Required: Yes


Specifies whether the rule is enabled.

Type: String

Valid Values: Enabled | Disabled

Required: Yes


Specifies whether Amazon S3 replicates delete markers. If you specify a Filter in your replication configuration, you must also include a DeleteMarkerReplication element. If your Filter includes a Tag element, the DeleteMarkerReplication Status must be set to Disabled, because Amazon S3 does not support replicating delete markers for tag-based rules. For an example configuration, see Basic Rule Configuration.

For more information about delete marker replication, see Basic Rule Configuration.


If you are using an earlier version of the replication configuration, Amazon S3 handles replication of delete markers differently. For more information, see Backward Compatibility.

Type: DeleteMarkerReplication data type

Required: No


Optional configuration to replicate existing source bucket objects. For more information, see Replicating Existing Objects in the Amazon S3 User Guide.

Type: ExistingObjectReplication data type

Required: No


A filter that identifies the subset of objects to which the replication rule applies. A Filter must specify exactly one Prefix, Tag, or an And child element.

Type: ReplicationRuleFilter data type

Required: No


A unique identifier for the rule. The maximum value is 255 characters.

Type: String

Required: No


This member has been deprecated.

An object key name prefix that identifies the object or objects to which the rule applies. The maximum prefix length is 1,024 characters. To include all objects in a bucket, specify an empty string.


Replacement must be made for object keys containing special characters (such as carriage returns) when using XML requests. For more information, see XML related object key constraints.

Type: String

Required: No


The priority indicates which rule has precedence whenever two or more replication rules conflict. Amazon S3 will attempt to replicate objects according to all replication rules. However, if there are two or more rules with the same destination bucket, then objects will be replicated according to the rule with the highest priority. The higher the number, the higher the priority.

For more information, see Replication in the Amazon S3 User Guide.

Type: Integer

Required: No


A container that describes additional filters for identifying the source objects that you want to replicate. You can choose to enable or disable the replication of these objects. Currently, Amazon S3 supports only the filter that you can specify for objects created with server-side encryption using a customer managed key stored in AWS Key Management Service (SSE-KMS).

Type: SourceSelectionCriteria data type

Required: No
