PutBucketVersioning - Amazon Simple Storage Service



This operation sets the versioning state only for S3 on Outposts buckets. To set the versioning state for an S3 bucket, see PutBucketVersioning in the Amazon S3 API Reference.

Sets the versioning state for an S3 on Outposts bucket. With versioning, you can save multiple distinct copies of your data and recover from unintended user actions and application failures.

You can set the versioning state to one of the following:

  • Enabled - Enables versioning for the objects in the bucket. All objects added to the bucket receive a unique version ID.

  • Suspended - Suspends versioning for the objects in the bucket. All objects added to the bucket receive the version ID null.

If you've never set versioning on your bucket, it has no versioning state. In that case, a GetBucketVersioning request does not return a versioning state value.

When you enable S3 Versioning, for each object in your bucket, you have a current version and zero or more noncurrent versions. You can configure your bucket S3 Lifecycle rules to expire noncurrent versions after a specified time period. For more information, see Creating and managing a lifecycle configuration for your S3 on Outposts bucket in the Amazon S3 User Guide.

If you have an object expiration lifecycle policy in your non-versioned bucket and you want to maintain the same permanent delete behavior when you enable versioning, you must add a noncurrent expiration policy. The noncurrent expiration lifecycle policy will manage the deletes of the noncurrent object versions in the version-enabled bucket. For more information, see Versioning in the Amazon S3 User Guide.

All Amazon S3 on Outposts REST API requests for this action require an additional parameter of x-amz-outpost-id to be passed with the request. In addition, you must use an S3 on Outposts endpoint hostname prefix instead of s3-control. For an example of the request syntax for Amazon S3 on Outposts that uses the S3 on Outposts endpoint hostname prefix and the x-amz-outpost-id derived by using the access point ARN, see the Examples section.
