SetBucketLoggingStatus (SOAP API) - Amazon Simple Storage Service

SetBucketLoggingStatus (SOAP API)


SOAP support over HTTP is deprecated, but it is still available over HTTPS. New Amazon S3 features will not be supported for SOAP. We recommend that you use either the REST API or the AWS SDKs.

The SetBucketLoggingStatus operation updates the logging status for an existing bucket.

For a general introduction to this feature, see Server Logs.


This sample request enables server access logging for the 'mybucket' bucket, and configures the logs to be delivered to 'mylogs' under prefix 'access_log-'
