Abort a Multipart Upload

You can abort an in-progress multipart upload by calling the AmazonS3Client.abortMultipartUpload() method. This method deletes all parts that were uploaded to Amazon S3 and frees the resources. You provide the upload ID, bucket name, and key name.

The following example shows how to abort multipart uploads using the low-level Java API.

ListMultipartUploadsRequest allMultipartUploadsRequest = new ListMultipartUploadsRequest(bucketName); MultipartUploadListing multipartUploadListing = s3Client.listMultipartUploads(allMultipartUploadsRequest); List<MultipartUpload> uploads = multipartUploadListing.getMultipartUploads(); System.out.println("Before deletions, " + uploads.size() + " multipart uploads in progress."); // Abort each upload. for (MultipartUpload u : uploads) { System.out.println("Upload in progress: Key = \"" + u.getKey() + "\", id = " + u.getUploadId()); s3Client.abortMultipartUpload(new AbortMultipartUploadRequest(bucketName, u.getKey(), u.getUploadId())); System.out.println("Upload deleted: Key = \"" + u.getKey() + "\", id = " + u.getUploadId()); } // Verify that all in-progress multipart uploads have been aborted. multipartUploadListing = s3Client.listMultipartUploads(allMultipartUploadsRequest); uploads = multipartUploadListing.getMultipartUploads(); System.out.println("After aborting uploads, " + uploads.size() + " multipart uploads in progress."); } catch(AmazonServiceException e) { // The call was transmitted successfully, but Amazon S3 couldn't process // it, so it returned an error response. e.printStackTrace(); } catch(SdkClientException e) { // Amazon S3 couldn't be contacted for a response, or the client // couldn't parse the response from Amazon S3. e.printStackTrace(); } } }


Instead of aborting multipart uploads individually, you can abort all of your in-progress multipart uploads that were initiated before a specific time. This clean-up operation is useful for aborting multipart uploads that you initiated but that didn't complete or were aborted. For more information, see Abort Multipart Uploads.
