Upload an Object to an S3 Bucket Using a Pre-Signed URL (AWS SDK for .NET)

The following C# example shows how to use the AWS SDK for .NET to upload an object to an S3 bucket using a pre-signed URL. For more information about pre-signed URLs, see Uploading Objects Using Pre-Signed URLs.

This example generates a pre-signed URL for a specific object and uses it to upload a file. For information about the example's compatibility with a specific version of the AWS SDK for .NET and instructions about how to create and test a working sample, see Running the Amazon S3 .NET Code Examples.

using Amazon.S3; using Amazon.S3.Model; using System; using System.IO; using System.Net; namespace Amazon.DocSamples.S3 { class UploadObjectUsingPresignedURLTest { private const string bucketName = "*** provide bucket name ***"; private const string objectKey = "*** provide the name for the uploaded object ***"; private const string filePath = "*** provide the full path name of the file to upload ***"; // Specify your bucket region (an example region is shown). private static readonly RegionEndpoint bucketRegion = RegionEndpoint.USWest2; private static IAmazonS3 s3Client; public static void Main() { s3Client = new AmazonS3Client(bucketRegion); var url = GeneratePreSignedURL(); UploadObject(url); } private static void UploadObject(string url) { HttpWebRequest httpRequest = WebRequest.Create(url) as HttpWebRequest; httpRequest.Method = "PUT"; using (Stream dataStream = httpRequest.GetRequestStream()) { var buffer = new byte[8000]; using (FileStream fileStream = new FileStream(filePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)) { int bytesRead = 0; while ((bytesRead = fileStream.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)) > 0) { dataStream.Write(buffer, 0, bytesRead); } } } HttpWebResponse response = httpRequest.GetResponse() as HttpWebResponse; } private static string GeneratePreSignedURL() { var request = new GetPreSignedUrlRequest { BucketName = bucketName, Key = objectKey, Verb = HttpVerb.PUT, Expires = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(5) }; string url = s3Client.GetPreSignedURL(request); return url; } } }
