Setting S3 Object Ownership to bucket owner preferred in the AWS Management Console

S3 Object Ownership is currently under preview and can be configured through the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface, AWS SDKs, or Amazon S3 REST APIs. AWS CloudFormation support is planned for general availability.

S3 Object Ownership enables you to take ownership of new objects that other AWS accounts upload to your bucket with the bucket-owner-full-control canned access control list (ACL). This section describes how to set Object Ownership using the console.
