Creating a folder - Amazon Simple Storage Service

Creating a folder

This section describes how to use the Amazon S3 console to create a folder.

Important

If your bucket policy prevents uploading objects to this bucket without encryption, tags, metadata, or access control list (ACL) grantees, you will not be able to create a folder using this configuration. Instead, upload an empty folder and specify these settings in the upload configuration.

To create a folder

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon S3 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/s3/.

  2. In the Buckets list, choose the name of the bucket that you want to create a folder in.

  3. Choose Create folder.

  4. Enter a name for the folder (for example, favorite-pics). Then click Create folder.
