Deleting an access point - Amazon Simple Storage Service

Deleting an access point

Access points simplify managing data access at scale for shared datasets in Amazon S3. Access points are named network endpoints that are attached to buckets that you can use to perform Amazon S3 object operations, such as GetObject and PutObject. With S3 on Outposts, you must use access points to access any object in an Outposts bucket. Access points support only virtual-host-style addressing.
