Configuring block public access settings for your account - Amazon Simple Storage Service

Configuring block public access settings for your account

Amazon S3 Block Public Access provides settings for access points, buckets, and accounts to help you manage public access to Amazon S3 resources. By default, new buckets, access points, and objects do not allow public access.

For more information, see Blocking public access to your Amazon S3 storage.

You can use the S3 console, AWS CLI, AWS SDKs, and REST API to configure block public access settings for your all the buckets in your account. For more information, see the sections below.

To configure block public access settings for your buckets, see Configuring block public access settings for your S3 buckets. For information about access points, see Performing block public access operations on an access point.

Amazon S3 block public access prevents the application of any settings that allow public access to data within S3 buckets. This section describes how to edit block public access settings for all the S3 buckets in your AWS account. For more information about blocking public access, see Blocking public access to your Amazon S3 storage.

  • To perform block public access operations on an account, use the AWS CLI service s3control. The account-level operations that use this service are as follows:

    • PUT PublicAccessBlock (for an account)

    • GET PublicAccessBlock (for an account)

    • DELETE PublicAccessBlock (for an account)

For additional information and examples, see put-public-access-block in the AWS CLI Reference.

Java

The following examples show you how to use Amazon S3 Block Public Access with the AWS SDK for Java to put a public access block configuration on an Amazon S3 account. For instructions on how to create and test a working sample, see Using the AWS SDK for Java.

AWSS3ControlClientBuilder controlClientBuilder = AWSS3ControlClientBuilder.standard(); controlClientBuilder.setRegion(<region>); controlClientBuilder.setCredentials(<credentials>); AWSS3Control client = controlClientBuilder.build(); client.putPublicAccessBlock(new PutPublicAccessBlockRequest() .withAccountId(<account-id>) .withPublicAccessBlockConfiguration(new PublicAccessBlockConfiguration() .withIgnorePublicAcls(<value>) .withBlockPublicAcls(<value>) .withBlockPublicPolicy(<value>) .withRestrictPublicBuckets(<value>)));
Important

This example pertains only to account-level operations, which use the AWSS3Control client class. For bucket-level operations, see the preceding example.

Other SDKs
