Amazon S3: Allows Read and Write Access to Objects in an S3 Bucket

This example shows how you might create a policy that allows Read and Write access to objects in a specific S3 bucket. This policy grants the permissions necessary to complete this action from the AWS API or AWS CLI only. To use this policy, replace the red italicized text in the example policy with your own information.

The s3:*Object action uses a wildcard as part of the action name. The AllObjectActions statement allows the GetObject, DeleteObject, PutObject, and any other Amazon S3 action that ends with the word "Object".

{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Sid": "ListObjectsInBucket", "Effect": "Allow", "Action": ["s3:ListBucket"], "Resource": ["arn:aws:s3:::bucket-name"] }, { "Sid": "AllObjectActions", "Effect": "Allow", "Action": "s3:*Object", "Resource": ["arn:aws:s3:::bucket-name/*"] } ] }

Note

To allow Read and Write access to an object in an Amazon S3 bucket and also include additional permissions for console access, see Amazon S3: Allows Read and Write Access to Objects in an S3 Bucket, Programmatically and in the Console.
