Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Example 1: To create a pre-signed URL with the default one hour lifetime that links to an object in an S3 bucket

The following presign command generates a pre-signed URL for a specified bucket and key that is valid for one hour.

aws s3 presign s3://DOC-EXAMPLE-BUCKET/test2.txt

Output:

https://DOC-EXAMPLE-BUCKET.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com/key?X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Credential=AKIAEXAMPLE123456789%2F20210621%2Fus-west-2%2Fs3%2Faws4_request&X-Amz-Date=20210621T041609Z&X-Amz-Expires=3600&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=EXAMBLE1234494d5fba3fed607f98018e1dfc62e2529ae96d844123456

Example 2: To create a pre-signed URL with a custom lifetime that links to an object in an S3 bucket

The following presign command generates a pre-signed URL for a specified bucket and key that is valid for one week.

aws s3 presign s3://DOC-EXAMPLE-BUCKET/test2.txt \
    --expires-in 604800

Output:

https://DOC-EXAMPLE-BUCKET.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com/key?X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Credential=AKIAEXAMPLE123456789%2F20210621%2Fus-west-2%2Fs3%2Faws4_request&X-Amz-Date=20210621T041609Z&X-Amz-Expires=604800&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=EXAMBLE1234494d5fba3fed607f98018e1dfc62e2529ae96d844123456
