[--retention <value>]

Options

--bucket (string)

The bucket name that contains the object you want to apply this Object Retention configuration to.

When using this action with an access point, you must direct requests to the access point hostname. The access point hostname takes the form AccessPointName -AccountId .s3-accesspoint.*Region* .amazonaws.com. When using this action with an access point through the Amazon Web Services SDKs, you provide the access point ARN in place of the bucket name. For more information about access point ARNs, see Using access points in the Amazon S3 User Guide .

--key (string)

The key name for the object that you want to apply this Object Retention configuration to.

--retention (structure)

The container element for the Object Retention configuration.

Mode -> (string)

Indicates the Retention mode for the specified object.

RetainUntilDate -> (timestamp)

The date on which this Object Lock Retention will expire.

Shorthand Syntax:

Mode=string,RetainUntilDate=timestamp

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Mode": "GOVERNANCE"|"COMPLIANCE",
  "RetainUntilDate": timestamp
}

--request-payer (string)

Confirms that the requester knows that they will be charged for the request. Bucket owners need not specify this parameter in their requests. For information about downloading objects from Requester Pays buckets, see Downloading Objects in Requester Pays Buckets in the Amazon S3 User Guide .

Possible values:

  • requester

--version-id (string)

The version ID for the object that you want to apply this Object Retention configuration to.

--bypass-governance-retention | --no-bypass-governance-retention (boolean)

Indicates whether this action should bypass Governance-mode restrictions.

--content-md5 (string)

The MD5 hash for the request body.

For requests made using the Amazon Web Services Command Line Interface (CLI) or Amazon Web Services SDKs, this field is calculated automatically.

--checksum-algorithm (string)

Indicates the algorithm used to create the checksum for the object when using the SDK. This header will not provide any additional functionality if not using the SDK. When sending this header, there must be a corresponding x-amz-checksum or x-amz-trailer header sent. Otherwise, Amazon S3 fails the request with the HTTP status code 400 Bad Request . For more information, see Checking object integrity in the Amazon S3 User Guide .

If you provide an individual checksum, Amazon S3 ignores any provided ChecksumAlgorithm parameter.

Possible values:

  • CRC32
  • CRC32C
  • SHA1
  • SHA256

--expected-bucket-owner (string)

The account ID of the expected bucket owner. If the bucket is owned by a different account, the request fails with the HTTP status code 403 Forbidden (access denied).

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To set an object retention configuration for an object

The following put-object-retention example sets an object retention configuration for the specified object until 2025-01-01.

aws s3api put-object-retention \
    --bucket my-bucket-with-object-lock \
    --key doc1.rtf \
    --retention '{ "Mode": "GOVERNANCE", "RetainUntilDate": "2025-01-01T00:00:00" }'

This command produces no output.

Output

RequestCharged -> (string)

If present, indicates that the requester was successfully charged for the request.
