DeleteBucketEncryption - Amazon Simple Storage Service


This implementation of the DELETE action resets the default encryption for the bucket as Amazon S3 managed keys (SSE-S3). For information about the Amazon S3 default encryption feature, see Amazon S3 Default Bucket Encryption in the Amazon S3 User Guide.

To use this operation, you must have permissions to perform the s3:PutEncryptionConfiguration action. The bucket owner has this permission by default. The bucket owner can grant this permission to others. For more information about permissions, see Permissions Related to Bucket Subresource Operations and Managing Access Permissions to your Amazon S3 Resources in the Amazon S3 User Guide.
