put-object-tagging

Description

Sets the supplied tag-set to an object that already exists in a bucket.

A tag is a key-value pair. You can associate tags with an object by sending a PUT request against the tagging subresource that is associated with the object. You can retrieve tags by sending a GET request. For more information, see GetObjectTagging .

For tagging-related restrictions related to characters and encodings, see Tag Restrictions . Note that Amazon S3 limits the maximum number of tags to 10 tags per object.

To use this operation, you must have permission to perform the s3:PutObjectTagging action. By default, the bucket owner has this permission and can grant this permission to others.

To put tags of any other version, use the versionId query parameter. You also need permission for the s3:PutObjectVersionTagging action.

For information about the Amazon S3 object tagging feature, see Object Tagging .

Special Errors
    • Code: InvalidTagError
    • Cause: The tag provided was not a valid tag. This error can occur if the tag did not pass input validation. For more information, see `Object Tagging <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/object-tagging.html>`__ .
    • Code: MalformedXMLError
    • Cause: The XML provided does not match the schema.
    • Code: OperationAbortedError
    • Cause: A conflicting conditional action is currently in progress against this resource. Please try again.
    • Code: InternalError
    • Cause: The service was unable to apply the provided tag to the object.

Options

--bucket (string)

The bucket name containing the object.

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 .

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

--key (string)

Name of the object key.

--version-id (string)

The versionId of the object that the tag-set will be added to.

--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

--tagging (structure)

Container for the TagSet and Tag elements

TagSet -> (list)

A collection for a set of tags

(structure)

A container of a key value name pair.

Key -> (string)

Name of the object key.

Value -> (string)

Value of the tag.

Shorthand Syntax:

TagSet=[{Key=string,Value=string},{Key=string,Value=string}]

JSON Syntax:

{
  "TagSet": [
    {
      "Key": "string",
      "Value": "string"
    }
    ...
  ]
}

--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).

--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

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

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.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To set a tag on an object

The following put-object-tagging example sets a tag with the key designation and the value confidential on the specified object.

aws s3api put-object-tagging \
    --bucket my-bucket \
    --key doc1.rtf \
    --tagging '{"TagSet": [{ "Key": "designation", "Value": "confidential" }]}'

This command produces no output.

The following put-object-tagging example sets multiple tags sets on the specified object.

aws s3api put-object-tagging \
    --bucket my-bucket-example \
    --key doc3.rtf \
    --tagging '{"TagSet": [{ "Key": "designation", "Value": "confidential" }, { "Key": "department", "Value": "finance" }, { "Key": "team", "Value": "payroll" } ]}'

This command produces no output.

Output

VersionId -> (string)

The versionId of the object the tag-set was added to.
