The DeleteObjectRequest type exposes the following members


Public Method DeleteObjectRequest()


Public Property BucketName System.String The name of the bucket containing the object to delete.
Public Property Key System.String The key identifying the object to delete.
Public Property MfaCodes Amazon.S3.Model.MfaCodes The MfaCodes Tuple associates the Serial Number and the current Token/Code displayed on the Multi-Factor Authentication device associated with your AWS Account.
Public Property VersionId System.String The identifier for the specific version of the object to be deleted, if required.


This example shows how to delete an object.

DeleteObject sample

// Create a client
AmazonS3Client client = new AmazonS3Client();

// Create a DeleteObject request
DeleteObjectRequest request = new DeleteObjectRequest
    BucketName = "SampleBucket",
    Key = "Item1"

// Issue request



To remove a specific version, you must be the bucket owner and you must use the versionId subresource. Using this subresource permanently deletes the version.

If the object you want to delete is in a bucket where the bucket versioning configuration is MFA Delete enabled, you must include specify the MFA serial number and value in the request.

If there isn't a null version, Amazon S3 does not remove any objects.
