Deletes the policy associated with the specified bucket.
Declaration Syntax
request (DeleteBucketPolicyRequest)
The DeleteBucketPolicyRequest that defines the parameters of the operation.
Return Value
Returns a DeleteBucketPolicyResponse from S3.

Only the owner of the bucket can delete the bucket policy. If you delete a policy that does not exist, Amazon S3 will return a success (not an error message).

Bucket policies provide access control management at the bucket level for both the bucket resource and contained object resources. Only one policy may be specified per-bucket.

For more information on forming bucket polices, see:


This example shows how to Get, Put and Delete bucket policies.
