AWS::S3Express::BucketPolicy - Amazon CloudFormation
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


Applies an Amazon S3 bucket policy to an Amazon S3 directory bucket.


If you are using an identity other than the root user of the Amazon Web Services account that owns the bucket, the calling identity must both have the required permissions on the specified bucket and belong to the bucket owner's account in order to use this operation. For more information about directory bucket policies and permissions, see Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) for S3 Express One Zone in the Amazon S3 User Guide.


To ensure that bucket owners don't inadvertently lock themselves out of their own buckets, the root principal in a bucket owner's Amazon Web Services account can perform the GetBucketPolicy, PutBucketPolicy, and DeleteBucketPolicy API actions, even if their bucket policy explicitly denies the root principal's access. Bucket owner root principals can only be blocked from performing these API actions by VPC endpoint policies and Amazon Organizations policies.

The required permissions for CloudFormation to use are based on the operations that are performed on the stack.
