SubmitMultiRegionAccessPointRoutes - Amazon Simple Storage Service
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).



This operation is not supported by directory buckets.

Submits an updated route configuration for a Multi-Region Access Point. This API operation updates the routing status for the specified Regions from active to passive, or from passive to active. A value of 0 indicates a passive status, which means that traffic won't be routed to the specified Region. A value of 100 indicates an active status, which means that traffic will be routed to the specified Region. At least one Region must be active at all times.

When the routing configuration is changed, any in-progress operations (uploads, copies, deletes, and so on) to formerly active Regions will continue to run to their final completion state (success or failure). The routing configurations of any Regions that aren’t specified remain unchanged.


Updated routing configurations might not be immediately applied. It can take up to 2 minutes for your changes to take effect.

To submit routing control changes and failover requests, use the Amazon S3 failover control infrastructure endpoints in these five Amazon Web Services Regions:

  • us-east-1

  • us-west-2

  • ap-southeast-2

  • ap-northeast-1

  • eu-west-1

Sample request for initiating failover

In the following example, the request to submit these routing changes to initiate a failover is sent to the failover control infrastructure in the us-east-1 Region. In this example, the eu-north-1 Region is set to active, and the ap-northeast-3 Region is set to passive. In other words, the ap-northeast-3 Region is failed over to the eu-north-1 Region.

PATCH /v20180820/mrap/instances/<Multi-Region Access Point>/routes HTTP/1.1 Host: <SubmitMultiRegionAccessPointRoutesRequest> <RouteUpdates> <Route> <Region>eu-north-1</Region> <Bucket>example-bucket-eu-north-1</Bucket> <TrafficDialPercentage>100</TrafficDialPercentage> </Route> <Route> <Region>ap-northeast-3</Region> <Bucket>example-bucket-ap-northeast-3</Bucket> <TrafficDialPercentage>0</TrafficDialPercentage> </Route> </RouteUpdates> </SubmitMultiRegionAccessPointRoutesRequest>

Sample request for setting a Region to active status

The following request updates the route configuration of the eu-north-1 Region to active. The request is sent to the failover control infrastructure in the eu-west-1 Region.

PATCH /v20180820/mrap/instances/<Multi-Region Access Point>/routes HTTP/1.1 Host: <SubmitMultiRegionAccessPointRoutesRequest> <RouteUpdates> <Route> <Region>eu-north-1<Region> <Bucket>example-bucket-eu-north-1</Bucket> <TrafficDialPercentage>100</TrafficDialPercentage> </Route> </RouteUpdates> </SubmitMultiRegionAccessPointRoutesRequest>
