Retrieving the requestPayment configuration using the REST API

You can determine the Payer value that is set on a bucket by requesting the resource requestPayment.

To return the requestPayment resource

  • Use a GET request to obtain the requestPayment resource, as shown in the following request.

    GET ?requestPayment HTTP/1.1 Host: [BucketName].s3.amazonaws.com Date: Wed, 01 Mar 2009 12:00:00 GMT Authorization: AWS [Signature]

If the request succeeds, Amazon S3 returns a response similar to the following.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK x-amz-id-2: [id] x-amz-request-id: [request_id] Date: Wed, 01 Mar 2009 12:00:00 GMT Content-Type: [type] Content-Length: [length] Connection: close Server: AmazonS3 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <RequestPaymentConfiguration xmlns="http://s3.amazonaws.com/doc/2006-03-01/"> <Payer>Requester</Payer> </RequestPaymentConfiguration>

This response shows that the payer value is set to Requester.
