Adding or editing an access point policy

Access points have distinct permissions and network controls that Amazon S3 on Outposts applies for any request that is made through that access point. Each access point enforces a customized access point policy that works in conjunction with the bucket policy that is attached to the underlying bucket. For more information, see Access points.

The following topics show you how to add or edit the access point policy for your S3 on Outposts access point by using the Amazon Web Services Management Console, Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI), and Amazon SDK for Java.

  1. Open the Amazon S3 console at

  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Outposts buckets.

  3. Choose the Outposts bucket that you want to edit the access point policy for.

  4. Choose the Outposts access points tab.

  5. In the Outposts access points section, choose the access point whose policy you want to edit, and choose Edit policy.

  6. Add or edit the policy in the Outposts access point policy section. For more information, see Setting up IAM with S3 on Outposts.

The following Amazon CLI example puts a policy on an Outposts access point.

  1. Save the following access point policy to a JSON file. In this example, the file is named appolicy1.json. Replace the user input placeholders with your own information.

    { "Version":"2012-10-17", "Id":"exampleAccessPointPolicy", "Statement":[ { "Sid":"st1", "Effect":"Allow", "Principal":{ "AWS":"123456789012" }, "Action":"s3-outposts:*", "Resource":"arn:aws-cn:s3-outposts:region:123456789012:outpost/op-01ac5d28a6a232904/accesspoint/example-outposts-access-point } ] }
  2. Submit the JSON file as part of the put-access-point-policy CLI command. Replace the user input placeholders with your own information.

    aws s3control put-access-point-policy --account-id 123456789012 --name arn:aws-cn:s3-outposts:region:123456789012:outpost/op-01ac5d28a6a232904/accesspoint/example-outposts-access-point --policy file://appolicy1.json

The following SDK for Java example puts a policy on an Outposts access point.

import*; public void putAccessPointPolicy(String accessPointArn) { String policy = "{\"Version\":\"2012-10-17\",\"Id\":\"testAccessPointPolicy\",\"Statement\":[{\"Sid\":\"st1\",\"Effect\":\"Allow\",\"Principal\":{\"AWS\":\"" + AccountId + "\"},\"Action\":\"s3-outposts:*\",\"Resource\":\"" + accessPointArn + "\"}]}"; PutAccessPointPolicyRequest reqPutAccessPointPolicy = new PutAccessPointPolicyRequest() .withAccountId(AccountId) .withName(accessPointArn) .withPolicy(policy); PutAccessPointPolicyResult respPutAccessPointPolicy = s3ControlClient.putAccessPointPolicy(reqPutAccessPointPolicy); System.out.printf("PutAccessPointPolicy Response: %s%n", respPutAccessPointPolicy.toString()); printWriter.printf("PutAccessPointPolicy Response: %s%n", respPutAccessPointPolicy.toString()); }
