Working with Amazon S3 on Outposts access points

To access your Amazon S3 on Outposts bucket, you must create and configure an access point.

Access points simplify managing data access at scale for shared datasets in Amazon S3. Access points are named network endpoints that are attached to buckets that you can use to perform Amazon S3 object operations, such as GetObject and PutObject. With S3 on Outposts, you must use access points to access any object in an Outposts bucket. Access points support only virtual-host-style addressing.


The Amazon Web Services account that creates the Outposts bucket owns it and is the only one that can assign access points to it.

The following sections describe how to create and manage access points for S3 on Outposts buckets.
