Upload an object to an S3 on Outposts bucket

Objects are the fundamental entities stored in Amazon S3 on Outposts. Every object is contained in a bucket. You must use access points to access any object in an Outpost bucket. When you specify the bucket for object operations, you use the access point Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or the access point alias. For more information about access point aliases, see Using a bucket-style alias for your S3 on Outposts bucket access point.

The following example shows the ARN format for S3 on Outposts access points, which includes the Amazon Web Services Region code for the Region that the Outpost is homed to, the Amazon Web Services account ID, the Outpost ID, and the access point name:


For more information about S3 on Outposts ARNs, see Resource ARNs for S3 on Outposts.

With Amazon S3 on Outposts, object data is always stored on the Outpost. When Amazon installs an Outpost rack, your data stays local to your Outpost to meet data-residency requirements. Your objects never leave your Outpost and are not in an Amazon Web Services Region. Because the Amazon Web Services Management Console is hosted in-Region, you can't use the console to upload or manage objects in your Outpost. However, you can use the REST API, Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI), and Amazon SDKs to upload and manage your objects through your access points.

The following Amazon CLI and Amazon SDK for Java examples show you how to upload an object to an S3 on Outposts bucket by using an access point.

Amazon CLI

The following example puts an object named sample-object.xml into an S3 on Outposts bucket (s3-outposts:PutObject) by using the Amazon CLI. To use this command, replace each user input placeholder with your own information. For more information about this command, see put-object in the Amazon CLI Reference.

aws s3api put-object --bucket arn:aws-cn:s3-outposts:Region:123456789012:outpost/op-01ac5d28a6a232904/accesspoint/example-outposts-access-point --key sample-object.xml --body sample-object.xml
SDK for Java

The following example puts an object into an S3 on Outposts bucket by using the SDK for Java. To use this example, replace each user input placeholder with your own information. For more information, see Uploading objects.
