Deleting an object from an MFA delete-enabled bucket - 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.

Deleting an object from an MFA delete-enabled bucket

If a bucket's versioning configuration is MFA delete enabled, the bucket owner must include the x-amz-mfa request header in requests to permanently delete an object version or change the versioning state of the bucket. Requests that include x-amz-mfa must use HTTPS.

The header's value is the concatenation of your authentication device's serial number, a space, and the authentication code displayed on it. If you don't include this request header, the request fails.

For more information about authentication devices, see Multi-factor Authentication.
