Use GetBucketLocation with an Amazon SDK or CLI

The following code examples show how to use GetBucketLocation.

Amazon CLI

The following command retrieves the location constraint for a bucket named my-bucket, if a constraint exists:

aws s3api get-bucket-location --bucket my-bucket


{ "LocationConstraint": "us-west-2" }
Tools for PowerShell

Example 1: This command returns the location constraint for the bucket 's3testbucket', if a constraint exists.

Get-S3BucketLocation -BucketName 's3testbucket'


Value ----- ap-south-1
  • For API details, see GetBucketLocation in Amazon Tools for PowerShell Cmdlet Reference.

SDK for Rust

There's more on GitHub. Find the complete example and learn how to set up and run in the Amazon Code Examples Repository.

async fn show_buckets(strict: bool, client: &Client, region: &str) -> Result<(), Error> { let resp = client.list_buckets().send().await?; let buckets = resp.buckets(); let num_buckets = buckets.len(); let mut in_region = 0; for bucket in buckets { if strict { let r = client .get_bucket_location() .bucket( .send() .await?; if r.location_constraint().unwrap().as_ref() == region { println!("{}",; in_region += 1; } } else { println!("{}",; } } println!(); if strict { println!( "Found {} buckets in the {} region out of a total of {} buckets.", in_region, region, num_buckets ); } else { println!("Found {} buckets in all regions.", num_buckets); } Ok(()) }
