Overview

Users can modify bucket access permissions in the console or via APIs. The COS Console by default supports two types of access permissions: Public Read/Private Write, and Private Read/Write.

  • Public Read/Private Write: anyone, including anonymous visitors has read permission to objects in the bucket. However, only the bucket creator and authorized accounts have write permission to objects in the bucket.
  • Private Read/Write: only the bucket creator and authorized accounts have read and write permissions to bucket files.

Setting Up Access Permissions

Users can select the access permission to a bucket when creating a bucket. Users can also modify the access permission to a bucket in Basic Configuration by following the steps below:

  1. Log in to the [COS console], click Bucket List from the left side bar, click the bucket (such as example) you want to modify access permission for, and enter the bucket detail page.
  2. Modify the access permission (for example, changing the bucket access permission from Public Read/Private Write to Private Read/Write), and click Save to complete the modification.
