Setting Object Access Permission

Last updated: 2020-07-20 14:12:24


    COS allows you to configure access permissions for objects, which have a higher priority than that for buckets.

    • The access permission for an object is valid only when the user accesses said object via the default domain name. When access is made via a CDN acceleration endpoint domain name or custom domain name, the bucket access permission takes priority.
    • There are limits on the number of access policy rules that can exist at a given time. For details, see Specifications and Limits.


    1. Log in to the COS Console and click Bucket List on the left sidebar to enter the bucket list page.
    2. Find the bucket where the target object is located and click the bucket name to enter the bucket details page.
    3. In the [File List], find the object for which to configure access permission, and click [Details] on the right to enter the file details page (If it is a folder, click [Permissions] on the right).
    4. Scroll down to the [Object ACL] section near the top of the page and configure access permissions as needed (such as granting object permission to a sub-account, sub-account ID can be found on the Cloud Access Management console). COS supports two types of object permissions:
      • Public Permissions: Inherited permissions, private read/write, and public read/private write. For more information on public permissions, see Access Permission Types.
      • User Permissions: The root account has all object permissions (full access) by default. In addition, COS allows you to grant sub-accounts read/write permission for data and/or permission information and even allows full access permission to be granted to sub-accounts.
    5. Click [Save] to configure the object access permissions.
    6. If you need to configure or modify access permissions for multiple objects by performing a batch operation, you can check multiple objects from the file list and select [Modify Access Permissions] under [More Actions].
