Digital Ocean Buckets

  • We have to use the command line interface to change the default policy of the digital ocean spaces bucket.
  • Install awscli tool.
brew install awscli
  • Once install is finished, put the access key and secret to configure the cli, keep remaining things same.
aws configure
  • Check if you are able to reach the bucket or not? Replace your endpoint url with your bucket regional endpoint url.
 aws s3 ls --endpoint-url=
  • It should return the bucket list. If not then configure with the access id and secret again.

  • Now create a file named policy.json in the root directory where terminal is running.

// policy.json

  "Version": "2008-10-17",
  "Statement": [
      "Sid": "AddPerm",
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Principal": "*",
      "Action": "s3:GetObject",
      "Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::<NAME_OF_BUCKET>/*"
  • Replace the name of bucket with your bucket name.

  • Now put the policy file to change the acl policy of the aws bucket.

aws s3api --endpoint= put-bucket-policy --bucket <NAME_OF_BUCKET>  --policy file://policy.json
