How can I check if my bucket is private?

S3 buckets in Wasabi are created “private” by default. That means that bucket contents can be accessed, downloaded, or written to by sub-users who have appropriate permissions assigned to them via IAM policy or ACLs.

Customers may test to confirm that their respective buckets are “private” and simply enter the bucket URL in a new browser session.

All S3 buckets in Wasabi have a predictable URL, that looks like this:  

https://s3.us-east-1.wasabisys.com/[bucket_name]  or 
https://[bucket_name].s3.us-east-1.wasabisys.com/

Note that the above example discusses the bucket URL in Wasabi's us-east-1 storage region. Please use the appropriate Wasabi service URL as described in this article for buckets residing in other Wasabi regions

 

A private bucket that is NOT open to public access via Internet will return Access Denied:
