Additional settings available during bucket creation

The following settings are available:

Enable S3 Object Lock - check to activate the S3 Object Lock feature for the bucket. This feature ensures that stored objects within the bucket cannot be deleted or modified for a specified retention period, providing added data protection and regulatory compliance. This will also automatically enable versioning for the bucket.

Disable Access Control Lists (ACLs) - Starting from April 2023 all public access to new buckets is disabled by default. You may uncheck this option if you would like to make files publicly available in this bucket.

When disabled, S3 Browser sends the x-amz-object-ownership header set to ObjectWriter with the CreateBucket request, resulting in the buckets being created with the default object ownership configuration before April 2023.

If you do not plan to share files in the bucket, we recommend to keep this option checked for added security and data protection.

Block all public access to this bucket - Starting from April 2023 all public access to new buckets is disabled by default. You may uncheck this option if you would like to make files publicly available in this bucket.

When disabled, S3 Browser sends the DeletePublicAccessBlock request following the successful CreateBucket request. This results in the buckets being created with no public access block configuration, which was the default bucket state before April 2023

If you do not plan to share files in the bucket, we recommend to keep this option checked for added security and data protection.
