Example 2: Storing an object with custom metadata and an ACL


Here’s a sample PUT request that stores an object named hum_res/budget_proposals/BudgProp-2013 in the finance bucket, for which versioning is disabled. The object is stored with custom metadata specified by three

x-amz-meta- headers and a canned ACL specified by the x-amz-acl header.
