Object owners

Like buckets, objects can have owners that correspond to HCP or AD user accounts. By default, if you’re an authenticated user, you own the objects you create in a bucket, regardless of whether you own the bucket. As the owner of the object, you have read, read ACL, write, write ACL, and delete permissions for that object.


If you’re not an authenticated user, the objects you create have no owner.

Access control lists



If you have write ACL and change owner permissions for a bucket, you can use HS3 to change the owner of any object in that bucket to a different user. To change the owner of an object, you use an ACL. For information on ACLS, see “Access control lists” below.


Users with the change owner data access permission for a bucket can use the HTTP protocol to change the owner of any object in the bucket to a different user. They can also change any object in the bucket to have no owner.
