Pre-signed URL

A pre-signed URL is a connection URL that is already authorized.

You can generate a pre-signed URL with an authorized user and use it with an unauthorized user to grant them access an object. The credentials of the pre-signed URL are of the authorized user who generated the URL. However, pre-signed URLs only offer temporary access for unauthorized users and eventually expire.

When generating a pre-signed URL, you can set the following parameters:

  • Bucket – bucket containing or will be containing the object
  • Key – object’s name
  • Expires – amount of time the URL is valid
