Creating Bucket in AWS


Amazon S3 is cloud storage for the internet. To upload your data (photos, videos, documents etc…), you first create a bucket in one of the AWS Regions. You can then upload any number of objects to the bucket.


Creating Bucket

Login into AWS Portal AWS Console Login

The moment you login to console you can see search Tab under AWS Services under “All Services” Search for S3 under Storage….



Click S3



Click Create bucket

Below are the steps to follow creating bucket

1: Name and Region

2: Set Properties

3: Set Permissions

Let’s discuss Step by Step

Click Next


2: Set Properties which contains


Versioning enables you to keep multiple versions of an object in one bucket.

Server Access Logging

Server access logging provides detailed records for the requests that are made to a bucket. Server access logs are useful for many applications. For example, access log information can be useful in security and access audits. It can also help you learn about your customer base and understand your Amazon S3 bill.



To track the storage cost or other criteria for individual projects or groups of projects, label your Amazon S3 buckets using cost allocation tags. A cost allocation tag is a key-value pair that you associate with an S3 bucket. After you activate cost allocation tags, AWS uses the tags to organize your resource costs on your cost allocation report. Cost allocation tags can only be used to label buckets.


Object-Level Logging (or) Data Events

Data events provide insight into the resource operations performed on or within a resource. These are also known as data plane operations. Data events are often high-volume activities.

Example data events include:

  • Amazon S3 object-level API activity (for example, GetObject, DeleteObject, andPutObject API operations)
  • AWS Lambda function execution activity (the Invoke API)


Note: This is cost oriented

Default Encryption

Amazon S3 default encryption provides a way to set the default encryption behavior for an S3 bucket. You can set default encryption on a bucket so that all objects are encrypted when they are stored in the bucket. The objects are encrypted using server-side encryption with either Amazon S3-managed keys (SSE-S3) or AWS KMS-managed keys (SSE-KMS).

We are leaving as default as this is for testing purpose….
