DELETE Bucket Policy

This DELETE operation uses the policy subresource to delete a specified bucket’s policy. For any identity other than the root user of the account that owns the bucket, the identity must have the DeleteBucketPolicy permissions on the specified bucket and belong to the bucket owner’s account to use this operation.

In the absence of DeleteBucketPolicy permissions, Zenko returns a 403 Access Denied error. If the permissions are correct, but you are not using an identity that belongs to the bucket owner’s account, Zenko returns a 405 Method Not Allowed error.


The root user of the AWS account that owns a bucket can always use this operation, even if the policy explicitly denies the root user the ability to perform this action.

For more information about bucket policies, see Using Bucket Policies and User Policies in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.
