Recently I have been working in Personal Health Management App where medical record can be saved as image. For my production server I have used AWS S3 Bucket. The problem I have faced I can’t see the image from my mobile app due to aws s3 bucket policy restriction. So I have need to set my AWS S3 bucket policy.

There is a lot of AWS Bucket Policy. You can generate your policy using AWS Policy Generator. AWS S3 allows us to set permission on file basis or per bucket. In my case I need to make my bucket publicly readable for everyone. To set this you need to follow the below instruction:

  • Go to your AWS Management Console and you will see your buckets(see the image) AWS S3 Bucket)

  • Select the bucket you wanna make public readable. Click the top permission tab and select below Bucket Policy tab(see the image). AWS S3 Bucket Policy Tab)

  • Paste following code in the Bucket Policy Modal and save it.

  "Version": "2008-10-17",
  "Statement": [
      "Sid": "AllowPublicRead",
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Principal": {
        "AWS": "*"
      "Action": [
      "Resource": [

Don’t forget to put your bucket name in your-bucket-name option:

  • After save the bucket policy you will see that your bucket public(see the image). AWS S3 Bucket Policy Tab)
