Why am I getting the OptionsRequestDenied error when I upload a file using the Amazon S3 console?

When I upload a file to my Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket using the Amazon S3 console, I get the error OptionsRequestDenied.


OptionsRequestDenied is a client-side error that might occur when you access your S3 bucket using the Amazon S3 console. Check the following points for your client:

  • Browser extensions: Ad blockers and similar extensions that are installed on a web browser might block traffic from Amazon S3.
  • Firewalls: Any proxies or firewalls on your client might block traffic from Amazon S3.
  • Network connectivity problems: An intermittent network connection problem might interrupt the connection to Amazon S3.

Tip: To isolate your client's issue, upload files using an AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) command instead. For example, use aws s3 cp. If you receive errors when you run AWS CLI commands, make sure that you’re using the most recent version of the AWS CLI.
