Intermittent SignatureDoesNotMatch while using presigned s3 url


Hello, I would appreciate your guidance on SignatureDoesNotMatch error thrown when trying to Put an object using presigned s3 url.

We have a .Net 6 microservice api, running on ecs cluster. The api running on the container gets its credentials for accessing the S3 bucket, from the task role assigned. We were getting intermittent errors of ExpiredToken. I believe there was a bug in the aws sdk version that is responsible for renewing the credentials before they expire, reference: ECSTaskCredentials refreshes too late · Issue #2498 · aws/aws-sdk-net (

We updated the awssdk.s3 version from to 3.7.305.30. and updated the role session to be a maximum of 12 hours, instead of the previous 1-hour session.

The client code in the api is as follows:

services.AddSingleton<IAmazonS3>(_ =>
				var s3Config = new AmazonS3Config
					RetryMode = RequestRetryMode.Standard,
					MaxErrorRetry = 5,
					SignatureVersion = "4",
					RegionEndpoint = awsContext.RegionEndpoint
				return new AmazonS3Client(s3Config);
GetPreSignedUrlRequest req = new GetPreSignedUrlRequest
					BucketName = bucketName,
					Key = objectKey,
					Expires = expires,
					Verb = HttpVerb.PUT,
					Protocol = Protocol.HTTPS
				req.Parameters.Add("x-amz-storage-class", storageClass);
				var preSignedUrl = _s3Client.GetPreSignedURL(req);

Now, we are getting SignatureDoesNotMatch error intermittently, while using the presigned url.

I would appreciate some guidance with this.
