Getting Amazon S3 object tags through CloudFront distribution URL

0
  • We have a private S3 bucket to store images
  • We have created a CloudFront distribution to expose images in this private S3 bucket.
  • S3 bucket policy allows 'Read' access only for the CloudFront Identity.
  • Through the CloudFront URL, we are able to get list of objects/images in the bucket but this list does not have the S3 object tags in the response.
  • There is a different API to get tags for individual S3 objects: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/API/API_GetObjectTagging.html
  • We are unable to get this working through the CloudFront URL
  • How can we get access to S3 object tags through CloudFront distribution URL?

S3 object tags are not exposed through HTTP access. If you need to get object metadata the right way to do that is through the usage of "x-amz-meta-" metadata settings. You will be then able to see it in the response headers when you GET the object.
