Using S3 bucket as a file server for the public


We basically want to collect files from external customers into a file server.

We were thinking of using the S3 bucket as the file server that customers can interact with directly.

Is it possible to accomplish this where we create a bucket for each customer, and he can be given a link to the S3 bucket that also serves as the UI for him to drag and drop his files into directly?

i. He shouldn't have to log-in to AWS or create an AWS account

ii. He should directly interact with only his S3 bucket (drag-drop, add, delete files), there shouldn't be a way for him to check other buckets. We will probably create many S3 buckets for our customers in the same AWS account. His entry point into the S3 bucket UI is via a link (S3 bucket URL perhaps)

If such a thing is possible - would love some general pointers.

Hi, @ababuji

The S3 bucket has a function that allows you to use it without authentication by making public settings.

Also, some file upload tools support S3 buckets.
