S3 object lock on existing S3 objects?


Recently S3 launched a new feature around object lock where we can prevent individual objects from deletion from even the owner of the bucket for a specified period of time. This feature is only applicable for new objects uploaded. but what about the existing objects?

I have a lot of existing objects in my S3 bucket which I want to have object lock enabled on. What are the ways to achieve this?

Enabling S3 Object Lock

You can only enable Object Lock for new buckets. If you want to turn on Object Lock for an existing bucket, contact AWS Support.
