Enable Object Lock on Existing Bucket
I would like to enable object locking on an existing bucket, but "You can only enable Object Lock for new buckets. If you want to turn on Object Lock for an existing bucket, contact AWS Support."
I contacted support (I do not have the upgraded tier plan with technical support) and I was brought here. Is there anyway this can be done, or must you pay the extra amount to get technical support to assist with the issue?
I have just looked up support center and there is no option to raise tickets related to S3 object lock though documentation asks to contact support. There is no support for services under basic support plan. However I would still suggest you try opening a case by selecting Service Limit Increase and Simple Storage Service. If you are able to open a ticket it may not reach the right team but you are likely to get support on further action or the right procedure. If you are unable to open a ticket then select Account and Billing support and then select General Info and Getting started and then select Using AWS and Services to open a new case. Opening some support case should help you get the right directions. Nothing wrong in opening cases as you have a few options to choose from in Basic support plan. Atleast you will get to know if you can enable object lock for existing buckets via support staff. Hope this helps. Please keep us posted of your progress so we can learn as well.
