Amazon S3 Access Points now support the Copy API, allowing customers to copy data to and from access points within an AWS Region. S3 Access Points simplify managing data access at scale for applications using shared data sets on S3, such as usage and transaction logs for analytics, and post-processing. S3 Access Points are unique hostnames that you can create to enforce distinct and precise permissions and network controls for any request made through the access point.

S3 Access Points are useful for shared data sets accessed by different applications, teams and individuals, for analytics, machine learning, or real-time monitoring. S3 Access Points can now use the existing Copy API to copy data between access points within an AWS Region. With this addition of Copy API support, S3 Access Points support all major object-level operations, such as Get, Put, Copy, List, and Delete. The complete list of S3 APIs that are supported by S3 Access Points can be found in the S3 Access Points documentation.

You can create S3 Access Points, at no additional cost, on all S3 buckets through the S3 Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), the Application Programming Interface (API), and the AWS Software Development Kit (SDK) client. 

Amazon S3 Access Points with support for the Copy API are now available in all AWS Regions including the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions, the AWS China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
