Satya shows you how to
transfer S3 objects
to other AWS accounts


I want to transfer the ownership of Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) objects from one AWS account to a different account. How can I do that?

You can't transfer Amazon S3 resources between AWS accounts. Instead, you can copy Amazon S3 objects from one account to another so that you give ownership of the copied objects to the destination account. For instructions, see How can I copy S3 objects from another AWS account?

Warning: AWS Support can't copy Amazon S3 objects or manipulate any configuration options in AWS accounts. Additionally, you can't separate an AWS account from an account.
