By default, public use of a bucket, folder, or file is allowed only by certain paid (not trial) accounts. If your account does not have access to this feature, contact Wasabi Support at support@wasabi.com for assistance.

"Statement": [
"Sid": "AllowPublicRead", "Effect": "Allow", "Principal": {
"AWS": ""
"Action": [ "s3:GetObject", "s3:ListBucket"
"Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::bucket-public/myfolder/*"

After defining the policy, you can access files directly via either of these URLs:

  • YOURBUCKETNAME.s3.wasabisys.com/FILENAME<FolderName>
  • s3.wasabisys.com/YOURBUCKET/<FolderName>/FILENAME
