Nodejs AWS SDK S3 Generate Presigned URL

0 votes

I am using the NodeJS AWS SDK to generate a presigned S3 URL. The docs give an example of generating a presigned URL.

Here is my exact code (with sensitive info omitted):

const AWS = require('aws-sdk')

const s3 = new AWS.S3()
AWS.config.update({accessKeyId: 'id-omitted', secretAccessKey: 'key-omitted'})

// Tried with and without this. Since s3 is not region-specific, I don't
// think it should be necessary.
// AWS.config.update({region: 'us-west-2'})

const myBucket = 'bucket-name'
const myKey = 'file-name.pdf'
const signedUrlExpireSeconds = 60 * 5

const url = s3.getSignedUrl('getObject', {
    Bucket: myBucket,
    Key: myKey,
    Expires: signedUrlExpireSeconds


The URL that generates looks like this:[access-key-omitted]&Expires=1470666057&Signature=[signature-omitted]

I am copying that URL into my browser and getting the following response:

  <Message>The specified bucket does not exist</Message>

I know the bucket exists. When I navigate to this item via the AWS Web GUI and double click on it, it opens the object with URL and works just fine:[bucket-name-omitted]/[file-name-omitted].pdf?X-Amz-Date=20160808T141832Z&X-Amz-Expires=300&X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Signature=[signature-omitted]&X-Amz-Credential=ASIAJKXDBR5CW3XXF5VQ/20160808/us-west-2/s3/aws4_request&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=Host&x-amz-security-token=[really-long-key]

So I am led to believe that I must be doing something wrong with how I'm using the SDK.

Your code is correct, double check following:

  1. Your bucket access policy.

  2. Your bucket permission via your API key.

  3. Your API key and secret.

  4. Your bucket name and key.
