    Changing permissions

    Cyberduck can be used to update your bucket or object permissions.

    The example below shows how to adjust your bucket's permissions, but the steps are exactly the same to change an object's permissions.

    1. Connect Cyberduck to your bucket. A list of your buckets displays.
    2. Click the bucket name (or click an object within the bucket).
    3. Open the bucket's permissions.

      Mac

      cyberduck launch
      Click the bucket. Then click the gear icon. From the dropdown choose 'Info'. This opens a pop-up box.

      Windows

      Click the bucket. Then click the Get Info button. This opens a pop-up box.
    4. In the pop-up box, click the dropdown icon on the bottom left.
    5. From that dropdown, choose 'Everyone'.
    6. A new Grantee is listed. To the right of the 'Everyone' Grantee, click the box.
    7. Within this box, choose 'READ'.
    8. Finally, click the 'General' tab to ensure your new settings are saved.

    If you check your bucket or object permissions now, you'll see they are set to PUBLIC.
