How to rename a S3 bucket name?

Cloud Computing

I just realized there is no way to rename the S3 bucket form console. Is there any another way I can do that?



Ans: It is true that there is no option to rename a S3 bucket name functionality. This is because there are no folders in S3. This will need us to handle every every file that is present within the bucket.

However, you will need to create a new bucket, copy the contents from the newly created bucket and then delete the old bucket. All these steps can be performed in AWS CLI.
