How can I create a space with public access to the files but without public file listing?

Posted June 26, 2019 3.2k views

I’m using the python boto3 library to create a bucket in DigitalOcean Spaces, and using ACL='public-read' I can allow public access to the files, but I’m not sure how to restrict listing of files. I see that there is an option in the web UI to do restrict listing of files, but it’s not clear how to do that via the API.

You should be able to set a bucket level ACL:

Using the AWS cli, the command would be:
aws --endpoint=https://$ put-bucket-acl --acl private --bucket $SPACE_NAME
