How to set permission of all files in a bucket as public on every upload.

I am accessing DigitalOcean Spaces with the help of AWS SDK. I am able to connect and upload file to the Spaces bucket. I’m uploading a directory with recursive directories and files using ‘TransferManager.uploadDirectory()’ method. Is there a way to set permission as public as a part of uploading instead of iterating and setting individual object permission in another API call. But I want to set permission of all files which I’m uploading as ‘public’. By default it is ‘private’.

I tried using AWS bucket policy … but it is not supporting in DO Spaces. Also everytime I upload files to that particular bucket, I want all those files to be public.

Kindly help me with this. I’m searching for a generic solution. I’m not getting any way around.

i’m using, here is what i did.

	endpoint := ""
	accessKeyID := "access-key"
	secretAccessKey := "secret-access-key"
	useSSL := true

	// Initialize minio client object.
	minioClient, err := minio.New(endpoint, accessKeyID, secretAccessKey, useSSL)
	if err != nil {

	// Upload the file
	bucketName := "indonesia"
	newImageName := uuid.NewV4()
	objectName := "indonesia.jpg"
        fileObject := bytes.NewReader(body)
	contentLength := r.ContentLength
	contentType := r.Header.Get("Content-type")
	cacheControl := "max-age=31536000"
       // make it public
	userMetaData := map[string]string{"x-amz-acl": "public-read"}

	n, err := minioClient.PutObject(bucketName, objectName, fileObject, contentLength, minio.PutObjectOptions{ContentType: contentType, CacheControl: cacheControl, UserMetadata: userMetaData})
	if err != nil {

You can take a look at my Github repo to get a easy solution:

You have to specify ACL as public-read in the request headers:

‘x-amz-acl’: ‘public-read’

I have the same proplem, , Did you know how to make all the bucket public

Same problem here. Using golang with Minio, but cannot set to public-read for file uploaded. Any update?
