Hi there @mittalyashu,

I believe that in general S3 isn’t really designed to allow this.

Usually, you would have to download the file, unzip it and then upload the extracted files.

However, what you could do instead is use s3fs and mount the S3 bucket as a local filesystem. That way you could use the usual UNIX tools and unzip the file directly, the operations will be hidden behind the filesystem interface.

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
