To answer the second question first, Spaces does not currently support “lifecycle” events. So unfortunately you can not use expiration tags at this time.

For the question in the title, uploading an object to Spaces using boto3 requires that you edit the endpoint setting for the session. Here’s a quick example:

import boto3

session = boto3.session.Session()
client = session.client('s3',
                        region_name='nyc3',
                        endpoint_url='https://nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com',
                        aws_access_key_id='ACCESS_KEY',
                        aws_secret_access_key='SECRET_KEY')

client.upload_file('/path/to/file.ext',  # Path to local file
                   'my-space',  # Name of Space
                   'file.ext')  # Name for remote file
