Spaces: copyObject fails for keys with special characters

Posted July 23, 2019 1.1k views

I am trying to use the S3’s copyObject API on DO Spaces. However, this is failing if the source file has special characters like ’?’. I am using aws-js-sdk. The requests fail with ‘NoSuchKey’.

Request ID of one such failing request is tx0000000000000e06c9cb0-005d379c1b-23e283-sfo2a. I am trying to copy a file named 'whatever?’. I have tried percent encoding as well but that doesn’t help. FWIW, our code works on S3 itself.
