Issue authenticating to AWS S3

Describe the problem/error/question

Despite being able to connect to S3 with my credentials, I am unable to download files from an S3 bucket. I am able to download the files with the AWS CLI using the same credentials. This looks like a duplicate of Issue with AWS S3 Authentication, but that issue was closed without any resolution.

My AWS credentials have pretty narrow permissions, so perhaps the AWS S3 node is doing something outside of what’s required?

What is the error message (if any)?

ERROR: Forbidden - perhaps check your credentials?

403 - Access Denied

Hi @jasony :wave: Sorry for the late reply here!

That would indeed look like an issue with your permissions - are you able to use something like Insomnia or Postman and get a different result with the same credentials for this bucket? :thinking: I know you mentioned the CLI, but I’m curious!
