Recently I’ve encounter a problem that doesn’t allow me to delete the s3 buckets with the reason access denied. Edit the delete operation policy from Deny to Allow doesn’t work for me. I’ve found the following solution work for me.
Made sure is empty buckets
Please be sure the buckets is empty, that is important that you may accidently remove other files within the buckets.
Check the permission
From the S3 dashboard, click on the properties button, then click the permission and click the edit bucket policy. You’ll be prompt up a policy window, and now what we need to do is just click on the delete button at the bottom.
From you left window, select the bucket you’d like to delete. From the action button select the delete options. You’ll be prompt a window. Copy the bucket name and paste it into the textbox and click delete. Wait for few seconds it’s done.
