This implementation of the PUT action adds an inventory configuration (identified by the inventory ID) to the bucket. You can have up to 1,000 inventory configurations per bucket.

Amazon S3 inventory generates inventories of the objects in the bucket on a daily or weekly basis, and the results are published to a flat file. The bucket that is inventoried is called the source bucket, and the bucket where the inventory flat file is stored is called the destination bucket. The destination bucket must be in the same Amazon Web Services Region as the source bucket.

When you configure an inventory for a source bucket, you specify the destination bucket where you want the inventory to be stored, and whether to generate the inventory daily or weekly. You can also configure what object metadata to include and whether to inventory all object versions or only current versions. For more information, see Amazon S3 Inventory in the Amazon S3 User Guide.


You must create a bucket policy on the destination bucket to grant permissions to Amazon S3 to write objects to the bucket in the defined location. For an example policy, see Granting Permissions for Amazon S3 Inventory and Storage Class Analysis.

To use this operation, you must have permissions to perform the s3:PutInventoryConfiguration action. The bucket owner has this permission by default and can grant this permission to others. For more information about permissions, see Permissions Related to Bucket Subresource Operations and Managing Access Permissions to Your Amazon S3 Resources in the Amazon S3 User Guide.

  • Bucket (string) --


    The name of the bucket where the inventory configuration will be stored.

  • Id (string) --


    The ID used to identify the inventory configuration.

  • InventoryConfiguration (dict) --

        • AccountId (string) --

          The account ID that owns the destination S3 bucket. If no account ID is provided, the owner is not validated before exporting data.


          Although this value is optional, we strongly recommend that you set it to help prevent problems if the destination bucket ownership changes.

        • Bucket (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the bucket where inventory results will be published.

        • Format (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          Specifies the output format of the inventory results.

        • Prefix (string) --

          The prefix that is prepended to all inventory results.
