#7205 closed enhancement (fixed)

/vsis3/: anonymous access would be wishable

Reported by: Even Rouault Owned by: Even Rouault
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.3.0
Component: default Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: vsis3


VSIS3 requests fail if no authentication is set). It is desirable to add an option to disable request signing for use with public buckets (aws-cli has -no-sign-request which works in this case).

Just came across this after struggling to access a public dataset with GDAL. The AWS_NO_SIGN_REQUEST=YES option works, but I'm wondering: would it make sense to just assume AWS_NO_SIGN_REQUEST=YES if AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY and AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID are undefined?

I'd rather use plain /vsicurl/ with the full URL for public resource.
