Problem :

I want to delete the uploaded image files with the AWS-SDK-Core Ruby Gem.

I have the below code:

require 'aws-sdk-core'
def pull_picture(picture)
    Aws.config = {
        :access_key_id => ENV["AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID"],
        :secret_access_key => ENV["AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY"],
        :region => 'us-west-2'
    s3 = Aws::S3::Client.new
    test = s3.get_object(
        :bucket => ENV["AWS_S3_BUCKET"],
        :key => picture.image_url.split('/')[-2],   

But I am getting the below error:

The bucket you are attempting to access must be addressed using the specified endpoint. Please send all future requests to this endpoint.

I am sure that the region is correct as if I try to change it to us-east-1, the below error comes up:

The specified key does not exist.

May I know how can I resolve this issue?

Solution :

I had faced the similar kind of error in the recent past as my bucket was in region us-west-2 and my URL pattern had the bucketname in the path. When I changed my URL pattern to have bucketname as URL subdomain to grab the files and it just worked for me.

e.g. My previous URL was as follows:


Then I replaced it as follows :



I also have faced the same issue in the past. After a lot of research I found that the root cause of issue was with my com.amazonaws dependencies. After I added the dependencies my error got disappeared.
