Trigger S3 event notifications for objects in an s3 bucket

Utility to simulate S3 events without actually re-PUTing objects to S3.

Usage: s3touch <s3 path> [--topic <arn string>]

# touch a single object
s3touch s3://my-bucket/some-object

# touch all objects under a prefix
s3touch --recursive s3://my-bucket/some-prefix/

# touch a single object with custom SNS topic
s3touch s3://my-bucket/some-object --topic arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:1234:this-bucket-s3-events
  • Looks up SNS topic that is subscribed to the given S3 bucket,
  • Looks up information about some-object (size, etag),
  • and sends a simulated S3 event message to the SNS topic already set within the bucket or to the SNS topic explictly sent via the --topic flag


npm install -g s3touch
