Amazon Glacier Customizations#
A client for Amazon Glacier MUST set the
X-Amz-Glacier-Version header to
the value of the service shape's
version property for all requests.
Default value for accountId#
Many operations in Amazon Glacier have an
accountId member that is bound
to the URI. Customers can specify the string "-" to indicate that the
account making the request should be used. Since this is what customers
usually want, clients SHOULD set this value by default.
Default checksum generation#
When uploading an archive as part of the UploadArchive or UploadMultipartPart
headers MUST be set. Since the logic for computing these headers is static,
clients SHOULD populate them by default. See computing checksums for details
on how to calculate the values for these headers.
