XML error opening links from upwork

Hi all,

 

A client sent me links to images/files (not sure yet about the format) located on upwork (https://odesk-prod-att.s3.amazonaws.com, the rest of the link is removed) and I get the following error when trying to open them:

 

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

 

The error also includes the following notes: "AccessDenied" & "Request has expired".

 

You can check the atatched image for a screenshot of the issue.

 

Any idea what is causing this or how to fix it? I don't have access to the client side so I don't know what he is doing or where he is copying these links from.

 

Thanks!

I'm going to venture a guess and say the client made the S3 account on AWS. That error is from AWS and you don't have access to the S3 bucket. You should talk to your client about access to their S3 account.

Hi Tom,

 

If you open any picture in your portfolio in a new tab it will start with https://odesk-prod-att.s3.amazonaws.com, I was told by a guy on upwork that right clicking on the image and copying the link from there will provide you with a different link (starts with https://www.upwork.com) that does not expire, I informed the client and waiting to see if it works.

 

Will update you on this.

 

Thank you for the help!

Well I would have suspected that Upwork would have CDN'd that to 1) mask it's real URl and 2) to increase speeds for people over the globe.
Either way, it's probably due to trying to access it directly and thus missing any proper creds to the S3 account/bucket. Portfolios are meant for viewing not downloading that would mean anyone could download my portfolio which I wouldn't want at all.
