mc share download command generates a temporary presigned URL with
integrated access credentials for downloading objects from a MinIO bucket. The
temporary URL expires after a configurable time limit.
Applications can perform a
GET to retrieve the object from the URL.
Users can open the URL in a browser to download the object.
For more information on shareable object URLs, see the Amazon S3 documentation on Pre-Signed URLs.
The following command generates a new presigned download URL for the
mydata bucket on the
myminio MinIO deployment:
mc share download --recursive myminio/mydata
The command has the following syntax:
mc [GLOBALFLAGS] share upload \ [--expire "string"] \ [--recursive] \ [--version-id "string"] \ ALIAS

The mc commandline tool is built for compatibility with the AWS S3 API and is tested MinIO and AWS S3 for expected functionality and behavior.
MinIO provides no guarantees for other S3-compatible services, as their S3 API implementation is unknown and therefore unsupported. While mc commands may work as documented, any such usage is at your own risk.
