Amazon S3 Bucket name

I am using the Amazon S3: Create Bucket step. I am getting an error of duplicate name, although no one is using the name in our account.

Please note the following,

  • Bucket names must be unique in the Amazon S3 instance across the users.
  • An Amazon S3 bucket name is globally unique, and the namespace is shared by all AWS accounts. This means that after a bucket is created, the name of that bucket cannot be used by another AWS account in any AWS Region until the bucket is deleted.
