This is a strange situation I am experiencing. I made an AMI which can download a Version’s media from Shotgun’s Amazon S3 storage. The AMI seems to download media without issues at our studio’s building. However, if I work from home via a VPN then I encounter the below error randomly when attempting to download media:
https://sg-media-usor-01.s3-accelerate.amazonaws.com/…(rest of URL has sensitive info)
HTTP Error 403: Forbidden
The error seems to increase as the selected number versions increases. For example, I had no issue downloading 4 iterations of 25 versions (total of 100 unique versions) simultaneously via the AMI but a single selection of the same 100 Versions had some failures.
I could probably get around this issue by enhancing my tool to retry N times if the exception is detected. Just wondering if the issue is experienced by others.
PS - Currently I can’t perform tests without being connected to a VPN. Just in-case anyone wonders if the issue happens without VPN.
Thanks, Adam Chrystie
