Pass a stream to S3 putObject using AWS SDK for JavaScript v3

On a small side project I've been working on I needed to pass a stream to S3 putObject, however at first I couldn't get this to work.

The documentation suggests that body can accept a stream but I kept getting the following error:

NotImplemented: A header you provided implies functionality that is not implemented

In turns out that putObject does support a stream body, however, the length of the stream must be known. In my case I did not know the length of the stream.

Instead you can useUpload within @aws-sdk/lib-storage to get this working.

import { Stream } from 'stream';
import { S3 } from '@aws-sdk/client-s3';
import { Upload } from "@aws-sdk/lib-storage";

async function handler(): Promise<void> {
    const passThrough = new Stream.PassThrough();
    //code omitted for brevity

    const upload = new Upload({
        client: new S3({}),
        params: {
            Bucket: 'bucket-name',
            Key: 'key',
            Body: passThrough

    upload.on('httpUploadProgress', progress => console.log(progress));

    await upload.done();
