Parse Android fails to download image with a moved permanently error

I am getting the following exception when trying to download a ParseFile using


com.parse.ParseException: Download from S3 failed. Moved Permanently
at com.parse.ParseAWSRequest.onResponseAsync(ParseAWSRequest.java:43)

The ParseFile is a jpg which is uploaded and then put into a ParseObject called
. The
has several other parameters like caption, width, height which upload and download correctly. The image itself uploads correctly as confirmed through the dashboard. Only during the download I get the above exception.

This is my upload code

file.saveInBackground(new SaveCallback() {
public void done(ParseException e) {
if (e == null) {
Log.d(tag, "Successfully uploaded image file");

ParseObject image = new ParseObject("imageObject"); //Create new Image-ParseObject and set values
image.put("author", ParseUser.getCurrentUser());
image.put("imageFile", file);
image.put("caption", caption);

image.saveInBackground(new SaveCallback() {
public void done(ParseException e) {
Log.d(tag, "Successfully saved image file to object");
Log.d(tag, "Failed to save image file to object", e);
} else {
Log.d(tag, "Failed to save image", e);

my download code is pretty much
after I have retrieved all the
through a ParseQuery.

I Followed Line 43 of ParseAWSRequest.java and I found this,

if (statusCode >= 200 && statusCode < 300 || statusCode == 304) {
// OK
} else {
String action = method == ParseHttpRequest.Method.GET ? "Download from" : "Upload to";
return Task.forError(new ParseException(ParseException.CONNECTION_FAILED, String.format(
"%s S3 failed. %s", action, response.getReasonPhrase())));

This and the "Permanently removed" points to my nginx reverse proxy, which returns a 301 code in the redirect to https. Unfortunately I am not sure where to proceed from here.

Extra information,
I have blocked port 80(http) in the firewall for a test and it seems that for the download parse-android-sdk is trying to download from http. Which is odd because I have specified my parse-server link with "https", and the fact that upload is working fine. I can see the uploaded image using dashboard on my server.


  • Parse Server 2.2.13

  • Parse Android SDK 1.13.1

  • Parse Dashboard 1.0.14

I found a workaround to this issue just by directly downloading the file. I used ParseFile.getUrl() method to get the url and then use that to download and use the file.

In my case it was .jpg files. And then I used an external library that takes care of all the downloading/caching/loading into imageviews.

Both of these libraries work well
