Introduction

An Amazon connection is configured via the Amazon S3 connector to establish access to an account on the Amazon server. Once a connection is established, you can configure one or more Amazon S3 activities associated with that connection to use as a source or target within an operation.

Creating or Editing an Amazon S3 Connection

From the design canvas, open the Connectivity tab of the design component palette:

Connectivity tab

To configure a new Amazon S3 connection, within the Connectors filter, click the Amazon connector block:

Amazon S3 connection new

To configure an existing Amazon S3 connection, within the Endpoints filter, double-click the Amazon S3 connection block:

Amazon S3 connection existing

This will open a configuration screen for the Amazon S3 connection, covered next.
