Writing data to your Amazon S3 requires a few simple steps to get you started.
1. Create an S3 Bucket
2. Configure S3 in Toric
3. Export Data to S3
Before jumping into Toric, you must set up a few things in Amazon Web Services (AWS).
First, you must create an Amazon account using Amazon Web Services (AWS). Log in or create an account with AWS Management Console. After you're done creating your account, come back to this article and follow step 1.2.
Once your account is created, you will need to create an S3 storage bucket. For a step-by-step guide, please follow Step 1: Create your first S3 bucket. After creating an S3 bucket, come back and follow step 1.3.
Let's create a new user with the Identity and Access management (IAM) service. Once your user is created, you can generate a new Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.
Enter a name and check the box for Access key. Then click the Next button for steps 1 to 5.
Note: Please save your Secret Access Key ID as this is generated only once at user creation. We recommend using a tool like 1Password to store your passwords and credentials.
Finally, create a new permission policy to assign your new user to the Identity and Access management (IAM) service. Once your user is created, you can generate a new Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.
Login to Toric and follow these steps to setup an S3 Connector:
Type a unique name for your S3 connector.
Note: It's best practice to give your configuration the same name as your S3 bucket.
Paste the name of your S3 bucket.
Paste the server region of your S3 bucket.
Paste your S3 user Access Key.
Paste your S3 user Secret Access Key.
Use the Validate Configuration button to make sure all fields are completed correctly. Invalid fields will be highlighted in red, and a successful validation will show in green.
Click on Add Configuration to finalize the creation of your Azure Blob Storage connector.
Open a Dataflow, add the S3 Export node, and select your configuration.
Note: Remember, your Bucket name and Configuration name should be the same.
Once the export is completed you should find your new data in AWS S3.
