Last Updated: 02/21/2019 Introduced in Version:

Amazon Web Services’ S3 offers cloud-based storage that can be integrated with your system. Files that are stored on Amazon S3 can be monitored and listed with one Put File in S3 Step. To list the files in your Amazon S3 account, first set up your Amazon Web services Settings in the portal by installing AWS.

Install AWS

Install AWS: Navigate to System>Administration>Features. On the right side of the Designer Studio locates Amazon Web services (AWS) and select Install.  Scroll down under Available Features locate and select AWS and choose Install. 


Edit Settings

After Amazon Webservices is installed,  Navigate from the Designer Folders to System>Settings> Decisions AWS. 

Right-click and select Edit to add Access Key and Key ID. 

Choose your Default Region and enter the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key and select Save. 



 Start by creating a new Flow, select Create Flow in the blue action panel across the bottom of the Designer Studio.

In the Steps Tab locate Integration, Amazon AWS> S3, choose Put file In S3, drag and drop step into Flow Designer. 


SettingsIn the Properties Tab under Common Properties and under Inputs>Bucket Name set to Constant and add your Amazon S3 File, Bucket Name. Under Inputs> File set to Constant and upload or drag and drop File.  Under Inputs > local File To Store choose Constant and name the File. Under Inputs> Region set to Constant and define its Value. This Region must match the Region that was set previously in the Default Region when Editing Amazon Webservices. Set the Region the appropriate Region code, in this example we used us-east-1. Last, under Outputs and Output choose Rename and set the value to PutFileInS3_Output.
