Connecting to AWS S3 from NiFi

Super Collaborator

Hi,

i am trying to connect to an AWS S3 bucket which i was given access to.

I got uid,pwd and a key from the owners. But in ListS3 processor i dont see those fields.

i see Access Key and Secret Key properties. Is Access key and password are same ? We dont have to put in a user name.? also is Region a must.?

do i need to specify just the bucket name for ex vendor-company-bucket or do i have to fully specify the URL like https://vendor-company-bucket.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com?

You need to provide your AWS Access Key and Secret Key, assuming that you are authorized to access the bucket. http://docs.aws.amazon.com/IAM/latest/UserGuide/id_credentials_access-keys.html

I have never used Nifi with S3 but my guess is that you wan to specify bucket name (not URL) and region like here https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/49467/integrating-apache-nifi-with-aws-s3-and-sqs.html, so what you did looks correct, just the AWS Access Key and Secret Key are missing.

You don't use username and pswd, you need access key and secret key. Admin of the S3 account can generate it (refer to https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/security/wheres-my-secret-access-key/)

Region and bucket are mandatory and you can see that when you access your S3 via web:

under "Services" menu go to "Storage->S3":
