Short description:

Long Description:
 

This Action also works when accessing the web through a PROXY server: Please consult the section 5.1.8.2. for more details on this subject.

 

To be able to connect to your S3 bucket storage, you need to get from Amazon these 4 parameters:
 

your “Bucket Name”

your “Region”  

your “Access Key ID”

your “Secret Access Key”

 

 

The procedure to get these 4 parameters is:
 

1.Open the URL address http://aws.amazon.com/s3  in a browser and click on the “Sign In to the Console” button on the top-right corner of the window:

2.Inside the search field, type “s3” to locate the “S3 service” and press Enter to access the “S3 management console”:

 

clip0499

 

 

3.Inside the “S3 management console”, you get the first 2 required parameters for Anatella: the “Bucket Name” and the “Region”. In the screenshot below, there are two S3 buckets named “test-bucket-timi” and “test-bucket-timi2”: number1

The “Region Name” of these two S3 buckets is, respectively, “EU (Paris)” and “US East (Ohio)”: number2  Inside Anatella, you don’t need the “Region Name”: i.e. you need to have the “Region” parameter. To get the “Region” parameter, from the “Region Name”, you can use the lookup table located at this URL:

 

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/rande.html

 

 
 For your convenience, here is a local copy of this lookup table:
