Amazon S3 Cloud Storage
Your AWS administrator must create and configure a storage bucket that will be used to store your organizations recording data.
Amazon S3 uses buckets as containers to store your data. In fact every object stored in Amazon S3 resides in a bucket. When creating an Amazon S3 bucket you must also specify an AWS Region that is geographically close to you.
More information on S3 buckets can be found here.
Creating a bucket
Your AWS administrator must create and configure a storage bucket.
To create a bucket using the Amazon S3 console, see Creating a bucket in the Amazon Simple Storage Service User Guide.
Once your bucket has been successfully created and configured the name of this bucket must be entered in the Bucket Name property under the Auvious Storage Provider configuration page, as depicted below.
Access Key ID
To access and use AWS S3 storage Amazon recommends the use of unique user identities created through the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) console.
By creating individual IAM users, permissions for day-to-day interaction with AWS can be given when needed.
An AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user is an entity that you create in AWS to represent the person or application that uses it to interact with AWS. A user in AWS consists of a name and credentials.
AWS S3 storage is accessible through the use of an AWS Access Key. This Access Key consists of a combination of an Access Key ID and a Secret Access Key. For Auvious to be able to remotely access you S3 storage your AWS administrator must create your user IAM access key for this purpose.
After successfully creating the access key please enter the relevant Access Key ID property under the Auvious Storage Provider configuration page, as depicted below.
Secret Access Key
Upon creation of the IAM access key please ensure that the generated Secret Access Key has been saved temporarily. The Secret Access Key is only retrievable once upon creation, after which only the user's Access Key ID is visible.
Please enter the relevant Secret Access Key property under the Auvious Storage Provider configuration page, as depicted below.
In the next step please select the same AWS Region that was used when creating the S3 bucket, as depicted below.
Finally, under the Auvious Storage Provider configuration page, select the same AWS Region, as depicted below.
The following permissions need to be allowed on the bucket for the access key user:
Review & Test
In the final step you can review and go back to make any necessary corrections.
When you are ready, you can test your configuration to ensure that Auvious can successfully access your storage provider.
