- An Amazon Web Services (AWS) account.
- At least one AWS S3 bucket defined.
- Authorization credentials, which consist of a Key ID and a Secret Key.
2. Generate AWS Credentials
AWS can be accessed with root credentials or with IAM user credentials:
- To use IAM user credentials go to http://docs.aws.amazon.com/java-sdk/latest/developer-guide/signup-create-iam-user.html, which describes how to create an IAM user and its access key. Save both the Access Key ID and the Secret Key to be used when setting up a Diplomat transaction. You must also ensure that you have granted the IAM user sufficient permissions.
- To use root credentials:
- Login to your AWS account and then go to the Security Credentials page.
- Click 'Access Keys'.
- Click 'Create New Access Key'.
- Click 'Download Key File'.
- A file called rootkey.csv will be downloaded. Its contents will look like:
- Copy and paste the string 'AKIAJXYZCARVOIDSNTA' into Diplomat's 'Key ID' field.
- Copy and paste the string 'XdOWAHPU+IuxkAFMdxyzFMHgiNI6Xtvoid1CQ' into Diplomat's 'Secret Key' field.
Refer to this KB article for details.
