  1. Prerequisites
 
  • 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.

AWS can be accessed with root credentials or with IAM user credentials:
   
  • 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:

      AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJXYZCARVOIDSNTA
      AWSSecretKey=XdOWAHPU+IuxkAFMdxyzFMHgiNI6Xtvoid1CQ
       
    • 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.
