Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is an object storage service that provides scalable, secure, and highly available storage for any amount of data. Amazon S3 can be used for a variety of use cases, including data lakes, websites, mobile applications, backup and restore, archive, enterprise applications, IoT devices, and big data analytics. With Amazon S3, you can manage, organize, and configure access to your data to meet your specific business, organizational, and compliance requirements.
To learn more about Amazon S3 and its supported operations, visit AWS S3 | qibb Catalog.
How to get started with AWS S3 integration
Before using AWS S3 integration, make sure you have the necessary permissions for the operations.
You need an Access key, Secret access key, and Region information of your AWS account for authentication.
To list the access keys for an IAM user (console), sign in to the AWS Management Console, and open the IAM console. In the navigation pane, choose Users, select the user you want, and then choose the Security credentials tab.
If you don't have an Access key and Secret access key, create a new access key. Click the Create access key button, select Application running outside AWS, and click Next.
You can set an optional description tag in the next page. Click the Create access key button to continue.
Copy your Access key and Secret access key and save it for later use. Note that you can only copy the Secret access key on this page.
In the qibb Workflow Editor, open the Node Catalog in the right sidebar and install the AWS S3 node by clicking the + button.
Drag and drop the AWS S3 node from the left sidebar to your workflow.
Enter a valid TimePeriod in the Body to generate X-Amz-Security-Token in the Parameters field, and enter your Region, Access key, Secret access key credentials to Advanced/Security fields. Select any of the operations of the AWS S3 node and start using the integration!
If you're not familiar with AWS or the qibb Workflow Editor, we recommend consulting additional resources or seeking guidance from a technical expert to ensure that you set up the integration correctly.
Importing flow examples of a node
Once you've successfully installed a node from the qibb catalog, you can easily import example flows that showcase how the nodes can be used. These example flows are directly accessible within the Flow Editor and are designed to guide users with helpful hints, including how to configure mandatory parameters and credentials.
Here's how to import examples:
In the top right corner of the Flow Editor, click on the menu icon.
Select Import to open the Import Dialog.
Click on the Examples tab.
Choose an example from the list.
Confirm your selection by clicking on the Import button.
That's all there is to it! With these simple steps, you can start with examples which make basic API calls.
For further exploration of what’s possible, you can find more complex examples in the Flow Catalog.
