Add AWS S3 Account

How to add an AWS Simple Storage Service (S3) account to Document

AWS S3 Setup

These steps need to be completed within the AWS console

  1. Sign into or create an Amazon Web Services (AWS) account
  2. Go to All services > Storage > S3 in the console
  3. Create a default or test bucket
  4. Go to All Services > Security Identity & Compliance > IAM > Users in the console
  5. Select the Create User button
  6. When prompted, enter a username and select Access Key - Programmatic access only. Select the Next: Permissions button.
  7. Select the option box called Attach existing policies directly
  8. In the filter search box type s3. When the list filters down to S3 related items select AmazonS3FullAccess by checking the box to the left. Select the Next: Tags button.
  9. Skip this step by selecting the Next: Review button
  10. Select the plus icon next to the WasabiFullAccess policy to attach the policy to the user. Select the Next button.
  11. Review the User settings and select Create user
  12. Capture the keys generated for the user by downloading the CSV or copy/pasting the keys somewhere for use later. You will not be able to retrieve this key again so keep track of it. If you need to regenerate a key simply go back to step 5 above.
