Amazon S3 Writeback Connector

Intro

Amazon S3 is an online file storage web service offered by Amazon Web Services that you can use to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. Use this connector to export your data from a Domo DataSet to an Amazon S3 Bucket. To learn more about the Amazon S3 API, visit their page (http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/...I/Welcome.html).

You export data to S3 in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Domo to S3 Writeback connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To configure this connector, you will need the following:

  • A Domo Client ID and Client Secret. To obtain these credentials, do the following:

    1. Log into your Domo developer account at https://developer.domo.com/login

    2. Create a new client

    3. Select the desired data and user application scope.

    4. Click Create.

  • Your AWS access key. You can find this in the Security Credentials section of the AWS Console. Alternatively, if you are using IAM, you can find it under Users.

  • Your AWS secret key, which was provided when you created your access key. You can generate a new secret key in the AWS Console.

  • The name of the AWS S3 Bucket you want to push data to.

Configuring the Connection

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Domo to S3 Writeback Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Domo developer account as well as your S3 bucket. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Access Key

Secret Key
