In this tutorial, you will learn how to integrate an S3 bucket with an S3 client. All you have to do is make a note of the required details available on the platform and use them to configure your S3 client.

 

An S3 bucket is a storage system designed for saving large volumes of applicationdata (such as archives, backups, IoT, AI, DevOps, etc.) using a Web API. This tutorial will explain how to integrate/connect a bucket with these applications in a standard way through an API.

Step 2. Configure the S3 client to connect to your bucket.

 

When configuring an S3 client (e.g. CyberDuck), it is important to differentiate between two types of users. There is the OWNER and, then there are the rest of the users who have access.

 

The OWNER has direct access and will not need to configure anything. They automatically have access. The remaining users, however, will need to fill in the Path field as they do not have direct access and will not be redirected.

 

 

Once you have made a note of all the necessary details, you can proceed to configure your S3 client.
