Authenticating S3 in Savant

Savant requires an Access Key ID and Secret Key in order to connect to S3.

First, log in and access the IAM console. Click your username in the top right and select Security Credentials. Scroll down and select Create access key.

This will generate a pop up window which contains your access key ID and access to your secret key. Save these both to another document for later. Your secret key can only be viewed and downloaded once, so make sure to save it in a safe location.

Now that you have your access key ID and secret access key you are ready to begin authenticating your system in Savant. From Savant's top menu bar, navigate to Data, then Systems and click New System.

Select Amazon S3 from the list of possible options and click Next.

Now enter your previously generated access key ID, secret key and the your user's region and click Authenticate. Give your system a name and description and click Next to configure your dataset.

Select your file type, number of files and paste the URL to your S3 file into the correct field and click Next. Your system is now authenticated and ready to be added as a dataset within Savant!

Connecting Data from S3

On the top left side of your canvas, click the Add Dataset button, shown below and select your S3 connection.

If you are not currently within an analysis, you can add your connection by navigating to Data and selecting New Dataset. Select your authenticated S3 system from the list of available options and click Next. Your S3 system is now added as a dataset within your analysis!

Publishing Data to S3

Once your analysis is complete and you're ready to port the data back to S3, navigate to the left side of your canvas and click the Add Destination button shown below.

Select your S3 destination from the selections below. If you need to add a new system as a destination, click New System and re-follow the authentication steps above to add your S3 system. Give your destination a name and description and click Next.

Now you will be greeted by your destination's configuration window.

Select your file type, input a folder link, and configure the file name and tab (if Excel), and hit apply.
