Amazon S3

Configure your S3 bucket

Follow these steps to configure your Amazon S3 bucket to receive your Datastream feed:

  1. Log in to Amazon Web Services and create a new bucket for Chartbeat data files.

  2. Add the correct bucket policy to provide permissions for Chartbeat to access.

  3. Chartbeat needs the IAM role to have write access for the bucket. These actions are s3:PutObject, s3:GetObject, s3:ListBucket.

  4. Please find our S3 policy below. You will need to specify the name of your bucket in this policy to allow Chartbeat’s IAM role to access your bucket.

  5. Let us know when your S3 bucket policy is set up and the bucket name
