Send results to Amazon S3

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) stores customer data files of any size in many file formats.

This topic describes the steps that are required to send files to Amazon S3 from Amperity:

  1. Build a query

  2. Add orchestration

  3. Run orchestration

Note

Amazon S3 must be enabled before you can configure an orchestration to send query results. Ask your DataGrid Operator or Amperity representative to enable Amazon S3 for your tenant.

Build query

You will need to build a query, and then send the results to Amazon S3.

Add orchestration

An orchestration defines the relationship between query results and a destination, including the location to which those query results will be sent and the frequency at which the orchestration will be run.

To add an orchestration

  1. From the Destinations tab, click Add Orchestration. This opens the Add Orchestration dialog box.

  2. From the Object Type drop-down, select Query.

  3. From the Object drop-down, select the query for which results will be sent to Amazon S3.

  4. From the Destination drop-down, select a destination that is configured for sending data to Amazon S3.

  5. From the Data Template drop-down, select a data template.

  6. Verify all settings.

  7. Set the workflow to Manual. (You can change this to automatic later, after verifying the end-to-end workflow.)

  8. Click Save.

Run orchestration

Run the orchestration manually to validate that it works.

To run the orchestration

  1. From the Destinations tab, under Orchestrations, open the    menu for the Amazon S3 orchestration, and then select Run.

  2. The Status column for the orchestration will update to say “Waiting to start…”, after which the notifications pane will update to include a notification that shows the current status.

  3. When the orchestration has run successfully, the status is updated to “Completed”.
