Manage AWS S3 data stores with Appian! Users can access their S3 objects directly from an Appian interface. Appian documents can be uploaded to a S3 bucket with Server-Side Encryption and be configured as Public or Private. The AWS S3 Connected System Plug-in uses the AWS Java SDK to connect to S3. The following operations are included:
The list bucket operation should not assume that it has full access in AWS to do this. Security settings may prevent the client from having this permission (listing all buckets is a security risk in a shared account).
So, we are trying to use AWS S3 connected system. After providing Access Key ID,Region and Secret Access Key, we are getting Access Denied Error with 403 as error code.
After checking logs from AWS console, it seems on click of Test connection, Appian is making ListBucket request (which is to list all buckets available). Since, AWS is getting shared across other account and application they can't give full access to AWS S3.
Also, on Test Connection, we are not providing any specific bucket name.
Just for testing we change the access to Full Access on S3 and was able to connect but it is not advisable for security concerns.
Please let me know if ther is any other way to make it work.
The plugin will now only support Appian Version 19.3 and above. If on version 19.2 or less, then consider updating to 19.3 for Download Document functionality.
I am getting the error when adding the connected system to the application. Is anyone else facing the same? "Expression evaluation error [evaluation ID = CBN2NGXG] : Error creating bean with name 'plugin.[com.appian.ps.aws.s3.cst].[AWSS3ConnectedSystemTemplate]@2': Failed to introspect bean class"
When will the 19.2 version of this plugin be released? Without the ability to pull files back the utility of this plugin is very limited.
Did you find a solution for your problem? I have the same issue. I need to download the document from my S3 bucket.
If I need to use the HTTP file download smart service plugin to retrieve the file from S3, how do I perform the authentication? S3 requires requests to be authenticated using AWS signature, which the HTTP file download smart service doesn't explicitly support.
Great will do.
Hi mikec - check out Malcolm's 19.1 Product Announcement Webinar. He provides an example of how to use the Amazon S3 CSP https://youtu.be/aFWMleCLZLM?t=2648
Hello, I am interested in learning more about this app. Is there someone I could speak with; go through my use case and then possibly get some guidance on using? Thanks!
I've discovered why I was unable to connect. The Connected System needs access to the action s3:ListAllMyBuckets on buckets within the AWS account, so that the integration can pull the list of buckets to choose the bucket receiving uploads. Due to the fact that our policy only allows the action ListAllMyBuckets on the *contents* of the bucket bucketName, the bucket itself will not be allowed to be listed. (arn:aws:s3:::bucketName/* vs arn:aws:s3:::*)
I'm able to connect using my keys from CLI, however when I use the same key and secret key in the connected system, I get a 403 Access Denied status. This is when trying to connect to AWS GovCloud bucket. I am able to connect successfully to a bucket in US East Region. I believe I have the correct Region selected, as when testing the connection for other regions I receive a an InvalidAccessKey status instead of Access Denied.
Does anyone have any more information on what the proper IAM access to S3 looks like? I would imagine if I can connect via CLI, the connect system should also work. Has anyone successfully connected to a GovCloud instance?
What would be the object prefix for list object? i am able to get the bucket details but the object prefix doesn't seem to work for me
Ankur V currently we only provide the ability to list a bucket's objects, extract the url paths, and then use the url to download the file through Appian's HTTP File Download Smart Service docs.appian.com/.../HTTP_File_Download_Smart_Service.html
The Smart Service will handle the conversion to an Appian Document for you.
19.2 will support the ability to download and receive Appian Documents from the plug-in itself. I will keep you posted. Thank you!
19.1 version doesnt seem to have option to download from S3 bucket
