Registering Amazon S3 cloud account

You must have valid Amazon S3 credentials to register the cloud account with Replication Manager.

When you add cloud credentials for your Amazon S3 account, you can choose one of the following authentication methods:
  • Access secret key. To use this authentication type, you require an AWS Access Key and an AWS Secret key that you obtain from Amazon. Cloudera Manager stores these values securely and does not store them in world-readable locations. The credentials are masked and encrypted in the configurations passed to processes managed by Cloudera Manager, and redacted from the logs.
  • IAM role. Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) can be used to create users, groups, and roles for use with Amazon Web Services, such as EC2 and Amazon S3. IAM role-based access provides the same level of access to all clients that use the role.
  1. In the Replication Manager UI navigation pane, click Cloud Credentials > Add
  2. In the Add Cloud Credential window, perform the following tasks:
    1. Select the Cluster.
    2. Select S3 as the Cloud Storage Type.

    5. If you select IAM Role, click Save to proceed.

    7. Secret Key - Enter the valid secret key.
  3. Click Validate.
Verify whether the credentials are listed on the Cloud Credentials page.
