This topic explains how to configure read-only or read/write access using default encryption to external S3 buckets that reside in the same AWS account as the Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) Public Cloud cluster.

Required role: DWAdmin

  • Identify and activate the environment you want to configure for access to an external bucket in the same AWS account.
  • In the AWS Management Console, identify the external S3 bucket you want to configure access to.
  1. In the CDW UI Overview, click Environments, choose the environment that is activated for the Virtual Warehouses you want to use with the external AWS bucket, and click Options > Edit .
  2. In Environment Details, in the Enter s3 bucket name, type the name of the AWS bucket you want to configure access to.
  3. Specify whether Read Only or Read Write access is needed.
  4. Click Add Bucket to save the configuration. A success message displays at the top of the page.
If you have configured Read Write access, you must restart the Virtual Warehouses that are associated with this environment for the configuration changes to take effect.
