Learn how to collect the information you need to deploy the Non-CDP S3 to CDP S3 ReadyFlow, and meet other prerequisites.

For your data ingest source

  • You have the source S3 region, bucket, path, access key ID, and secret access key.
  • You have access to the source S3 bucket.

For DataFlow

  • You have enabled DataFlow for an environment.

    For information on how to enable DataFlow for an environment, see Enabling DataFlow for an Environment.

  • You have created a Machine User to use as the CDP Workload User.

  • You have given the CDP Workload User the EnvironmentUser role.
    1. From the Management Console, go to the environment for which DataFlow is enabled.
    2. From the Actions drop down, click Manage Access.
    3. Identify the user you want to use as a Workload User.
    4. Give that user EnvironmentUser role.
  • You have synchronized your user to the CDP Public Cloud environment that you enabled for DataFlow.

    For information on how to synchronize your user to FreeIPA, see Performing User Sync.

  • You have granted your CDP user the DFCatalogAdmin and DFFlowAdmin roles to enable your user to add the ReadyFlow to the Catalog and deploy the flow definition.
    1. Give a user permission to add the ReadyFlow to the Catalog.
      1. From the Management Console, click User Management.
      2. Enter the name of the user or group you wish to authorize in the Search field.
      3. Select the user or group from the list that displays.
      4. Click Roles > Update Roles.
      5. From Update Roles, select DFCatalogAdmin and click Update.
    2. Give your user or group permission to deploy flow definitions.
      1. From the Management Console, click Environments to display the Environment List page.
      2. Select the environment to which you want your user or group to deploy flow definitions.
      3. Click Actions > Manage Access to display the Environment Access page.
      4. Enter the name of your user or group you wish to authorize in the Search field.
      5. Select your user or group and click Update Roles.
      6. Select DFFlowAdmin from the list of roles.
      7. Click Update Roles.
    3. Give your user or group access to the Project where the ReadyFlow will be deployed.
      1. Go to DataFlow > Projects.
      2. Select the project where you want to manage access rights and click More > Manage Access.
    4. Start typing the name of the user or group you want to add and select them from the list.
    5. Select the Resource Roles you want to grant.
    6. Click Update Roles.
    7. Click Synchronize Users.

For your data ingest target

  • You have the destination S3 path and bucket into which you want to ingest data.
  • You have performed one of the following to configure access to the destination S3 bucket:
    • You have configured access to S3 buckets with a RAZ enabled environment.

      It is a best practice to enable RAZ to control access to your object store buckets. This allows you to use your CDP credentials to access S3 buckets, increases auditability, and makes object store data ingest workflows portable across cloud providers.
      1. Ensure that Fine-grained access control is enabled for your DataFlow environment.
      2. From the Ranger UI, navigate to the S3 repository.
      3. Create a policy to govern access to the S3 bucket and path used in your ingest workflow.
      4. Add the machine user that you have created for your ingest workflow to the policy you just created.

      For more information, see Creating Ranger policy to use in RAZ-enabled AWS environment.

    • You have configured access to S3 buckets using ID Broker mapping.

      If your environment is not RAZ-enabled, you can configure access to S3 buckets using ID Broker mapping.
      1. Access IDBroker mappings.
        1. To access IDBroker mappings in your environment, click Actions > Manage Access.
        2. Choose the IDBroker Mappings tab where you can provide mappings for users or groups and click Edit.
      2. Add your CDP Workload User and the corresponding AWS role that provides write access to your folder in your S3 bucket to the Current Mappings section by clicking the blue + sign.
      3. Click Save and Sync.
