Configure credentials for Atlas extraction

When Atlas is running as part of SDX, you can skip this step but follow other instructions.

The extractor is authenticated with AWS through integration with the IDBroker. To authenticate the extractor otherwise, you'll need to provide AWS credentials to the extractor, either through a configuration file or on the command line.

Atlas can use either of the following authentication methods:

  1. Basic credentials: AWS access key and secret key.
  2. Temporary credentials: AWS session token along with access and secret key. See Getting Temporary Credentials with AWS STS.

Both methods require you to specify the region where the authentication is valid.

  • If the connection to AWS S3 expires, Atlas will retry X times to re-establish the connection. This property

    atlas.s3.extraction.max.reconnect.count controls the number of retries, which defaults to 2.
