Configuring the Amazon S3 adapter

You configure an adapter in Grid Manager. The configuration specifies how the adapter interacts with Amazon S3. While each adapter must have a unique name, you can create multiple adapters with the same adapter type to allow for different configuration properties.

The form view in Grid Manager provides an easy-to-use interface for configuring adapters. The form view prevents human errors that might occur as a result of copying the configuration XML from the XML sample into the UI when you configure an adapter. You can switch to the XML view to configure those elements and attributes that are not available as form fields or to configure all the elements and attributes using XML only. However, after you switch to the XML view and save the configuration in the XML from that view, you cannot thereafter use the form view for modifying that configuration.

The default name for the actor adapter is AmazonS3ActorAdapter.

To configure the actor adapter

If the default value for an optional element is acceptable, omit the element. Do not include empty elements.

  1. Log on to the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Grid Manager.
  2. Access the adapters page by clicking the Manage tab; then click the Adapters tab.
  3. In the Adapters in Repository list, select the adapter-bmc-amazon s3-actor check box to configure the actor adapter.
  4. Click Add to Grid to include the adapter in the Adapters on Grid list.
  5. Click Configure corresponding to the newly added adapter.
  6. On the Add an Adapter Configuration page, perform the following substeps to configure the adapter using the form view or skip to step 7 to configure the adapter using the XML view:
    1. Enter a name for the adapter.

      The Name field does not support single-quote (') and ampersand (&) characters.

    2. Enter a description for the adapter.
    3. Under Properties, enter or select values for the configuration elements.

      Include all required elements, indicated with an asterisk *.

  7. (optional) Configure the adapter in the XML view using the following substeps:
    1. Enter a name and a description for the adapter.
    2. Click Switch to XML View.
    3. On the Warning message that appears, click Switch View.
    4. Copy the configuration elements and attributes from the XML sample into the Properties text box, and then click OK.
    5. On the Warning message that appears, click Save.
      This action saves the adapter configuration with settings in the XML view permanently. The newly configured adapter is now listed in the Adapters on Grid list.

The following table describes the node elements required for configuring the actor adapter:

UI label

Element

Description

Required?

WSDL Location

<wsdl-location>

Specifies the target WSDL URL for Amazon S3

Example: http://s3.amazonaws.com/doc/2006-03-01/AmazonS3.wsdl

Conditional; required if not specified in the request

Endpoint Address

<endpoint-address>

Specifies the web service endpoint to use for performing operations on
Amazon S3 buckets across different regions

Default: https://s3.amazonaws.com/soap: Endpoint in the US Standard region

Values for regions:

No

AWS Access Key ID

<aws-access-key-id>

Specifies the 20-character public Access Key ID that is included in an Amazon Web Service (AWS) service request to identify the user

AWS uses the Access Key ID to look up an account's Secret Access Key. Amazon.com then calculates a digital signature with the key. If they match, the user is considered authentic; otherwise, the authentication fails and the request is not processed.

Conditional; required if not specified in the request

Secret Access Key

<secret-access-key>

Specifies the 40-character private identifier that is associated with the Access Key ID

If you do not use the SOAP protocol with Web Service Security, a digital signature is calculated, using the Secret Access Key that you include in the request.

Conditional; required if not specified in the request
