Amazon S3 Connector Deployment Overview

The following procedure outlines the steps needed to deploy the Amazon S3 connector. The steps indicate the order in which you must perform configuration tasks on the Coveo server.

To deploy the Amazon S3 connector

  1. Validate that your environment meets the requirements (see Amazon S3 Connector Requirements).

  2. On the Coveo server, in the Coveo Administration Tool:

    1. Create an Amazon S3 field set to take advantage of the available Amazon S3 metadata.

      1. It is recommended to start by importing the default Amazon S3 field set file ([CES_Path]\Bin\Coveo.CES.CustomCrawlers.AmazonS3.FieldSet.xml) to create fields for all the metadata available by default from Amazon S3 documents (see Exporting and Importing a Field Set).

      2. When you created custom metadata for your Amazon S3 documents, add corresponding fields to the field set (see Adding or Modifying Custom Fields).

    2. Configure and index an Amazon S3 source.

      The connector must know details about the authorized access to the Amazon S3 bucket(s) to index its content (see Configuring and Indexing an Amazon S3 Source).

    3. If you encounter issues, verify if modifying the default value of hidden source parameters can help resolve the problems (see Modifying Hidden Amazon S3 Source Parameters).
