Mirrored Files using Amazon S3 requires that your institution purchase storage space from Amazon. To purchase storage space from Amazon, visit http://aws.amazon.com/s3.
Faculty Success utilizes IAM roles to access your AWS resources. This allows you to establish a trust relationship between your account and DM's AWS account and to securely delegate permissions using roles.
To store files with Amazon, you will need to set up a role in your S3 bucket that FS can assume with our IAM role (arn:aws:iam::148927672511:role/dm-s3-access).
Once you have configured your system, you will provide the following pieces of information via work request and we will implement the mirrored files storage and sync your existing files:
- your AWS role ARN that has read/write/delete permissions for your S3 bucket, that can be assumed by the DM role
- the external ID for that role
- and the Bucket Name
Let us know if you have additional questions about the process for putting mirrored files in place. You may also want to visit https://docs.aws.amazon.com/IAM/latest/UserGuide/id_roles_create_for-user.html for more information on delegating permissions with a role.
