Amazon S3 Connector
Amazon S3 or Amazon Simple Storage Service is a service offered by Amazon Web Services that provides object storage through a web service interface.
Our platform enables you to quickly and easily connect your Form Entries to Amazon S3.
This enables you to select which files, images, and videos to be uploaded to the Amazon S3 when forms are submitted.
Before you add an Amazon S3 Storage Connector, you must ensure that you have valid Amazon Web Services set up on your organization.
Adding Amazon S3 Storage to your Form
Form Connectors page can be accessed from your Form designer, settings, or in the Screens listing if you mouse over the Form row in question.
Once you are on the Connectors page, setting up an Amazon S3 Storage connector is easy:
- Click on the ADD CONNECTOR button to see a list of the available Connectors.
- Then click the Amazon S3 Storage option.
This will refresh the page and display your Connector, ready for configuration.
