How to export data to Amazon S3?

Export data to Amazon S3

Zoho DataPrep supports exporting data to Amazon S3 cloud storage service. Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as Amazon S3  from AWS provides object storage through a web service interface.

Prior to connecting your Amazon S3 data with Zoho DataPrep, you need to enable the below permissions from your Amazon S3 account:
1. ListAllMyBuckets
2. Get BucketLocation
3. ListBucket
4. GetObject
Please refer to Amazon S3 help pages to provide these permissions. 

  To export data to Amazon S3

1. Click the Export now option from the Export menu on the DataPrep Studio page.

2. From the side pane, choose Cloud storage and select the Amazon S3 option.

3. Provide the Connection name, Access key, and Secret key.

If you have added a connection already, click the existing connection in the Saved connections section and start exporting data.

Note :  Click the Add new link to add a new Amazon S3 account. You can create as many connections as required.

4. You will need to authenticate S3 when you try connecting to S3 for the first time. Click the Authenticate Amazon S3 button to authenticate your account with your credentials. 

Note : The connection configuration will be saved for accessing data in Amazon S3 in the future. Credentials are securely encrypted and stored.

5. Select the File format the data should be exported with.

6. Enter the Bucket name you want to export your data to.


7. Provide the Folder path where you want to export your data. If you choose to store the files in the bucket without any folder, you can leave this field empty.

8. Select the required option from the File export option. You can choose to Replace or update file with a new version at the destination, or Add as new file during export.

Note : The file will be updated as a new version or replaced based on the versioning configuration in your Amazon S3 bucket.

9. Select the preferred Amazon S3 connection from the Connection name dropdown.

 You can also click the Advanced options link for the following options.
  • You can encode the file using character encoding methods like UTF-8 using the File encoding option.
  • You can use a Row Separator such as UNIX (Line Feed) or MAC (Carriage Return) to ensure the line endings are translated properly.
  • You can distinguish the point at which the content of a text field begins and ends using Text qualifier s such as Single Quote(') or   Double Quote(").
  • You can separate out the data or split using a Delimiter such as a Comma(,), Semicolon(;), or a Space.
  • Enable the Compress as a .zip file toggle to export your file as a .zip file.
  • You can also encrypt the file and protect it with a password using the Encrypt file and protect using password option.

11. Click ExportOnce the export is complete, you can also choose to schedule the export by clicking the Configure schedule> link.
