Preparation of S3 bucket for LegacyFlo

A. Create an S3 bucket on AWS

Note: We recommend that you use a single S3 bucket in your AWS account to receive LegacyFlo request output.

Create your S3 bucket in a supported region and allow list and write access to LegacyFlo. The steps for the same are given in the links below:

  1. Get an AWS account.
  2. Create an S3 bucket in a region supported by Mithi. 
  3. Set a temporary bucket policy to allow LegacyFlo to get the name and region of the buckets as mentioned here.
  4. When the S3 bucket is used as a source, give list and read access to the objects on the bucket and when the S3 bucket is used as a destination, allow list and write access to LegacyFlo. The steps to do so are mentioned here.

B. Register your S3 bucket as a source/destination S3 bucket on LegacyFlo

For LegacyFlo to upload data to your S3 bucket, it needs to be added to as a destination S3 bucket in LegacyFlo. The steps for doing the same are as given below:

Note: This step has to be done only once for each destination bucket.

  1. Login to LegacyFlo
  2. Click on the Initials icon on the top of the left-most pane.
  3. Select Register S3 bucket
  4. Click on Add S3 bucket button. A dialog box will pop-up
  5. On the Prepare Bucket page, you will be shown the list of steps to be completed to create and grant access to the S3 bucket. Confirm that you have done as instructed and click on I confirm that the above configuration is complete.
  6. Click Continue
  7. On the Configure, Verify & Save page,  give the Bucket Name and select the Bucket Region.
  8. Click Verify. LegacyFlo will check the access to the bucket.
  9. If LegacyFlo cannot access the bucket, you will be shown an error message similar to All access to this object has been disabled. Check S3 access rights and name and retry.
  10. If the connection is successful then click on Save. LegacyFlo will remember this S3 for further requests.
