Installing the S3 Connector

These steps describe how to install the S3 Connector to an instance of Alfresco Content Services.
The S3 Connector is packaged as an Alfresco Module Package (AMP) file.
Note: Ensure that you don't start Alfresco Content Services before installing the S3 Connector AMP.

  1. Go to the Alfresco Support Portal.
  2. Download the alfresco-s3-connector-3.1.x.amp file.
  3. Use the Module Management Tool (MMT) to install the AMP into the repository WAR (alfresco.war).

    For more information, see Using the Module Management Tool (MMT) and Installing an Alfresco Module Package.

  4. Check that the configuration is set up correctly for your environment.

    Note: For a new clean installation, we recommend that you choose a pure S3 content store. See S3 Connector content store subsystems and Properties reference for more details.
  5. Starting from version 3.1, the S3 Connector has the deleted content store disabled by default, since this feature is already present in Amazon's S3 service. For details on how to re-enable it, see S3 Connector deleted content store.
  6. Start Alfresco Content Services.
