Amazon S3 (Amazon Simple Storage Service) is a service that provides object storage through a web service interface. Amazon S3 can be employed to store any type of object, which allows for uses like storage for Internet applications, backup and recovery, disaster recovery, data archives, data lakes for analytics, and hybrid cloud storage.

When connected, access is given to all buckets the logged in user has access to.

Use Cases

There are a number of use cases for the connector:

  • Project Managers can add files directly to projects from an online repository.

  • Set up the Automation Widget to allow Submitters to add files to requests directly from the online repository.

  • Use Automated Project Creation (APC) to have Memsource automatically create new projects when a change in the last modified date is detected for monitored files or a folder.

    • Selected files are imported the very first time APC runs. All files are imported when a folder is monitored.

    • This connector supports absolute path setting.

  • Set up Continuous Jobs to have Memsource monitor selected files for changes.

  • The Connector API can be used to automate steps otherwise performed manually through the UI. Webhooks can be used to have Memsource notify 3rd party systems about certain events (for example, a job status change).
