Creating a data source

AWS requires the following information in a data source:

  • accessKeyId: The access key ID for an AWS user who has access to billing information
  • secretKey: The secret key for this user

For information about these properties, see Setting up your account.

You can define this information in a managed data source or an explicit data source. For general information about these two types, see Setting up a data source.

Managed data source

When creating a managed data source, select the type Amazon. When referring to your data source from a job, use the​ bean. For example:

<bean class="">
  <property name="name" value="MyAWSDataSource"/>


Explicit data source

When defining your data source in a job, use the bean. For example:

<bean class="​">
  <property name="accessKeyId" value="ABCDEFG1HIJKLMNOPQRS"/>
  <property name="secretKey" value="1aBC+D2efghijKLmnOpQRsTU+VwXYZA345B6cd7E"/>
