Managing the Amazon S3 Connector
The Composer Amazon S3 connector lets you access the data available in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) storage using the Composer client.
The Composer Amazon S3 connector uses its own embedded Apache Spark functionality that runs separately from the Composer-embedded Spark. It supports Apache Spark 2.2 in its implementation.
Before you can establish a connection from Composer to Amazon S3 storage, a connector server needs to be downloaded, configured and enabled. See Managing Connectors and Connector Servers for general instructions and Connecting to Amazon S3 for details specific to the Amazon S3 connector.
After the connector has been set up, you can create data source configurations that specify the necessary connection information and identify the data you want to use. See Manage Data Source Configurations for more information. After data sources are configured, they can be used to create dashboards and visuals from your data. See Creating Dashboards.
