Other external data access

Amazon S3 locations

The CLC Server can read from or write to files n Amazon S3. Access to the relevant AWS accounts is configured under the "S3 location" area, found in the External data tab, under the Configuration tab.

Click on the "Add new S3 location" button. You will need the AWS S3 access key and secret key to configure access to S3 locations.

By default, configured locations are available to all CLC Server users. Access can be restricted by setting group level permissions on S3 areas, as described in Controlling access to the server, server tasks and external data.

Configuration of at least one S3 location is required when submitting workflows to a CLC Genomics Cloud Engine. This is described further in the Cloud Plugin manual, at https://resources.qiagenbioinformatics.com/manuals/cloudplugin/current/index.php?manual=Configuring_Cloud_Server_Plugin.html.
