AWS S3 VCS Configuration
Install AWS Client V2
On the Unix box, install AWS Client (Version 2). To do so, follow this link
Or quickreference on Linux is:
$ whoami # should be root, or a user with 'sudo' access $ curl "https://awscli.amazonaws.com/awscli-exe-linux-x86_64.zip" -o "awscliv2.zip" $ unzip awscliv2.zip $ sudo ./aws/install
The system authenticates to S3 by providing an AWS aws_access_key_id and the associated aws_secret_access_key.
Most common is to create a service account to provide these credentials.
Please find associated aws documentation here
The provided account must have permissions to read, download from, and write to, the associated AWS S3 bucket.
Storing the AWS Credentials
As the 'jenkins' user on the target system, create /var/lib/jenkins/.aws (~/.aws as 'jenkins'), along with a .aws/config and .aws/credentials.
$ whoami jenkins $ mkdir -p ~/.aws $ : #Substitute your region for us-east-1 as needed: $ cat <<EOF >> ~/.aws/config [default] region=us-east-1 output=json EOF $ : # Fill in the aws_access_key_id and aws_secret_access_key per your organization's AWS service account: $ cat <<EOF >> ~/.aws/credentials [default] aws_access_key_id=<access key id associated with read+write access to the target S3 bucket per your Org> aws_secret_access_key=<secret access key associated with the aws_access_key_id above> notes="S3 Read+Write access for <your Org>" EOF
Make sure you can read, download from, and write to the target s3 bucket. From the system, try running:
echo "Testing view access:" aws s3 ls s3://<your bucket>/<optional path> echo "Testing write access:" echo "Write me." > test.txt aws s3 cp test.txt s3://<your bucket>/<optional path>/test.txt # --SSE AES256 # <--- uncomment that if encryption is required and your org uses the default AES256 encryption. Or replace with other settings as needed. echo "Testing download access:" rm test.txt # remove it so that you have to get it back from s3 aws s3 cp s3://<your bucket>/<optional path>/test.txt . ls # You should see test.txt
