With the Amazon S3 destination, you can send your submitted data to your Amazon S3 cloud storage.

To set this up, go to your "Forms" page and click the link in the destinations column of the form you would like to add the destination to, or select Destinations from the settings menu.

Note: If there are no destinations added to your account, this button will read "0"

This will take you to the "Destinations" page, where you will then need to click "New Destination".

A new page will load and on it you will see different destinations to which you can send your data. Click "Amazon S3".

Then select the file format you would like. For this example, we'll choose the PDF format.

You will also see an option to send your images to a service other than Device Magic. If you would like to do this, select from the services provided. Please note, choosing a service other than "None (inline)" will result in a hyperlink to the hosted image being placed in the file generated by this destination instead of the image. See this help article for more information.

Step 4 will give you the option to add a Description to your destination. You can also set your destination to be Active or not here.

Continue to Step 5 and you will see an option customize your file data. This step will be unique to the format you have chosen. Click here for more information on PDF/Word file customization.

Step 6 is where you will need to connect your Amazon S3 bucket to the destination. You will need the following details to link your account:

  • Access key ID
  • Secret Access Key
  • Bucket Name
  • Bucket Region

You can also select a folder path to which you'd like the submission reports sent. This can also include placeholders to create a folder name. For example: /myforms/{{username}}/

Next are "Link Settings", where you have the option to make the links to your files publicly accessible. Submissions to S3 are normal not accessible outside your S3 bucket. 

In the "Advanced Settings", you have the option to exclude UUIDs in file names. UUID are appended at the end of each file name to avoid duplicate file names. If a new file has the same name, the old file will be overwritten in S3. If you check this option, please be certain that the file names are unique.

In Step 7, you have the option to create Destination Rules for when you want the Destination to be active. To learn more Destination Rules, visit this article.

Lastly, click the "Create Destination" button at the bottom of the page.
