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

To set up this destination, go to your Forms page and locate your form. Then, click the settings icon to view the menu and select Destinations. On the following page, click New Destination.

Note: By default, two destinations are added every form created.

Note: Depending on the subscription package you have, your available destination options will vary.

Select Amazon S3 as the destination and your format. Available formats will vary based on the selected destination.

Supported Formats

Plain Text

Adobe .pdf

Word .docx

Excel .xlsx

XML

JSON

Images

CSV

In Step 3, you can specify that images, signatures and sketches are sent to a different service other than Device Magic. See this help article for more information.

Step 4 provides the option to add a Description to your destination. You can also set your destination to be active or inactive here. When the Active box is unchecked, the destination will not deliver submitted data.

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.
