    AWS S3 V1 Connector Configuration Reference

    Table of Contents

    The AWS S3 V1 Connector can access AWS S3 buckets in native format.

    Deprecation and removal notice

    This connector is deprecated as of Fusion 5.2 and is removed or expected to be removed as of Fusion 5.5. Use the AWS S3 V2 connector instead.

    For more information about deprecations and removals, including possible alternatives, see Deprecations and Removals.

    The connector uses the S3 API to request data from S3. It calls the listBucket service, which lists all buckets owned by the user account supplied to the connector.

    When creating an S3 data source using the UI, Fusion automatically verifies that the user information supplied has access to the bucket defined in the URL property. If the bucket is not in the list returned by S3, data source creation may fail. At crawl time, if the bucket is not in the list returned by S3, the crawl fails.

    Permission errors when trying to create or crawl the data source may be caused by incorrect username or password, or they may be due to user account permissions. The user account must have List Bucket permissions for the account which owns the bucket that the crawler is trying to access.


    When entering configuration values in the UI, use unescaped characters, such as \t for the tab character. When entering configuration values in the API, use escaped characters, such as \\t for the tab character.

    db - Connector DB

    Type and properties for a ConnectorDB implementation to use with this datasource.

    aliases - boolean

    Keep track of original URI-s that resolved to the current URI. This negatively impacts performance and size of DB.

    Default: false

    inlinks - boolean

    Keep track of incoming links. This negatively impacts performance and size of DB.

    Default: false

    inv_aliases - boolean

    Keep track of target URI-s that the current URI resolves to. This negatively impacts performance and size of DB.

    Default: false

    type - string

    Fully qualified class name of ConnectorDb implementation.

    >= 1 characters

    Default: com.lucidworks.connectors.db.impl.MapDbConnectorDb

    exclude_paths - array[string]

    Regular expressions for URI patterns to exclude. This will limit this datasource to only URIs that do not match the regular expression.

    include_extensions - array[string]

    List the file extensions to be fetched. Note: Files with possible matching MIME types but non-matching file extensions will be skipped. Extensions should be listed without periods, using whitespace to separate items (e.g., 'pdf zip').

    include_paths - array[string]

    Regular expressions for URI patterns to include. This will limit this datasource to only URIs that match the regular expression.

    index_directories - boolean

    Set to true to add directories to the index as documents. If set to false, directories will not be added to the index, but they will still be traversed for documents.

    Default: false

    initial_mapping - Initial field mapping

    Provides mapping of fields before documents are sent to an index pipeline.

    condition - string

    Define a conditional script that must result in true or false. This can be used to determine if the stage should process or not.

    label - string

    A unique label for this stage.

    <= 255 characters

    mappings - array[object]

    List of mapping rules

    Default: {"operation":"move","source":"fetch_time","target":"fetch_time_dt"}{"operation":"move","source":"ds:description","target":"description"}
