Workflow to create cloud storage destinations

Overview

This page explains how you can connect to cloud storage locations in Adobe Experience Platform.

In Connections > Destinations, select your preferred cloud storage destination, then select Configure.

Connect to cloud storage destination

NOTE

If a connection with this destination already exists, you can see an Activate button on the destination card. For more information about the difference between Activate and Configure, refer to the Catalog section of the destination workspace documentation.

In the Authentication step, if you had previously set up a connection to your cloud storage destination, select Existing Account and select your existing connection. Or, you can select New Account to set up a new connection to your cloud storage destination. Fill in your account authentication credentials and select Connect to destination. Optionally, you can attach your RSA-formatted public key to add encryption to your exported files. Note that this public key must be written as a Base64 encoded string.

See Amazon S3 destination, Amazon Kinesis destination, Azure Event Hubs destination, and SFTP destination for specifics around credentials input in the Authentication step.

NOTE

Platform supports credentials validation in the authentication process and displays an error message if you input incorrect credentials to your cloud storage location. This ensures that you don’t complete the workflow with incorrect credentials.

In the Setup step, enter a Name and a Description for your activation flow.

Also in this step, you can select any Marketing use case that should apply to this destination. Marketing use cases indicate the intent for which data will be exported to the destination. You can select from Adobe-defined marketing use cases or you can create your own marketing use case. For more information about marketing use cases, see the Data usage policies overview.

For Amazon S3 destinations, insert the Bucket name and the Folder path in your cloud storage destination where the files will be delivered. Select Create Destination after you filled in the fields above.
