What is the S3 Connector?

Our S3 integration enables you to:

  • Automatically import ads from an S3 bucket on a daily basis

  • Push screenshot images into an S3 bucket (via API)

How do I set up the S3 Connector?

To connect an S3 bucket, follow these simple steps:

  1. (optional) Name the Connector to help you remember what it is (e.g. the user name for the IAM credentials you used)

  2. Choose your Access Type

    1. Select IAM credentials if you want to provide the Access Key and Secret Access Key of an IAM user within your AWS account. We'll then use those credentials when accessing S3

    2. Select S3 bucket policy if you don't want to share IAM credentials, but instead give our AWS user access to your bucket (as the "Principal")

  3. Specify the Bucket name and Bucket region (if you're using IAM credentials, be sure the IAM user has at least Object read access to this bucket)

  4. (optional) Enable importing of S3 objects as ads (see below for more)

  5. Click Create S3 Connector

Importing S3 objects as ads

If you enable the Import S3 Objects as ads option, we'll run a daily import to pull in S3 Objects as ads in Ad Reform. Each time the import runs, we'll create a new campaign for that day's import and the imported ads will go in that campaign.

Pushing screenshots to S3

To store screenshots in your own S3 Bucket, you'll need to use our API to request screenshots. Learn more about our API β†’

We plan to enable this feature in the web UI as well, but currently it is API-only. If you're looking to do this, please chat us and let us know!
