How to Transfer Files from the Application Bucket to Your Own AWS S3 Bucket

Transferring files from our S3 bucket to your own AWS S3 bucket is a straightforward process that ensures you have full control over your data. Follow these steps to ensure a seamless transfer:

Step 1: Access the CB Dashboard

Log in to the CB dashboard using your credentials.

Step 2: Retrieve Access Details

Locate the access key, secret key, and bucket name displayed on the dashboard. These details are necessary for configuring the AWS CLI.

Step 3: Install AWS CLI

If you haven't already, download and install the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) tool. You can find the installation instructions in the official AWS CLI documentation.

Step 4: Configure AWS CLI

After installation, configure the AWS CLI with the access key, secret key, and default region provided on the CB dashboard. Open your terminal or command prompt and run the following command:

aws configure

You will be prompted to enter the following information:

  • AWS Access Key ID: Enter the access key retrieved from the CB dashboard.
  • AWS Secret Access Key: Enter the secret key retrieved from the CB dashboard.
  • Default region name: Enter the region associated with your bucket (e.g., us-west-1).
  • Default output format: You can leave this as None or choose your preferred output format (e.g., json).

Step 5: Copy S3 Bucket Content

Once the AWS CLI is configured, use the aws s3 sync command to copy the content from our S3 bucket to your S3 bucket. Replace source-bucket-name with the name of our S3 bucket and destination-bucket-name with the name of your S3 bucket:

aws s3 sync s3://source-bucket-name s3://destination-bucket-name

Step 6: Monitor Progress

Depending on the size of the S3 bucket and your internet connection speed, the transfer process may take some time. Monitor the progress in your terminal or command prompt window.

Step 7: Verify Transfer

Once the transfer is complete, verify that the content has been successfully copied to your S3 bucket. You can do this by checking the files in the AWS Management Console or by using the AWS CLI.
