Add/or Edit an Amazon S3 Source

Amazon simple storage service (S3) is a cloud-based data storage designed to store, manage, and distribute large quantities of data worldwide. Administrators and content managers can add the content of Amazon S3 buckets to a Coveo Cloud organization. Coveo indexes Amazon S3 files to make them searchable.

AWS S3 sources currently do not support:

  • Refreshes

    As an administrator or a content manager, you can however schedule rescans or perform rebuilds to keep your source up to date (see Refresh VS Rescan VS Rebuild). By default, an AWS S3 source is rescanned every day.

  • Item-level security

    An Amazon S3 source does not index the permissions associated with each bucket item. All your source items are searchable either only by you (source creator) or by all members of your organization.
