Amazon S3 integration

As many our users have requested, we’ve added AWS S3 cloud support into our application. Now you can use it in your PlaneUpload account for free!

(Note: If you’re not familiar what PlaneUpload is, check out our About page, there is a 1-min explaining video!)

First, you’ll need AWS S3 credentials, which we’ll explain at first by adding AWS IAM User. Next we’ll show you, how to setup the cloud in your PlaneUpload account.

  1. Naviage to https://aws.amazon.com/s3/ and click “Sign In to the Console” button. After you’re logged in, click on your account name on the top-right corner, and choose “My Security Credentials“. If you’ll get a popup, choose “Get Started with IAM Users“. If not, choose “Users” menu link, from the left sidebar.
  2. Click “Add user” blue button, that will redirect you to the wizard. Provide some user name, and select “Programmatic access“. Then click “Next”aws add user step 1
