About Amazon S3 configuration
The configuration stage of creating a new destination in the Team Site includes the following fields.

- Bucket name refers to the name of the Amazon S3 bucket you want to use as a destination.
- Find your bucket name in the AWS Management Console under Services → S3.
- Upload path refers to the folder structure you want to use within your destination bucket.
- If the specified folder structure already exists, your data will be transferred based on the specified path. If a matching folder structure does not yet exist, a data transfer will create a new folder structure based on this path.
- Region code refers to the region your S3 bucket is located in.
- Find the region code in the AWS Management Console under Services → S3 next to the bucket name.
- Output format offers options for selecting a preferred output format for the data being transferred to this destination.
- Access key refers to the Access key ID that can be found in the AWS Management Console under My Security Credentials.
- Access secret refers to the secret access key that is connected to your access key ID.
- Each access key you generate comes with both an access key ID and a corresponding secret access key.
