Basic settings

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List click the relevant connection component to reuse the connection details you already defined.

Access Key and Secret Key

Specify the access keys (the access key ID in the Access Key field and the secret access key in the Secret Key field) required to access the Amazon Web Services. For more information about AWS access keys, see Access keys (access key ID and secret access key).

To enter the secret key, click the [...] button next to the secret key field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

Inherit credentials from AWS role

Select this check box to leverage the instance profile credentials. These credentials can be used on Amazon EC2 instances, and are delivered through the Amazon EC2 metadata service. To use this option, your Job must be running within Amazon EC2 or other services that can leverage IAM Roles for access to resources. For more information, see Using an IAM Role to Grant Permissions to Applications Running on Amazon EC2 Instances.

Assume role

Select this check box and specify the values for the following parameters used to create a new assumed role session.

  • Role ARN: the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the role to assume.

  • Role session name: an identifier for the assumed role session.

  • Session duration (minutes): the duration (in minutes) for which we want to have the assumed role session to be active.

For more information about assuming roles, see AssumeRole.


Specify the AWS region by selecting a region name from the list or entering a region between double quotation marks (for example "us-east-1") in the list. For more information about AWS Regions, see AWS Regions and Endpoints.
