Funnel's Amazon S3 connector lets you export your Funnel data to an S3 bucket of your choice. This guide will cover what you need to do in your AWS console in order for Funnel to be able to export data there.

Step 1 - Create a bucket

Log in to your AWS S3 Console at http://console.aws.amazon.com/s3/home and create an S3 Bucket. You will need to decide on a globally unique "Bucket name", in our example below this is "funnel-demo". Input the bucket name and select a region from the supported ones below and click "create bucket".

Supported regions

  • us-east-2 US East (Ohio)

  • us-east-1 US East (N. Virginia)

  • us-west-1 US West (N. California)

  • us-west-2 US West (Oregon)

  • ap-south-1 Asia Pacific (Mumbai)

  • ap-northeast-3 Asia Pacific (Osaka)

  • ap-northeast-2 Asia Pacific (Seoul)

  • ap-southeast-1 Asia Pacific (Singapore)

  • ap-southeast-2 Asia Pacific (Sydney)

  • ap-northeast-1 Asia Pacific (Tokyo)

  • ca-central-1 Canada (Central)

  • eu-central-1 Europe (Frankfurt)

  • eu-west-1 Europe (Ireland)

  • eu-west-2 Europe (London)

  • eu-west-3 Europe (Paris)

  • eu-north-1 Europe (Stockholm)

  • sa-east-1 South America (São Paulo)

Not supported regions

  • af-south-1 Africa (Cape Town)

  • ap-east-1 Asia Pacific (Hong Kong)

  • eu-south-1 Europe (Milan)

  • me-south-1 Middle East (Bahrain)

Step 2 - Set object ownership

To ensure that the uploaded files are owned by you and not by us you have to set that you (as bucket owners) want to be the owner of the files. We always include the bucket-owner-full-control ACL, so that this setting is respected. This setting is found under the bucket permissions tab.

Step 3 - Set bucket permissions

Go to the Permissions tab for your bucket and edit the "Bucket policy".

Review the following, change "funnel-demo" to the name of your bucket (2 places) and the paste it into the policy field.

"Version": "2012-10-17",
"Statement": [
"Sid": "FunnelRW",
"Effect": "Allow",
"Principal": {"AWS": ["arn:aws:iam::071303700930:role/funnel-export-executor"] },
"Action": ["s3:PutObject","s3:GetObject","s3:DeleteObject"],
"Resource": ["arn:aws:s3:::funnel-demo/*"]
"Sid": "FunnelList",
"Effect": "Allow",
"Principal": {"AWS": ["arn:aws:iam::071303700930:role/funnel-export-executor"]},
"Action": ["s3:ListBucket"],
"Resource": ["arn:aws:s3:::funnel-demo"]

Step 4 - Enable encryption (optional)

If you want to enable encryption on your bucket please also follow this article:

All done!

Having completed the two steps above you can now configure your Funnel export to send data to this S3 bucket. Do this from within your Funnel account.
