S3 Download Integration Features

  • Configuration is very similar to regular deployment actions. The only difference is that this time the Source path is on the remote server, and the Destination path is in the pipeline's filesystem
  • If several actions are connecting to the same server, use Environment Variables to manage user & password credentials instead of providing fixed values in the inputs
  • Once the AWS integration has been established, it is possible to browse the S3 bucker and select the Source path from Buddy’s UI instead of typing it manually
  • Available options: Overwrite, Recursive
  • The action can be configured in YAML mode. See S3 Download YAML parameters
  • Buddy's S3 Download API is supported
