In today’s data-driven world, integrating various systems and services is essential for efficient data management and analysis. Connecting Amazon S3, a powerful cloud storage service, with Jedox, a leading enterprise planning and analytics platform, can streamline data workflows and enhance decision-making processes. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process of setting up a REST connection between Amazon S3 and Jedox.


Before we begin, make sure you have the following prerequisites:

  1. Amazon Account Creation: If you haven’t already, sign up for an Amazon Web Services (AWS) account here.
  2. Creating an S3 Bucket: Log in to the AWS Management Console and create a bucket in Amazon S3 to store your data.
  3. Generating a Policy: Generate a policy in AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to define permissions for accessing the S3 bucket.
  4. Uploading a File to the Bucket: Upload a file to the S3 bucket to test the connection.
  5. Creating a Role: Create an IAM role to grant access to AWS resources.
  6. Creating a REST API: Set up a REST API in Amazon API Gateway to expose the S3 bucket contents.
  7. Adding Connection API to Jedox: Configure Jedox to connect to the REST API endpoint.

Step-by-Step Guide

1. Creating an Amazon S3 Bucket

  • Log in to the AWS Management Console and navigate to the Amazon S3 service.
  • Click on “Create Bucket” and follow the prompts to create a bucket with a unique name.
  • Once the bucket is created, note down its name and region for future reference.

2. Generating a Policy

  • Access AWS IAM in the Management Console and create a new policy.
  • Define permissions for accessing the S3 bucket, such as read, write, or list.
  • Attach the policy to a user, group, or role to grant access accordingly.

3. Uploading a File to the Bucket

  • Choose the created S3 bucket in the Management Console.
  • Click on “Upload” and select a file from your local system to upload to the bucket.
  • Verify that the file has been successfully uploaded and note down its path within the bucket.

4. Creating a Role

  • Navigate to IAM in the Management Console and select “Roles.”
  • Click on “Create role” and choose the service that will use this role (e.g., Lambda).
  • Attach the policy created earlier to this role to grant access to the S3 bucket.

5. Creating a REST API

  • Access Amazon API Gateway in the Management Console and click on “Create API.”
  • Choose the REST protocol and define resources, methods, and integrations as per your requirements.
  • Configure the API to expose the S3 bucket contents through appropriate endpoints.

6. Adding Connection API to Jedox

  • In the Jedox interface, navigate to the Integrations or Connections section.
  • Add a new connection and choose REST API as the connection type.
  • Provide the API endpoint URL created in Amazon API Gateway.
  • Configure authentication settings if required, such as API keys or OAuth tokens.


By following these steps, you can connect Amazon S3 and Jedox via REST connection, enabling efficient data retrieval and analysis. This integration opens up endless possibilities for leveraging the power of cloud storage and advanced analytics to drive business insights and decision-making. Experiment with different configurations and customizations to suit your specific use case, and unlock the full potential of your data ecosystem.
