Amazon S3 Data Lake

Many FinTechs, financial institutions and other platforms have built (or are building) bespoke analytics/reporting solutions for various proprietary use cases. If your enterprise likes to leverage large analytical data, the Hurdlr API has you covered via its Data Lakes product.

The instructions below explain how to set up your Amazon S3 bucket as a Hurdlr API Data Lake.

1. Create a bucket

The first step to configuring your Hurdlr API data lake is to create an Amazon S3 bucket to store Hurdlr API data. We recommend naming this bucket "hurdlr-api-data".

Please note down the "AWS Region" that you selected.

2. Configure a policy for programmatic access to the bucket

Next, you'll need to create an IAM policy to grant programmatic access to the Amazon S3 bucket that we created above.

The first step on the "Create policy" flow will give you the option to use the Visual Editor or JSON. You should select the JSON option, and then paste the following JSON in there:

{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
                "s3:ListBucket"
            ],
            "Resource": [
                "arn:aws:s3:::hurdlr-api-data"
            ]
        },
        {
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
                "s3:PutObject",
                "s3:GetObject",
                "s3:DeleteObject"
            ],
            "Resource": [
                "arn:aws:s3:::hurdlr-api-data/*"
            ]
        }
    ]
}

The second step of the "Create policy" flow simply entails clicking "Next: Review":

The third step of the "Create policy" flow will require you to input a Name and Description. We recommend setting the Name to "hurdlr-api-data-access".

Simply click "Create policy" and then you're done with this step.

3. Add an IAM user using the new policy

Next, you'll need to add an IAM user using the new policy created in the prior step.

The first step on the "Add user" flow will ask you to input a User name, for which we recommend using "hurdlr-api-data-user".

The second step on the "Add user" flow give you a few options to set permissions. Select the "Attach existing policies directly" option. Then, simply search for "hurdlr-api-data-access" and select that:
