Content can be transferred to Zoomi by uploading it to an area designated for this purpose on Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3).
S3 Bucket and Credentials
The content location is referred to as a “bucket”. Zoomi will set up a bucket for your company's content and provide the following information for your use:
- Server: s3.amazonaws.com
- Access Key Id
- Initial Path
Keep this information confidential, as it allows access to your content.
Accessing the S3 Bucket
Your content bucket can be accessed using a tool that supports Amazon S3 transfers such as Transmit or Cyberduck (Instructions for Cyberduck below).
- Install Cyberduck
- IMPORTANT: Configure upload permission preferences (see below)
- Select Open Connection
- From the top dropdown, select S3 (Amazon Simple Storage Service). The server field should then display amazonaws.com
- Enter the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key provided by Zoomi
- Select More Options
- In the Path field, enter the Initial Path provided by Zoomi above
- Click Connect
- The Root folder will display
- Double click a folder to open, Drag and drop files or folders into this folder to transfer. To create a new folder, right-click in the app whitespace and select “New Folder”
Configuring Cyberduck’s Default Upload Transfer Permissions
Transfer tools are capable of setting the permissions of files on S3. Permissions of uploaded files must be set to disallow read/write/execute permissions from everyone except the owner.
CyberDuck preferences can be updated to automatically set specific permissions to uploaded files. If these permissions are not configured correctly for each individual installation of Cyberduck, it’s possible that people uploading content may inadvertently make content publicly accessible.
- In Cyberduck, select Cyberduck Preferences → Transfers → Permissions and look for the Uploads section at the bottom of the dialog.
- Check the Change permissions box
- Select “to these permissions: (for Files)” option
- Deselect Read for Group and Others
The Dialog box should look like this:
- Close the preferences dialog, Cyberduck’s upload permissions preferences are now set properly.
