Adding an AWS4 authenticaion definition to a configuration

You create an AWS4 authentication definition to provide your authentication information to AWS requests sent by HTTP. For security, most requests to AWS must be signed with an access key, which consists of an access key ID and secret access key. These two keys are commonly referred to as your security credentials. (Learn more about understanding and getting your credentials.)

  1. From the main menu, select My Services > Caching
My Service - Caching
  1. From the lists, select the access group and SCID (service component ID) you want to work with. 
My Services - Caching (with SCID selected)
  1. From the list, select the configuration. 

To add an AWS4 authentication definition to a configuration:

  1. From an open configuration, click Edit Configuration.
my services caching add configuration aws4 authentication new definition
  1. In the Service-Wide Definition section, click AWS4 Authentication.

    Media portal lists the AWS4 authentication definitions for the configuration (if any).
my services caching add configuration aws4 authentication
  1. Click New Definition.
my services my services caching add configuration aws4 authentication
  1. Type a name for the definition. (You can leave the auto-generated name or type a name more meaningful to you.)
  1. Fill in Secret and Access Key ID fields with the information you received from Amazon when you registered.
  1. If you need to edit or add other definitions, continue editing the configuration without saving. (Saving the configuration creates a new version.) When you're done editing the configuration, continue with step 7.
  1. Click Save (above the Service-Wide Definition section). You can also click Save As to save the configuration under a new name.
my services my services caching save configuration
  1. If needed, make any notes to describe the changes you made.
  1. Click Save again.

    Media portal saves the configuration with the new definition.
