Hi - I'm trying to get through the

Petabyte-scale ingestion with Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse Pipeline Training module and the first exercise has us connecting to an Amazon service to access a moviesDB.csv file. Are there any steps available to set up access to the AmazonS3 service with credential to the file? I don't have an access key or secret I'm unfamiliar how to do this.

Thank you

    To set up access to an Amazon S3 service for the "Petabyte-scale ingestion with Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse Pipeline Training" module, you'll need to configure your S3 credentials properly.  Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get the necessary credentials and configure them in Azure Data Factory:

    Steps to Obtain Amazon S3 Access Key and Secret Key

    4.Please choose to Attach existing policies directly, search for and select the AmazonS3FullAccess policy.  Click Next: Tags then Next: Review, and finally click Create user.

    5.After creating the user, please download the csv file with the Access key ID and Secret access key. Ensure you save this file securely.

    Steps to Configure Amazon S3 Linked Service in Azure Data Factory

    1.Please go to the Azure portal, navigate to your Data Factory instance, and click on Author & Monitor to open the Data Factory UI.

    2.Please, in the Data Factory UI, click the Create pipeline button to open the authoring canvas. In the left pane, click the + button and select Linked Service.

This should help you set up and configure the necessary connections to access your data from Amazon S3 and use it within Azure Data Factory.
