In the Designer Cloud® application, the S3 browser lets you browse, select, and filter the sources that you can access through S3. In the Import Data page, click the S3 tab.
NOTE: Interactions with S3 are determined by user permissions and features enabled in the Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta platform. For more information, see Using S3.
Use the links and icons to browse buckets for files and folders in the S3 tree structure.
NOTE: Permission to browse your buckets is determined by the permissions associated with your S3 credentials. If you do not have the appropriate permissions, you may not be able to browse the bucket. However, you may be able to paste in the full path to your location to gain access.
Tip: The path to your output home directory should be available through the S3 browser. For more information on this path, see User Profile Page.

To display a subset of files, enter a string in the Search box. The filter is applied as you type and matches anywhere in the name of a currently displayed file or folder.
