Backup Your Knowledge with AWS
Keep an automatic backup of every Knowledge item version created as an archive on your own AWS S3 bucket

Although we have Disaster Recovery and take full snapshot of the entire MetaPulse database everyday, you may want to keep your own backup of your Knowledge Item, one that you have full control over and can easily access.

To enable this we've created an automatic Knowledge Archive System that will write a copy of every Knowledge Item version created to an AWS S3 bucket you provide.

This system will automatically write as an Open Document Presentation format which you can open in pretty much any Word Processor.

Setting up your S3 User

When you setup your S3 account credentials, you will need to provide an AWS policy in order for MetaPulse to access the bucket. The following is the minimum policy required, just substitute your-knowledge-bucket-name with the name of your S3 Bucket.

{
"Version": "2012-10-17",
"Statement":
[
{
"Sid": "VisualEditor0",
"Effect": "Allow",
"Action":
[
"s3:ListBucket"
],
"Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::your-knowledge-bucket-name"
},
{
"Sid": "VisualEditor1",
"Effect": "Allow",
"Action":
[
"s3:PutObject"
],
"Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::your-knowledge-bucket-name/*"
}
]
}

To update your AWS Settings in MetaPulse, you need the following:

  • Access Key

  • Secret Key

  • Bucket Name

  • Bucket Region
