Has anybody found a way to use the AWS components with a local MinIO server? We’re using it as a local S3 replacement due to security requirements, but the Amazon Authentication node won’t allow to use individual IP addresses. I can use it with Python, but would prefer a codeless approach…
Thanks for posting here. I haven’t tried the MinIO server personally, but if you want to try a codeless approach you could try using the REST Nodes to make the API calls directly instead of the Amazon specific nodes.
right now there is no way to use the AWS connector nodes I guess.
What special things do you need to set in your python snippet compared to a normal S3 connection? Only the endpoint? What authentication credentials are you using, access and secret key?
There are no special things, except a different IP address. MinIO can be accessed with the standard Boto3 library. Normal credentials (access, secret). With a python node I actually just make a download of a source file (or all files in a bucket) and proceed with this/these file(s).
I know several companies here in Switzerland where MinIO (or Cloudian…) is used as on premise S3 alternative to AWS.
Just a guess: if it would be possible to enter a individual IP address/URL instead of the predefined regions it should connect directly…?
