You provide your job information and specify how to transfer your data between your storage device and AWS by creating a manifest file. The manifest file is a YAML-formatted text file. It consists of a set of name-value pairs that supply required information such as your device ID, log bucket, return address, and so on. For more information about YAML, go to http://yaml.org.
Import and export manifest files use a common set of options as well as options that are unique to each type.
A set of customs manifest file options is required for any storage device shipped internationally.
For a complete list of manifest options, go to Manifest File Options Reference.
