AWS Transfer for SFTP
User Guide

Setting Up

The following sections describe the prerequisites required to use the AWS SFTP service. At a minimum, you need to create an Amazon S3 bucket and provide access to that bucket through a resource-based policy. Your role also needs to establish a trust relationship. This trust relationship allows AWS SFTP to assume the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role to access your S3 bucket so that it can service your SFTP users' file transfer requests.
