Reading Images from you S3 Bucket
It is common for people to want to read images from their S3 account securely. Since Blitline can talk to S3 directly, you can set it up so Blitline reads images directly OUT of you bucket (without the need for a signed url). To accomplish this, you need to do 2 things;
1. Set permission on your S3 bucket to allow Blitline to access the images. If you have already added Blitline permissions to write to your bucket, the change is pretty simple. You would follow the instructions here , and then add the following:
Notice the red “GetObject” action. That allows Blitline to read from your bucket as well as “Put” objects there.
2. For your Blitline job, you will need to change your “src” tag from being a simple url to being a hash containing the “bucket”, “key”( and “location” if you are in an area outside the default eastern US). For example:
”location” : “s3-ap-southeast-1”
