Create an Amazon Web Services S3 bucket

Access Gateway requires an S3 bucket when you deploy it to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Use the AWS Management Console to create an S3 bucket

See Step 1: Create your first S3 bucket for instructions.

See Determine the Amazon Web Services storage region for instructions on determining your AWS storage region. You need to know your AWS storage region to create an S3 bucket and to convert an OVA image to an AWS AMI image.

Use the AWS command-line interface to create an S3 bucket

  1. Open a terminal.
  2. Enter the following command:

    aws s3api create-bucket --bucket okta-access-gateway-ova-bucket --region us-east-1 --create-bucket-configuration LocationConstraint=us-east-1

See create-bucket in the AWS CLI Command Reference for more information.
