User Configuration

Took me a while to figure out that a user in Matillion cannot run a job that writes to s3 (apparently) without being designated as an "Admin" in the User Configuration area. Didn't realize this was the case, so spun wheels on it a bit. I thought that the AWS service account was what Matillion was using across users.

I assumed that the "Admin" designation had more to do with the administration of the Matillion instance, but I assume this is a security measure of some sort?

In any case, addition to the help info that makes this clear would be helpful. If I'm missing something, please let me know.

Thanks.

Hi Mark -

What you are describing is not expected behavior. I just ran a test myself to confirm. I setup a user that does not have Admin or API perms granted. I then used that user to create a test job that performs an S3 Unload. The job ran as expected and unloaded data from Redshift into a file within an S3 Bucket.
Could you provide more details as to what component you are using when you experience this behavior?

Regards,
Arawan
