Snapshot to IBM S3 compatible object storage

(Steve Szabo) #1

Is it possible to snapshot to IBM object store which is S3 compatible?

curl -s -XPUT http://hostname:9200/_snapshot/filebeat20180110 -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'
  "type": "s3",
  "settings": {
    "endpoint": "",
    "region": "tor01-standard",
    "bucket": "my-bucket",
    "compress": "true"
  "indices": "filebeat-2018.01.10"

This error seems to come from amazon not IBM:

The AWS Access Key Id you provided does not exist in our records.
Service: Amazon S3; Status Code: 403; Error Code: InvalidAccessKeyId

When I use an invalid endpoint it fails for the above reason, I would expect it to fail with bad hostname or something similar.
