Configuring your Access Settings using IAM Keys

By default, the selected Access Mode Type is IAM Keys.

Storage Settings

Parameter Detail
AWS Access Key Enter the AWS Access Key (must have 20 characters).
AWS Secret Key Enter the AWS Secret Key (must have 40 characters).
Default Location

QDS recommends you change the Default Location (for any data created).

Warning

To avoid adverse effects on the command latency and performance, specify a separate AWS S3 bucket for each QDS account,avoid providing long prefixes, and sharing the same AWS S3 bucket for all accounts.

See Manage Roles for information on how access permissions are granted and restricted.

Compute Settings

Parameter Detail
Use Same Settings as Storage Selected by default. To use different compute settings, clear the checkbox.
Push Compute Settings to all clusters Select this option if you want to push compute settings to all clusters in an account. Qubole recommends selecting this option if you are setting up the compute keys for the first time. It is enabled by default for all new users and users, who have entered invalid credentials.
AWS Access Key Enter the AWS Access Key (must have 20 characters).
AWS Secret Key Enter the AWS Secret Key (must have 40 characters).
Persistent Security Groups If you specify a persistent security group here, it is attached to all clusters by default unless it is overridden in the cluster settings. (This field is optional; by default, no persistent security group is used.) Qubole only uses the security group name for validation. So, do not provide the security group’s ID.

You can improve the security of a cluster by authorizing Qubole to generate a unique SSH key every time a cluster is started; create a support ticket to enable this capability. Once it is enabled, QDS will use the unique SSH key to interact with the cluster. If you want use this capability to control QDS access to a Bastion node communicating with a cluster running on a private subnet, Qubole support will provide you with an account-level key that you must authorize on the Bastion node.
