Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is an object storage service that offers scalability, data availability, security, and performance. Amazon S3 provides features for data organization and configuration of access controls for your business, organization, and compliance requirements.

This TD export integration allows you to write job results from Treasure Data directly to Amazon S3.

What can you do with this Integration?

  • Create buckets: Create and name a bucket that stores data.
  • Storing data: Store an infinite amount of data in a bucket.

  • Basic knowledge of Treasure Data, including the TD Toolbelt.

  • For AWS: the IAM User :

    • with s3:PutObject, s3:AbortMultipartUpload permissions.

    • with kms:Decrypt, kms:GenerateDataKey* permissions when selecting the sse-kms setting.

Requirements and Limitations

  • The default query result limit for export to S3 is 100GB. You could config part size setting up to 5000 (MB), the file limit will be about 5TB.

  • The default export format is CSV RFC 4180.

  • Output in TSV, JSONL format is also supported.

Static IP Address of Treasure Data

The static IP address of Treasure Data is the access point and source of the linkage for this Integration. To determine the static IP address, contact your Customer Success representative or Technical support.

About S3 Server-Side Encryption

You can encrypt upload data with AWS S3 Server-Side Encryption. You don’t need to prepare an encryption key. Data will be encrypted at the server side with 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256).

Use the Server-Side Encryption bucket policy if you require server-side encryption for all objects that are stored in your bucket. When you have the server-side encryption enabled, you don't have to turn on the SSE option. However, job results may fail if you have bucket policies to reject HTTP requests without encryption information.

About KMS Server-Side Encryption

You can encrypt upload data with Amazon S3-managed encryption keys (SSE-S3)

When you enable AWS KMS for server-side encryption in Amazon S3:

  • If you don't input the KMS Key ID, it will create/use the default KMS key.

  • If you input the KMS Key ID, you must choose symmetric CMK (not asymmetric CMKs).

  • The AWS KMS CMK must be in the same Region as the bucket.

About File Formats for S3

Use the TD Console to Create a Connection

In Treasure Data, you must create and configure the data connection before running your query. As part of the data connection, you provide authentication to access the integration.

Create a New Authentication

Numbered Headings
Open TD Console.
Navigate to Integrations Hub Catalog.
Search for S3 and select AmazonS3.
Select Create Authentication.
Type the credentials to authenticate:


S3 service endpoint override. You can find region and endpoint information from AWS Document. (Ex.

 When specified, it will override the region setting.
RegionAWS Region
Authentication Methodbasic
  • Uses access_key_id and secret_access_key to authenticate. See AWS Programmatic access.

    • Access Key ID

    • Secret access key

session (Recommended)
  • Uses temporary-generated access_key_id, secret_access_key and session_token.

    • Access Key ID

    • Secret access key

    • Secret token

  • Uses role access. See AWS AssumeRole

    • TD's Instance Profile

    • Account ID

    • Your Role Name

  3. Select a query for which you would like to export data.

  4. Run the query to validate the result set.

  5. Select Export Results.

 Select Export Results.

You can select an existing authentication or create a new authentication for the external service to be used for output. Choose one of the following:

Use Existing Integration

(Optional) Specify information for Export to Amazon S3.

Is user directory Root?

If selected, the user directory is treated as the root directory.

(ex. ‘/home/treasure-data’ as ‘/’)

Path prefix:The file path where the file will be stored.
Rename file after upload finishIf selected, SFTP result output renames the file on the remote SFTP server from “.xxx.tmp” to “.xxx” after all the data is transferred.
Some MA tools try to import data when a file with a specific name exists on the SFTP server. The temp name option is useful for such cases.

The format of the exported files:

  • csv (comma separated)
  • tsv (tab separated) 

The compression format of the exported files:

  • None
  • GZ
  • bzip2
Header line?The header line with column name as the first line.

The delimited character:

  • Default
  • ,
  • Tab
  • |
Quote policy

The policy for a quote:

  • ALL
  • MINIMAL:  Add the quote character to only fields which contain delimiter, quote, or any of the characters in lineterminator.
  • NONE
Null string

How null value of the result of the query displays:

  • Default
  • empty string
  • \N
  • NULL
  • null
End-of-line character

The EOL (end-of-line) character:

  • CRLF
  • LF
  • CR
Temp filesize threshold

The maximum file size (in bytes) of a local temp file. When the temp file reaches the threshold, the file flushes to a remote file.

If you encounter the error `channel is broken`, reduce the value of this option to resolve the error.

(Optional) Configure Export Results in CLI

To output the result of a single query to an S3 buck add the --result option to the td query command. After the job is finished, the results are written into your s3.
You can specify detailed settings to export your S3 via the --result parameter. 

Creating authentication with Assume Role is only supported through the console. Attempting to create it through the TD CLI will result in an error.
