Hello,

 

I have a zip file that contains 2 CSVs and 1 Json  that i need to upload to AWS S3. Is there a way to do this? 

 

I appreciate if anyone can share a mock-up WF that can help achieving this goal.

Thank you!

You can unzip the files using batch files/command line or manually through the input tool x 3. Then use the Upload S3 tool that comes standard with Alteryx.

Thank you Ryan but I actually need to upload the zip and that's what I am not able to do using connectors.

You can build a connector yourself using the Alteryx tools to cover this off but my question to you is; why does it need to stay as a zip? S3 has huge disk capacity and is meant as a data lake, therefore having a zip is not really required. Also, for those files to be utilized for downstream consumption, they would need to be unzipped. What would be the business reason for them to be zipped in the data lake?
