GCSE-204: AWS Secret Key is not displayed fully in Amazon S3 connectors in some resolutions



Environment Details

The AWS Secret key field is not displayed on Amazon S3 connectors. This is reported on an external monitor with a 2496x1664 resolution that is the recommended display resolution. Using the recommended scaling or changing the scaling to 100% or 125% does not address the issue.

GCSE-204/GDC-1199 has been logged to address this issue.



As a workaround to enter the AWS Secret, please do the following steps:

1. Select the "Display XML Properties Windows" option found in Designer > Options > User Settings > Edit User Settings.


2. Once this is done, on the Amazon S3 connectors, click the XML view and select Edit. Add the Secret Key in the <SecretKey> tag.  Example:


Enter the value for the rest of the fields in the user interface.


NOTE: The Secret Key field will be encrypted. Hence, the value may be different from what was first entered.
