Angular 4 Amazon S3 example – How to upload File to S3 Bucket

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is object storage built to store and retrieve any amount of data from web or mobile. Amazon S3 is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. In this tutorial, we’re gonna create an Angular 4 App that can upload files to Amazon S3 Bucket.

I. Technology

– Angular 4

II. How to do

1. Set up Amazon S3
1.1 Create an IAM user

We need to provide access permission bucket. So follow these step to create an IAM user and get Access key ID and Secret access key:

Go to
In the navigation pane, choose Users and then choose Add user.

springboot amazon s3 starter - choose user

Input User name, choose Programmatic access for Access type:

amazon s3 starter - add user info

2. Install AWS SDK

Run this: npm install aws-sdk.

After installing, we can see aws-sdk inside node-modules folder:


3. Use AWS SDK

– import AWS and S3 from aws-sdk:

– use accessKeyId & secretAccessKey from the step above to construct S3 bucket.
– call S3 bucket upload() method with input params containing Bucket for bucket’s name, Key for full path, Body for data file.
