Finding an S3 bucket name and directory prefix

An Amazon administrator must create a user and then apply the AmazonS3ReadOnlyAccess policy in the AWS Management Console. The QRadar® user can then create a log source in QRadar.

Note: Alternatively, you can assign more granular permissions to the bucket. The minimum required permissions are s3:listBucket and s3:getObject.

For more information about permissions that are related to bucket operations, go to the AWS documentation website.
