I have registered a S3 bucket as cloud store in my ArcGIS Server (deployed in the AWS). Very straightforward process, all worked ok.
Now I want to publish a dynamic map service that uses data stored in that S3 bucket. I have found many references in the help saying you can use S3 as data store in ArcGIS Server for shapefiles and file geodatabases but I could not find a reference that explains how to publish a service that uses data stored in S3.
How could I do that - say from ArcGIS desktop? is that possible?
Appreciate your help. Thank you.
PS: Why would I want to do that? 1) To keep my ArcGIS Server site stateless, 2) In my organisation S3 is a very easy way to update the file data I registered in ArcGIS Server. 3) make use of all the benefits of S3, and since I'm using it as part of the ArcGIS Enterprise deployment I want to use it for other purposes.
4) AWS EFS is possibly a better option, yes I agree but it's not yet supported as a datastore in server as far as I know.
