AWS Amplify Studio now offers a visual interface for setting up and managing file storage resources, making it easy to store and serve user-generated content (e.g. photos and videos) from web or mobile apps. With Amplify Studio, you can easily create an Amazon S3 bucket, configure file access levels, integrate storage client libraries into your web or mobile app, and manage files in Studio’s drag and drop file explorer.

Amplify Studio is visual tool for developers to easily add the most important capabilities needed to build an app (e.g. UI components, database tables, GraphQL APIs, authentication, and now file storage). With today’s launch, you can configure file storage directly from the Studio console. Studio provisions an Amazon S3 bucket in your account and automatically creates IAM policies to scope access to files based on defined authorization rules (e.g. for a home listing app, only signed-in users can view favorites, but any user can view listings). Amplify Studio also offers a file explorer with management capabilities such as file previews, drag and drop uploads, and copy/paste code snippets. You can leverage Amplify Studio’s admin capabilities, and invite app administrators to manage files in the file explorer without an AWS account.

Amplify Studio is available in 17 AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), South America (São Paulo), and Middle East (Bahrain).
