Checklist to Verify Your Setup for LiveRamp Identity in ADX

To avoid errors, use the checklists in the sections below to verify that all the necessary native app setup steps have been successfully performed before executing an operation.

AWS Region Alignment

  • Region in Contract: Confirm that the AWS region you provided to LiveRamp during contract execution is consistent with your actual AWS services.

  • AWS CLI Region Check: Run aws configure get region to verify the AWS region for the IAM user or profile you're using.

IAM User and Permissioning

  • IAM User for ADX: Confirm that there is an IAM user configured specifically for ADX operations.

  • ADX Permissioning: Confirm that the IAM user has the required permissions for starting and polling jobs in ADX.

  • S3 Bucket Permissioning: Confirm that the IAM user has been granted read and write permissions for both the input and output S3 buckets.

S3 Bucket Setup

  • Input Bucket Configuration: Confirm that there is an S3 bucket exclusively dedicated for input files for LiveRamp processing.

  • Output Bucket Configuration: Confirm that there is a separate S3 bucket dedicated for output files from LiveRamp processing.

  • Bucket Policy Verification: Confirm that the bucket policies for the input and output buckets are aligned with LiveRamp's required permissions.

  • Bucket Accessibility Test: Execute aws s3 ls s3://<input-bucket-name> and aws s3 ls s3://<output-bucket-name> to verify IAM user access to the buckets.
