    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to submit this idea for enhancement which we agree would improve the product. Our Designer authoring tool provides a connector supporting Amazon S3, so it is likely that in the first instance we would attempt to reuse this technology within the Toolkit programming model in order to satisfy this requirement. This is currently under consideration as part of a wider piece of work to enable all designer connectors in Toolkit flows. Status is updated to Future Consideration.

    Hi Chandra,

    Thanks for submitting this - It's been moved it to the App Connect ideas list (as they are the team that look after the IIB/ACE nodes) so that it can be appropriately progressed.
