# Working with Amazon S3 connector
The terminology (opens new window) for common Amazon S3 data can be found below.
Buckets are containers that hold objects. The geographical region where this bucket and its contents will be stored can be defined by the user.
An object consists of a file, and optionally any metadata describing that file.
# Using the new file trigger
The new file trigger listens to new files uploaded into a specific Amazon S3 bucket. The trigger event contains only metadata about the file, however, such as filename and size. To retrieve content of the file, use the Download file action.
# Exact, case sensitive names
When defining bucket and object by names in Amazon S3, take note that names should be exact and are case sensitive.
