-How to setup Cloud Providers is documented on our Wiki. Please see: [[cloudproviders/​amazons3]] +Simply ​navigate to the Dashboardafter login to the web as Administrator, ​and choose to set the S3 Cloud as the Primary Storage Cloud by clicking ​the tick icon to the left of the settings cog symbol. Once this is done you will see '​def'​ marked next to the Amazon S3 cloud that shows it is now the nominated default storage cloud.
