ActionView::Template::Error (missing required :bucket option)

I am receiving this error on heroku logs. I am now receiving this error after creating a new bucket on amazon s3 and adding my keys. I also added my keys/bucket name to heroku, as seen here:

=== benjaminsunderland Config Vars
AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID: my_access_key
AWS_BUCKET: mypinterestingapp
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY: my_secret_key
DATABASE_URL: my_database_url
RACK_ENV: production
RAILS_ENV: production
SECRET_KEY_BASE: my_secret_key_base

And also in enviroments/production.rb in my rails app

config.paperclip_defaults = {
:storage => :s3,
:s3_credentials => {
:bucket => ENV['mypinterestingapp'],
:access_key_id => ENV['AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'],
:secret_access_key => ENV['AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY']

my error in heroku logs:

What have I done wrong as heroku is coming up with this error, not the rails app. Do I have a typo? You can see that I named the AWS_BUCKET as exactly the same in my production.rb.

Answer Source

You need:

config.paperclip_defaults = {
  :storage => :s3,
  :s3_credentials => {
    :bucket => ENV['AWS_BUCKET'],
    :access_key_id => ENV['AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'],
    :secret_access_key => ENV['AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY']

Right now you're looking for an ENV variable called 'mypinterestingapp' when you should be looking for ENV['AWS_BUCKET'], which doesn't exist.

Also, I replaced your actual credentials in the code sample above with some generic placeholders. Never a good idea to post actual credentials in a SO question ;)
