Amazon Kinesis connection

This article provides a guide on how to create an Amazon Kinesis connection in Upsolver.

Create an Amazon Kinesis connection

1. Select your credentials.

  • Automatic

  • Role Based

    • ARN Role: The identifier for the IAM role itself. See: IAM Identifiers

    • External ID (optional): This is useful when you need to grant third-party access to your AWS resources.

2. Select your Amazon EC2 region.

3. Name this connection.

Check Read Only for the connection to be read only; Upsolver will not be able to write data to or delete data from the data stream.

4. Enter in the maximum number of parallel writers to Kinesis (defaults to 20).

5. Click Create.

6. Click Launch Integration or the three vertical dots and select Advanced. You will be directed to create a CloudFormation stack in a new tab. See: AWS CloudFormation

7. Once the stack has been completely created, return to the Upsolver tab and click Done.

If the button instead says Relaunch Integration, check to see whether or not the status of your stack is CREATE_COMPLETE.
