The Kinesis Producer step pushes data from a PDI transformation to an existing stream in a specific region within the Amazon Kinesis Data Streams (KDS) service. You can use this step to publish a stream of data to KDS for storage in S3, Redshift, or EMR HDFS. For more information about the Amazon Kinesis Data Streams protocol, see https://aws.amazon.com/kinesis/.
For the Kinesis Producer step, configure the connection to Amazon and specify the target Amazon region and KDS stream. Only one region can be selected.
Enter the following information:
- Step name: Specifies the unique name of the Kinesis Producer step on the canvas. You can customize the name or leave Kinesis Producer as the default.
The Kinesis Producer step includes a tab for setting up the connection to the Amazon Kinesis Data Streams service and a tab for adding configuration options. Each tab is described below.
In the Setup tab, define the connection to the Amazon region, the target stream in the Amazon Kinesis Data Streams (KDS) service, the partition key field, and the message field:
|Region||Specify the Amazon geographical region where the stream is located. You can select only one region.|
|Stream name||Specify the Amazon KDS stream name by selecting one of the
|Partition key field||Select the PDI field that contains the partition key. The partition key is used to group records into shards within the stream.|
|Message field||Select the PDI field that contains data to write to the stream.|
In the Options tab, define the Value for the following write and connection timeout settings:
|Write Timeout Seconds||Specify a timeout value, in seconds, for the Kinesis Producer step to wait for the next time to write to the KDS stream. The default value is 30.|
|Connection Timeout Seconds||Specify a timeout value, in seconds, for the Kinesis Producer step to wait while trying to connect to the server. The default value is 2.|
|Connection Acquisition Timeout Seconds||Specify a timeout value, in seconds, for the Kinesis Producer step to wait while trying to connect after the initial connection is made. The default value is 10.|
Metadata injection support
All fields of this step support metadata injection. You can use this step with ETL metadata injection to pass metadata to your transformation at runtime.
