Amazon Kinesis

This page covers how to create a collection in Rockset that pulls data from an Amazon Kinesis stream.

Create an Integration

Rockset will need credentials giving it read access to your Kinesis stream. To set this up, create an integration by following instructions for one of these mechanisms:

Create a Collection

Once you create a collection backed by an Amazon Kinesis stream, Rockset continuously ingests objects from your stream and updates your collection automatically as new objects are added.

In the Rockset Console, you can create a collection from Workspace > Collections > Create Collection.

Create Collection

Using the CLI, you can run the following:

$ rock create collection my-first-kinesis-collection \
    kinesis://web-click-streams \
    --integration=aws-rockset-readonly

Collection "my-first-kinesis-collection" was created successfully.

Note that these operations can also be performed using any of the Rockset client libraries.
