Our real-time data streaming infrastructure is built on-top of the AWS Kinesis Data Streams service. As part of this integration Shaped can also receive arbitrary schema-fied JSON events for customers that require manual schema support.

To begin connecting your data to our real-time stream, reach out to the Shaped team with your AWS Account Principal ID, we can then provision a real-time dataset on our platform configured with the appropriate event schema.

In order to forward events from to the AWS Kinesis Data Stream you will need to perform the following steps in your environment:

  1. Assume the IAM Role provided by the Shaped team, which will have appropriate permissions to be assumed from your principal.
  2. Use the appropriate AWS Kinesis SDK to send events to the provided Kinesis stream.

See: Writing Data to Kinesis Data Streams for additional information.
