Our real-time data streaming infrastructure is built on-top of the AWS Kinesis Data Streams service, as such we will be connecting Segment to Shaped via the Segment Kinesis Destination.

In order to forward events from Segment to Kinesis you will need to perform the following steps:

  1. Reach out to the Shaped team who will provide you with the AWS Kinesis Stream name and AWS IAM Role Resource Name credentials
  2. In your Segment dashboard source, navigate to 'Add Destination' then find 'Amazon Kinesis'.
  3. Click 'Edit', then enter the following details:
    • AWS Kinesis Stream Name"ShapedDatasetStream-*****"
    • AWS IAM Role Resource Name (ARN)"kinesisIamRoleArn": "arn:aws:iam::*****:role/ShapedDatasetAccessRole-*****"
    • AWS Region: us-east-2
  4. When finished, enable the destination and save.
