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.

To begin connecting your Segment data source, reach out to the Shaped team who will provision a real-time dataset on our platform configured with the Segment event schema.

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

  1. In your Segment source, navigate to 'Add Destination' then find 'Amazon Kinesis'.
  2. Click 'Edit', then enter the following details:
    • AWS Kinesis Stream Name
    • AWS IAM Role Resource Name (ARN)
    • AWS Region: us-east-2
  3. When finished, enable the destination and save.
