Send data from Splunk DSP to Amazon Kinesis

Use the AWS Kinesis Connector using static credentials to send data to any Kinesis stream that the tenant has credentials for.

You need a Universal license to send data from DSP to a Kinesis stream. See Licensing for the Splunk Data Stream Processor.

To use a connector, you must create a connection. You can reuse the Kinesis connection for both the Read from Amazon Kinesis Stream source function and the Write to Kinesis sink function.

  1. From the Data Management page, click on the Connections tab.
  2. Click Create New Connection.
  3. Choose the Amazon Kinesis Connector using static credentials connector.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Complete the following fields:
    Field Description
    Name A unique name for your connection.
    Description A description of your connection
    AWS access key ID The AWS access key ID with permissions to read and write to the Kinesis stream. See the Controlling Access to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams Resources Using IAM for more information on AWS IAM policies.
    AWS region The AWS region of the Kinesis stream.
    AWS secret access key The AWS secret access key with permissions to read and write to the Kinesis stream.

    Any credentials that you upload are transmitted securely by HTTPS, encrypted, and securely stored in a secrets manager.

  6. Click Save.

    If you are editing a connection that's being used by an active pipeline, you must reactivate that pipeline after making your changes.

You can now use your Kinesis connection with a Write to Kinesis sink function to send data to an Amazon Kinesis stream.
