AWS::IoTEvents::DetectorModel DynamoDBv2 - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::IoTEvents::DetectorModel DynamoDBv2

Defines an action to write to the Amazon DynamoDB table that you created. The default action payload contains all the information about the detector model instance and the event that triggered the action. You can customize the payload. A separate column of the DynamoDB table receives one attribute-value pair in the payload that you specify.

You must use expressions for all parameters in DynamoDBv2Action. The expressions accept literals, operators, functions, references, and substitution templates.

Examples

  • For literal values, the expressions must contain single quotes. For example, the value for the tableName parameter can be 'GreenhouseTemperatureTable'.

  • For references, you must specify either variables or input values. For example, the value for the tableName parameter can be $variable.ddbtableName.

  • For a substitution template, you must use ${}, and the template must be in single quotes. A substitution template can also contain a combination of literals, operators, functions, references, and substitution templates.

    In the following example, the value for the contentExpression parameter in Payload uses a substitution template.

    '{\"sensorID\": \"${$input.GreenhouseInput.sensor_id}\", \"temperature\": \"${$input.GreenhouseInput.temperature * 9 / 5 + 32}\"}'

  • For a string concatenation, you must use +. A string concatenation can also contain a combination of literals, operators, functions, references, and substitution templates.

    In the following example, the value for the tableName parameter uses a string concatenation.

    'GreenhouseTemperatureTable ' + $input.GreenhouseInput.date

For more information, see Syntax in the AWS IoT Events Developer Guide.

The value for the type parameter in Payload must be JSON.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "Payload" : Payload, "TableName" : String }

YAML

Payload: Payload TableName: String

Properties

Payload

Information needed to configure the payload.

By default, AWS IoT Events generates a standard payload in JSON for any action. This action payload contains all attribute-value pairs that have the information about the detector model instance and the event triggered the action. To configure the action payload, you can use contentExpression.
