Syntax

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

Properties

InputParallelism

Describes the number of in-application streams to create.

Data from your source is routed to these in-application input streams.

See Configuring Application Input.

The InputProcessingConfiguration for the input. An input processor transforms records as they are received from the stream, before the application's SQL code executes. Currently, the only input processing configuration available is InputLambdaProcessor.

Required: No

Type: InputProcessingConfiguration

NamePrefix

Name prefix to use when creating an in-application stream. Suppose that you specify a prefix "MyInApplicationStream." Amazon Kinesis Analytics then creates one or more (as per the InputParallelism count you specified) in-application streams with names "MyInApplicationStream_001," "MyInApplicationStream_002," and so on.
