S3DataNode - AWS Data Pipeline


Defines a data node using Amazon S3. By default, the S3DataNode uses server-side encryption. If you would like to disable this, set s3EncryptionType to NONE.


When you use an S3DataNode as input to CopyActivity, only the CSV and TSV data formats are supported.


The following is an example of this object type. This object references another object that you'd define in the same pipeline definition file. CopyPeriod is a Schedule object.

{ "id" : "OutputData", "type" : "S3DataNode", "schedule" : { "ref" : "CopyPeriod" }, "filePath" : "s3://myBucket/#{@scheduledStartTime}.csv" }


Object Invocation Fields Description Slot Type
schedule This object is invoked within the execution of a schedule interval. Users must specify a schedule reference to another object to set the dependency execution order for this object. Users can satisfy this requirement by explicitly setting a schedule on the object, for example, by specifying "schedule": {"ref": "DefaultSchedule"}. In most cases, it is better to put the schedule reference on the default pipeline object so that all objects inherit that schedule. Or, if the pipeline has a tree of schedules (schedules within the master schedule), users can create a parent object that has a schedule reference. For more information about example optional schedule configurations, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/datapipeline/latest/DeveloperGuide/dp-object-schedule.html Reference Object, e.g. "schedule":{"ref":"myScheduleId"}

Optional Fields Description Slot Type
attemptStatus Most recently reported status from the remote activity. String
attemptTimeout Timeout for remote work completion. If set then a remote activity that does not complete within the set time of starting may be retried. Period
compression The type of compression for the data described by the S3DataNode. "none" is no compression and "gzip" is compressed with the gzip algorithm. This field is only supported for use with Amazon Redshift and when you use S3DataNode with CopyActivity. Enumeration
dataFormat DataFormat for the data described by this S3DataNode. Reference Object, e.g. "dataFormat":{"ref":"myDataFormatId"}
dependsOn Specify dependency on another runnable object Reference Object, e.g. "dependsOn":{"ref":"myActivityId"}
directoryPath Amazon S3 directory path as a URI: s3://my-bucket/my-key-for-directory. You must provide either a filePath or directoryPath value. String
failureAndRerunMode Describes consumer node behavior when dependencies fail or are rerun Enumeration
filePath The path to the object in Amazon S3 as a URI, for example: s3://my-bucket/my-key-for-file. You must provide either a filePath or directoryPath value. These represent a folder and a file name. Use the directoryPath value to accommodate multiple files in a directory. String
lateAfterTimeout The elapsed time after pipeline start within which the object must complete. It is triggered only when the schedule type is not set to ondemand. Period
manifestFilePath The Amazon S3 path to a manifest file in the format supported by Amazon Redshift. AWS Data Pipeline uses the manifest file to copy the specified Amazon S3 files into the table. This field is valid only when a RedShiftCopyActivity references the S3DataNode. String
maxActiveInstances The maximum number of concurrent active instances of a component. Re-runs do not count toward the number of active instances. Integer
maximumRetries Maximum number attempt retries on failure Integer
onFail An action to run when current object fails. Reference Object, e.g. "onFail":{"ref":"myActionId"}
onLateAction Actions that should be triggered if an object has not yet been scheduled or still not completed. Reference Object, e.g. "onLateAction":{"ref":"myActionId"}
onSuccess An action to run when current object succeeds. Reference Object, e.g. "onSuccess":{"ref":"myActionId"}
parent Parent of the current object from which slots will be inherited. Reference Object, e.g. "parent":{"ref":"myBaseObjectId"}
pipelineLogUri The S3 URI (such as 's3://BucketName/Key/') for uploading logs for the pipeline. String
precondition Optionally define a precondition. A data node is not marked "READY" until all preconditions have been met. Reference Object, e.g. "precondition":{"ref":"myPreconditionId"}
reportProgressTimeout Timeout for remote work successive calls to reportProgress. If set, then remote activities that do not report progress for the specified period may be considered stalled and so retried. Period
retryDelay The timeout duration between two retry attempts. Period
runsOn The computational resource to run the activity or command. For example, an Amazon EC2 instance or Amazon EMR cluster. Reference Object, e.g. "runsOn":{"ref":"myResourceId"}
s3EncryptionType Overrides the Amazon S3 encryption type. Values are SERVER_SIDE_ENCRYPTION or NONE. Server-side encryption is enabled by default. Enumeration
scheduleType Schedule type allows you to specify whether the objects in your pipeline definition should be scheduled at the beginning of interval or end of the interval. Time Series Style Scheduling means instances are scheduled at the end of each interval and Cron Style Scheduling means instances are scheduled at the beginning of each interval. An on-demand schedule allows you to run a pipeline one time per activation. This means you do not have to clone or re-create the pipeline to run it again. If you use an on-demand schedule it must be specified in the default object and must be the only scheduleType specified for objects in the pipeline. To use on-demand pipelines, you simply call the ActivatePipeline operation for each subsequent run. Values are: cron, ondemand, and timeseries. Enumeration
workerGroup The worker group. This is used for routing tasks. If you provide a runsOn value and workerGroup exists, workerGroup is ignored. String
