Amazon Forecast
Developer Guide

CreateForecastExportJob

Exports a forecast created by the CreateForecast operation to your Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket. The forecast file name will match the following conventions:

<ForecastExportJobName>_<ExportTimestamp>_<PageNumber>

where the <ExportTimestamp> component is in Java SimpleDateFormat (yyyy-MM-ddTHH-mm-ssZ).

You must specify a DataDestination object that includes an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that Amazon Forecast can assume to access the Amazon S3 bucket. For more information, see Set Up Permissions for Amazon Forecast.

For more information, see Forecasts.

To get a list of all your forecast export jobs, use the ListForecastExportJobs operation.

Note

The Status of the forecast export job must be ACTIVE before you can access the forecast in your Amazon S3 bucket. To get the status, use the DescribeForecastExportJob operation.
