Choose storage location for your event dataset

As part of the model version configuration, Amazon Fraud Detector requires you to specify where your events data is stored. Amazon Fraud Detector supports two types of storage for your dataset. External storage and Internal storage.

  • External storage - Event data is stored in a data source other than Amazon Fraud Detector. Currently Amazon Fraud Detector supports event data stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service(Amazon S3).

    This option is referred to within the model training configuration as EXTERNAL_EVENTS.

  • Internal storage - Event data is stored in Amazon Fraud Detector. Events are stored at the Event Type resource level, so all events of the same Event Type are stored together in a single Event Type dataset. You can store or update events in Amazon Fraud Detector using the GetEventPrediction or SendEvent API operation. Or, you can import large datasets (upto 1GB) using batch import feature.When training a model using internal storage, you can optionally specify a time range of events to limit the size of your training dataset.

    This option is referred to within the model training configuration as INGESTED_EVENTS and as Stored events in the Amazon Fraud Detector console.
