Using Amazon SageMaker Feature Store in the console - Amazon SageMaker

Using Amazon SageMaker Feature Store in the console

You can use Amazon SageMaker Feature Store on the console to create, view, update, and monitor your feature groups. Monitoring in this guide includes viewing pipeline executions and lineage of your feature groups. This guide provides instructions on how to achieve these tasks from the console.

For Feature Store examples and resources using the Amazon SageMaker APIs and AWS SDK for Python (Boto3), see Amazon SageMaker Feature Store resources.

Create a feature group from the console

The create feature group process has four steps:

  1. Enter feature group information.

  2. Enter feature definitions.

  3. Enter required features.

  4. Enter feature group tags.

Consider which of the following options fits your use case:

  • Create an online store, an offline store, or both. For more information about the differences between online and offline stores, see Feature Store concepts.

  • Use a default AWS Key Management Service key or your own KMS key. The default key is AWS KMS key (SSE-KMS). You can reduce AWS KMS request costs by configuring use of Amazon S3 Bucket Keys on the offline store Amazon S3 bucket. The Amazon S3 Bucket Key must be enabled before using the bucket for your feature groups. For more information about reducing the cost by using Amazon S3 Bucket Keys, see Reducing the cost of SSE-KMS with Amazon S3 Bucket Keys.

    You can use the same key for both online and offline stores, or have a unique key for each. For more information about AWS KMS, see AWS Key Management Service.

  • If you create an offline store:

    • Decide if you want to create an Amazon S3 bucket or use an existing one. When using an existing one, you must know the Amazon S3 bucket URL or Amazon S3 bucket name and dataset directory name, if applicable.

    • Choose which Amazon Resource Name (ARN) to use to specify the IAM role. For more information about how to find your role and attached policies, see Adding policies to your IAM role.

    • Decide whether to use the AWS Glue (default) or Apache Iceberg table format. In most use cases, you use the Apache Iceberg table format. For more information about table formats, see Use Feature Store with SDK for Python (Boto3).

You can use the console to view the lineage of a feature group. The instructions for using Feature Store on the console vary depending on whether you enabled Amazon SageMaker Studio or Amazon SageMaker Studio Classic as your default experience.

  1. Open the Studio console by following the instructions in Launch Amazon SageMaker Studio.

  2. Choose Data from the left navigation pane to expand the dropdown list.

  3. From the dropdown list, choose Feature Store.

  4. Choose Create feature group.

  5. Under Feature group details, enter a feature group name.

  6. (Optional) Enter a description of the feature group.

  7. Under Feature group storage configuration, choose a storage configuration from the dropdown list. For information about storage configurations, see Feature Store storage configurations.

  8. If you have chosen to enable the online storage:

    1. If you only enable the online storage, you can choose a Storage type from the dropdown list. For information about online store storage types, see Online store.

    2. (Optional) Apply Time to Live (TTL) by toggling the switch to On and specifying the Time to Live duration value and unit. This will update the default TTL duration for all records added to the feature group after the feature group is created. For more information about TTL, see Time to live (TTL) duration for records.

  9. If you have chosen to enable the offline storage:

    1. Under the Amazon S3 bucket name, enter a new bucket name, or enter an existing bucket URL, manually.

    2. From the Table format dropdown list, choose the table format. In most use cases, you should use the Apache Iceberg table format. For more information about table formats, see Use Feature Store with SDK for Python (Boto3).

    3. Under IAM role ARN, choose the IAM role ARN you want to attach to this feature group. For more information about how to find your role and attached policies, see Adding policies to your IAM role.

    4. If you have chosen to enable the offline storage Table format and AWS Glue (default) Table format, under Data catalog, you can choose one of the following two options:

      • Use default values for your AWS Glue Data Catalog.

      • Provide your existing Data Catalog name, table name, and database name to extend your existing AWS Glue Data Catalog.

  10. Under the Online store encryption key or Offline store encryption key dropdown list, choose one of the following options:

    • Use AWS managed AWS KMS key (default)

    • Enter an AWS KMS key ARN and enter your AWS KMS key ARN under Offline store encryption key ARN. For more information about AWS KMS, see AWS Key Management Service.

  11. If applicable, you will have the option to choose your throughput mode, which impacts how you are charged.

Choose + Add feature definitions to include more features. Be aware that you cannot remove feature definitions from your feature groups. However, you can add and update feature definitions after the feature group is created.

    There must be at least two features in a feature group that represent the record identifier and event time:

    • The record Feature type can be a string, fractional, or an integral.

    • The event time Feature type must be a string or a fractional. However, if you chose the Iceberg table format, the event time must be a string.
