Creates a Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream.
By default, you can create up to 50 delivery streams per AWS Region.
This is an asynchronous operation that immediately returns. The initial status of
the delivery stream is
CREATING. After the delivery stream is created,
its status is
ACTIVE and it now accepts data. Attempts to send data to
a delivery stream that is not in the
ACTIVE state cause an exception.
To check the state of a delivery stream, use DescribeDeliveryStream.
A Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream can be configured to receive records directly
from providers using PutRecord or PutRecordBatch, or it can be configured
to use an existing Kinesis stream as its source. To specify a Kinesis data stream
as input, set the
DeliveryStreamType parameter to
and provide the Kinesis stream Amazon Resource Name (ARN) and role ARN in the
A delivery stream is configured with a single destination: Amazon S3, Amazon ES, Amazon Redshift, or Splunk. You must specify only one of the following destination configuration parameters: ExtendedS3DestinationConfiguration, S3DestinationConfiguration, ElasticsearchDestinationConfiguration, RedshiftDestinationConfiguration, or SplunkDestinationConfiguration.
When you specify S3DestinationConfiguration, you can also provide the following optional values: BufferingHints, EncryptionConfiguration, and CompressionFormat. By default, if no BufferingHints value is provided, Kinesis Data Firehose buffers data up to 5 MB or for 5 minutes, whichever condition is satisfied first. BufferingHints is a hint, so there are some cases where the service cannot adhere to these conditions strictly. For example, record boundaries might be such that the size is a little over or under the configured buffering size. By default, no encryption is performed. We strongly recommend that you enable encryption to ensure secure data storage in Amazon S3.
A few notes about Amazon Redshift as a destination:
An Amazon Redshift destination requires an S3 bucket as intermediate location. Kinesis
Data Firehose first delivers data to Amazon S3 and then uses
to load data into an Amazon Redshift table. This is specified in the RedshiftDestinationConfiguration.S3Configuration
The compression formats
ZIP cannot be specified
RedshiftDestinationConfiguration.S3Configuration because the Amazon
COPY operation that reads from the S3 bucket doesn't support
these compression formats.
We strongly recommend that you use the user name and password you provide exclusively
with Kinesis Data Firehose, and that the permissions for the account are restricted
for Amazon Redshift
Kinesis Data Firehose assumes the IAM role that is configured as part of the destination. The role should allow the Kinesis Data Firehose principal to assume the role, and the role should have permissions that allow the service to deliver the data. For more information, see Grant Kinesis Data Firehose Access to an Amazon S3 Destination in the Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose Developer Guide.
For .NET Core, PCL and Unity this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CreateDeliveryStreamAsync.
