Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Service Description

Provides APIs for creating and managing Amazon Forecast resources.

Sending a Request Using ForecastService

var forecastservice = new AWS.ForecastService();
forecastservice.createDataset(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the ForecastService object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var forecastservice = new AWS.ForecastService({apiVersion: '2018-06-26'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the forecastservice service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  forecastservice: '2018-06-26',
  // other service API versions
};

var forecastservice = new AWS.ForecastService();

Method Details

createDataset(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates an Amazon Forecast dataset. The information about the dataset that you provide helps Forecast understand how to consume the data for model training. This includes the following:

  • DataFrequency - How frequently your historical time-series data is collected.

  • Domain and DatasetType - Each dataset has an associated dataset domain and a type within the domain. Amazon Forecast provides a list of predefined domains and types within each domain. For each unique dataset domain and type within the domain, Amazon Forecast requires your data to include a minimum set of predefined fields.

  • Schema - A schema specifies the fields in the dataset, including the field name and data type.

After creating a dataset, you import your training data into it and add the dataset to a dataset group. You use the dataset group to create a predictor. For more information, see howitworks-datasets-groups.

To get a list of all your datasets, use the ListDatasets operation.

For example Forecast datasets, see the Amazon Forecast Sample GitHub repository.

Note: The Status of a dataset must be ACTIVE before you can import training data. Use the DescribeDataset operation to get the status.

      Possible values include:
      • "TARGET_TIME_SERIES"
      • "RELATED_TIME_SERIES"
      • "ITEM_METADATA"
    • DataFrequency — (String)

      The frequency of data collection. This parameter is required for RELATED_TIME_SERIES datasets.

      Valid intervals are Y (Year), M (Month), W (Week), D (Day), H (Hour), 30min (30 minutes), 15min (15 minutes), 10min (10 minutes), 5min (5 minutes), and 1min (1 minute). For example, "D" indicates every day and "15min" indicates every 15 minutes.

    • Schema — (map)

      The schema for the dataset. The schema attributes and their order must match the fields in your data. The dataset Domain and DatasetType that you choose determine the minimum required fields in your training data. For information about the required fields for a specific dataset domain and type, see howitworks-domains-ds-types.

      • Attributes — (Array<map>)

        An array of attributes specifying the name and type of each field in a dataset.

        • AttributeName — (String)

          The name of the dataset field.

        • AttributeType — (String)

          The data type of the field.

          Possible values include:
          • "string"
          • "integer"
          • "float"
          • "timestamp"
          • "geolocation"
    • EncryptionConfig — (map)

      An AWS Key Management Service (KMS) key and the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that Amazon Forecast can assume to access the key.

      • RoleArnrequired — (String)

        The ARN of the IAM role that Amazon Forecast can assume to access the AWS KMS key.

        Passing a role across AWS accounts is not allowed. If you pass a role that isn't in your account, you get an InvalidInputException error.

      • KMSKeyArnrequired — (String)

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the KMS key.

    • Tags — (Array<map>)

      The optional metadata that you apply to the dataset to help you categorize and organize them. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define.

      The following basic restrictions apply to tags:

      • Maximum number of tags per resource - 50.

      • For each resource, each tag key must be unique, and each tag key can have only one value.

      • Maximum key length - 128 Unicode characters in UTF-8.

      • Maximum value length - 256 Unicode characters in UTF-8.

      • If your tagging schema is used across multiple services and resources, remember that other services may have restrictions on allowed characters. Generally allowed characters are: letters, numbers, and spaces representable in UTF-8, and the following characters: + - = . _ : / @.

      • Tag keys and values are case sensitive.

      • Do not use aws:, AWS:, or any upper or lowercase combination of such as a prefix for keys as it is reserved for AWS use. You cannot edit or delete tag keys with this prefix. Values can have this prefix. If a tag value has aws as its prefix but the key does not, then Forecast considers it to be a user tag and will count against the limit of 50 tags. Tags with only the key prefix of aws do not count against your tags per resource limit.

      • Keyrequired — (String)

        One part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A key is a general label that acts like a category for more specific tag values.

      • Valuerequired — (String)

        The optional part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A value acts as a descriptor within a tag category (key).

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

      • DatasetArn — (String)

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the dataset.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createDatasetGroup(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates a dataset group, which holds a collection of related datasets. You can add datasets to the dataset group when you create the dataset group, or later by using the UpdateDatasetGroup operation.

After creating a dataset group and adding datasets, you use the dataset group when you create a predictor. For more information, see howitworks-datasets-groups.

To get a list of all your datasets groups, use the ListDatasetGroups operation.

createDatasetImportJob(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Imports your training data to an Amazon Forecast dataset. You provide the location of your training data in an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket and the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the dataset that you want to import the data to.

You must specify a DataSource object that includes an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that Amazon Forecast can assume to access the data, as Amazon Forecast makes a copy of your data and processes it in an internal AWS system. For more information, see aws-forecast-iam-roles.

The training data must be in CSV format. The delimiter must be a comma (,).

You can specify the path to a specific CSV file, the S3 bucket, or to a folder in the S3 bucket. For the latter two cases, Amazon Forecast imports all files up to the limit of 10,000 files.

Because dataset imports are not aggregated, your most recent dataset import is the one that is used when training a predictor or generating a forecast. Make sure that your most recent dataset import contains all of the data you want to model off of, and not just the new data collected since the previous import.

To get a list of all your dataset import jobs, filtered by specified criteria, use the ListDatasetImportJobs operation.

Examples:

Calling the createDatasetImportJob operation

var params = {
  DataSource: { /* required */
    S3Config: { /* required */
      Path: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */

Values can have this prefix. If a tag value has aws as its prefix but the key does not, then Forecast considers it to be a user tag and will count against the limit of 50 tags. Tags with only the key prefix of aws do not count against your tags per resource limit.

      • Keyrequired — (String)

        One part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A key is a general label that acts like a category for more specific tag values.

      • Valuerequired — (String)

        The optional part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A value acts as a descriptor within a tag category (key).

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • DatasetImportJobArn — (String)

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the dataset import job.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createForecast(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates a forecast for each item in the TARGET_TIME_SERIES dataset that was used to train the predictor. This is known as inference. To retrieve the forecast for a single item at low latency, use the operation. To export the complete forecast into your Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket, use the CreateForecastExportJob operation.

The range of the forecast is determined by the ForecastHorizon value, which you specify in the CreatePredictor request. When you query a forecast, you can request a specific date range within the forecast.

To get a list of all your forecasts, use the ListForecasts operation.

Note: The forecasts generated by Amazon Forecast are in the same time zone as the dataset that was used to create the predictor.

For more information, see howitworks-forecast.

Note: The Status of the forecast must be ACTIVE before you can query or export the forecast. Use the DescribeForecast operation to get the status.

createPredictor(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates an Amazon Forecast predictor.

In the request, provide a dataset group and either specify an algorithm or let Amazon Forecast choose an algorithm for you using AutoML. If you specify an algorithm, you also can override algorithm-specific hyperparameters.

Amazon Forecast uses the algorithm to train a predictor using the latest version of the datasets in the specified dataset group. You can then generate a forecast using the CreateForecast operation.

To see the evaluation metrics, use the GetAccuracyMetrics operation.

You can specify a featurization configuration to fill and aggregate the data fields in the TARGET_TIME_SERIES dataset to improve model training. For more information, see FeaturizationConfig.

For RELATED_TIME_SERIES datasets, CreatePredictor verifies that the DataFrequency specified when the dataset was created matches the ForecastFrequency. TARGET_TIME_SERIES datasets don't have this restriction. Amazon Forecast also verifies the delimiter and timestamp format. For more information, see howitworks-datasets-groups.

By default, predictors are trained and evaluated at the 0.1 (P10), 0.5 (P50), and 0.9 (P90) quantiles. You can choose custom forecast types to train and evaluate your predictor by setting the ForecastTypes.

AutoML

If you want Amazon Forecast to evaluate each algorithm and choose the one that minimizes the objective function, set PerformAutoML to true. The objective function is defined as the mean of the weighted losses over the forecast types. By default, these are the p10, p50, and p90 quantile losses. For more information, see EvaluationResult.

When AutoML is enabled, the following properties are disallowed:

  • AlgorithmArn

  • HPOConfig

  • PerformHPO

  • TrainingParameters

To get a list of all of your predictors, use the ListPredictors operation.

Note: Before you can use the predictor to create a forecast, the Status of the predictor must be ACTIVE, signifying that training has completed. To get the status, use the DescribePredictor operation.

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • PredictorName — (String)

      A name for the predictor.

    • AlgorithmArn — (String)

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the algorithm to use for model training. Required if PerformAutoML is not set to true.

      Supported algorithms:

      • arn:aws:forecast:::algorithm/ARIMA

      • arn:aws:forecast:::algorithm/CNN-QR

      • arn:aws:forecast:::algorithm/Deep_AR_Plus

      • arn:aws:forecast:::algorithm/ETS

      • arn:aws:forecast:::algorithm/NPTS

      • arn:aws:forecast:::algorithm/Prophet

    • ForecastHorizon — (Integer)

      Specifies the number of time-steps that the model is trained to predict. The forecast horizon is also called the prediction length.

      For example, if you configure a dataset for daily data collection (using the DataFrequency parameter of the CreateDataset operation) and set the forecast horizon to 10, the model returns predictions for 10 days.

      The maximum forecast horizon is the lesser of 500 time-steps or 1/3 of the TARGET_TIME_SERIES dataset length.

    • ForecastTypes — (Array<String>)

      Specifies the forecast types used to train a predictor. You can specify up to five forecast types. Forecast types can be quantiles from 0.01 to 0.99, by increments of 0.01 or higher. You can also specify the mean forecast with mean.

      The default value is ["0.10", "0.50", "0.9"].

    • PerformAutoML — (Boolean)

      Whether to perform AutoML. When Amazon Forecast performs AutoML, it evaluates the algorithms it provides and chooses the best algorithm and configuration for your training dataset.

      The default value is false. In this case, you are required to specify an algorithm.

      Set PerformAutoML to true to have Amazon Forecast perform AutoML. This is a good option if you aren't sure which algorithm is suitable for your training data. In this case, PerformHPO must be false.

    • AutoMLOverrideStrategy — (String)

      Used to overide the default AutoML strategy, which is to optimize predictor accuracy. To apply an AutoML strategy that minimizes training time, use LatencyOptimized.

      This parameter is only valid for predictors trained using AutoML.

      Possible values include:
      • "LatencyOptimized"
    • PerformHPO — (Boolean)

      Whether to perform hyperparameter optimization (HPO). HPO finds optimal hyperparameter values for your training data. The process of performing HPO is known as running a hyperparameter tuning job.

      The default value is false. In this case, Amazon Forecast uses default hyperparameter values from the chosen algorithm.

      To override the default values, set PerformHPO to true and, optionally, supply the HyperParameterTuningJobConfig object. The tuning job specifies a metric to optimize, which hyperparameters participate in tuning, and the valid range for each tunable hyperparameter. In this case, you are required to specify an algorithm and PerformAutoML must be false.

      The following algorithms support HPO:

      • DeepAR+

      • CNN-QR

    • TrainingParameters — (map<String>)

      The hyperparameters to override for model training. The hyperparameters that you can override are listed in the individual algorithms. For the list of supported algorithms, see aws-forecast-choosing-recipes.

    • EvaluationParameters — (map)

      Used to override the default evaluation parameters of the specified algorithm. Amazon Forecast evaluates a predictor by splitting a dataset into training data and testing data. The evaluation parameters define how to perform the split and the number of iterations.

      • NumberOfBacktestWindows — (Integer)

        The number of times to split the input data. The default is 1. Valid values are 1 through 5.

      • BackTestWindowOffset — (Integer)

        The point from the end of the dataset where you want to split the data for model training and testing (evaluation). Specify the value as the number of data points. The default is the value of the forecast horizon. BackTestWindowOffset can be used to mimic a past virtual forecast start date. This value must be greater than or equal to the forecast horizon and less than half of the TARGET_TIME_SERIES dataset length.

        ForecastHorizon <= BackTestWindowOffset < 1/2 * TARGET_TIME_SERIES dataset length

    • HPOConfig — (map)

      Provides hyperparameter override values for the algorithm. If you don't provide this parameter, Amazon Forecast uses default values. The individual algorithms specify which hyperparameters support hyperparameter optimization (HPO). For more information, see aws-forecast-choosing-recipes.

      If you included the HPOConfig object, you must set PerformHPO to true.

      • ParameterRanges — (map)

        Specifies the ranges of valid values for the hyperparameters.

        • CategoricalParameterRanges — (Array<map>)

          Specifies the tunable range for each categorical hyperparameter.

          • MinValuerequired — (Float)

            The minimum tunable value of the hyperparameter.

          • ScalingType — (String)

            The scale that hyperparameter tuning uses to search the hyperparameter range. Valid values:

    • FeaturizationConfig — (map)

      The featurization configuration.

      • ForecastFrequencyrequired — (String)

        The frequency of predictions in a forecast.

        Valid intervals are Y (Year), M (Month), W (Week), D (Day), H (Hour), 30min (30 minutes), 15min (15 minutes), 10min (10 minutes), 5min (5 minutes), and 1min (1 minute). For example, "Y" indicates every year and "5min" indicates every five minutes.

        The frequency must be greater than or equal to the TARGET_TIME_SERIES dataset frequency.

        When a RELATED_TIME_SERIES dataset is provided, the frequency must be equal to the RELATED_TIME_SERIES dataset frequency.

      • ForecastDimensions — (Array<String>)

        An array of dimension (field) names that specify how to group the generated forecast.

        For example, suppose that you are generating a forecast for item sales across all of your stores, and your dataset contains a store_id field. If you want the sales forecast for each item by store, you would specify store_id as the dimension.

        All forecast dimensions specified in the TARGET_TIME_SERIES dataset don't need to be specified in the CreatePredictor request. All forecast dimensions specified in the RELATED_TIME_SERIES dataset must be specified in the CreatePredictor request.

      • Featurizations — (Array<map>)

        An array of featurization (transformation) information for the fields of a dataset.

        • AttributeNamerequired — (String)

          The name of the schema attribute that specifies the data field to be featurized. Amazon Forecast supports the target field of the TARGET_TIME_SERIES and the RELATED_TIME_SERIES datasets. For example, for the RETAIL domain, the target is demand, and for the CUSTOM domain, the target is target_value. For more information, see howitworks-missing-values.

        • FeaturizationPipeline — (Array<map>)

          An array of one FeaturizationMethod object that specifies the feature transformation method.

          • FeaturizationMethodNamerequired — (String)

            The name of the method. The "filling" method is the only supported method.

            Possible values include:
            • "filling"
          • FeaturizationMethodParameters — (map<String>)

            The method parameters (key-value pairs), which are a map of override parameters. Specify these parameters to override the default values. Related Time Series attributes do not accept aggregation parameters.

            The following list shows the parameters and their valid values for the "filling" featurization method for a Target Time Series dataset. Bold signifies the default value.

            • aggregation: sum, avg, first, min, max

            • frontfill: none

            • middlefill: zero, nan (not a number), value, median, mean, min, max

            • backfill: zero, nan, value, median, mean, min, max

            The following list shows the parameters and their valid values for a Related Time Series featurization method (there are no defaults):

            • middlefill: zero, value, median, mean, min, max

            • backfill: zero, value, median, mean, min, max

            • futurefill: zero, value, median, mean, min, max

            To set a filling method to a specific value, set the fill parameter to value and define the value in a corresponding _value parameter. For example, to set backfilling to a value of 2, include the following: "backfill": "value" and "backfill_value":"2".

    • EncryptionConfig — (map)

      An AWS Key Management Service (KMS) key and the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that Amazon Forecast can assume to access the key.

      • RoleArnrequired — (String)

        The ARN of the IAM role that Amazon Forecast can assume to access the AWS KMS key.

        Passing a role across AWS accounts is not allowed. If you pass a role that isn't in your account, you get an InvalidInputException error.

      • KMSKeyArnrequired — (String)

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the KMS key.

    • Tags — (Array<map>)

      The optional metadata that you apply to the predictor to help you categorize and organize them. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define.

      The following basic restrictions apply to tags:

      • Maximum number of tags per resource - 50.

      • For each resource, each tag key must be unique, and each tag key can have only one value.

      • Maximum key length - 128 Unicode characters in UTF-8.

      • Maximum value length - 256 Unicode characters in UTF-8.

      • If your tagging schema is used across multiple services and resources, remember that other services may have restrictions on allowed characters. Generally allowed characters are: letters, numbers, and spaces representable in UTF-8, and the following characters: + - = . _ : / @.

      • Tag keys and values are case sensitive.

      • Do not use aws:, AWS:, or any upper or lowercase combination of such as a prefix for keys as it is reserved for AWS use. You cannot edit or delete tag keys with this prefix. Values can have this prefix. If a tag value has aws as its prefix but the key does not, then Forecast considers it to be a user tag and will count against the limit of 50 tags. Tags with only the key prefix of aws do not count against your tags per resource limit.

      • Keyrequired — (String)

        One part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A key is a general label that acts like a category for more specific tag values.

      • Valuerequired — (String)

        The optional part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A value acts as a descriptor within a tag category (key).

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

Provides metrics on the accuracy of the models that were trained by the CreatePredictor operation. Use metrics to see how well the model performed and to decide whether to use the predictor to generate a forecast. For more information, see Predictor Metrics.

This operation generates metrics for each backtest window that was evaluated. The number of backtest windows (NumberOfBacktestWindows) is specified using the EvaluationParameters object, which is optionally included in the CreatePredictor request. If NumberOfBacktestWindows isn't specified, the number defaults to one.

The parameters of the filling method determine which items contribute to the metrics. If you want all items to contribute, specify zero. If you want only those items that have complete data in the range being evaluated to contribute, specify nan. For more information, see FeaturizationMethod.

Note: Before you can get accuracy metrics, the Status of the predictor must be ACTIVE, signifying that training has completed. To get the status, use the DescribePredictor operation.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the tagResource operation

var params = {
  ResourceArn: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Tags: [ /* required */
    {
      Key: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
      Value: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
    },
    /* more items */
  ]
};
forecastservice.tagResource(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • ResourceArn — (String)

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that identifies the resource for which to list the tags. Currently, the supported resources are Forecast dataset groups, datasets, dataset import jobs, predictors, forecasts, and forecast export jobs.

    • Tags — (Array<map>)

      The tags to add to the resource. A tag is an array of key-value pairs.

      The following basic restrictions apply to tags:

      • Maximum number of tags per resource - 50.

      • For each resource, each tag key must be unique, and each tag key can have only one value.

      • Maximum key length - 128 Unicode characters in UTF-8.

      • Maximum value length - 256 Unicode characters in UTF-8.

      • If your tagging schema is used across multiple services and resources, remember that other services may have restrictions on allowed characters. Generally allowed characters are: letters, numbers, and spaces representable in UTF-8, and the following characters: + - = . _ : / @.

      • Tag keys and values are case sensitive.

      • Do not use aws:, AWS:, or any upper or lowercase combination of such as a prefix for keys as it is reserved for AWS use. You cannot edit or delete tag keys with this prefix. Values can have this prefix. If a tag value has aws as its prefix but the key does not, then Forecast considers it to be a user tag and will count against the limit of 50 tags. Tags with only the key prefix of aws do not count against your tags per resource limit.

      • Keyrequired — (String)

        One part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A key is a general label that acts like a category for more specific tag values.

      • Valuerequired — (String)

        The optional part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A value acts as a descriptor within a tag category (key).

Callback (callback):
