AWS::KinesisAnalyticsV2::Application Input

When you configure the application input for a SQL-based Kinesis Data Analytics application, you specify the streaming source, the in-application stream name that is created, and the mapping between the two.


To declare this entity in your Amazon CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:



Describes the number of in-application streams to create.

Required: No

Type: InputParallelism

Update requires: No interruption


The InputProcessingConfiguration for the input. An input processor transforms records as they are received from the stream, before the application's SQL code executes. Currently, the only input processing configuration available is InputLambdaProcessor.

Required: No

Type: InputProcessingConfiguration

Update requires: No interruption


Describes the format of the data in the streaming source, and how each data element maps to corresponding columns in the in-application stream that is being created.

Also used to describe the format of the reference data source.

Required: Yes

Type: InputSchema

Update requires: No interruption


If the streaming source is an Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream, identifies the delivery stream's ARN.

Required: No

Type: KinesisFirehoseInput

Update requires: No interruption


If the streaming source is an Amazon Kinesis data stream, identifies the stream's Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

Required: No

Type: KinesisStreamsInput

Update requires: No interruption


The name prefix to use when creating an in-application stream. Suppose that you specify a prefix "MyInApplicationStream." Kinesis Data Analytics then creates one or more (as per the InputParallelism count you specified) in-application streams with the names "MyInApplicationStream_001," "MyInApplicationStream_002," and so on.

Required: Yes

Type: String

Pattern: ^[^-\s<>&]*$
