OpenSearch - Amazon IoT Core
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

OpenSearch

The OpenSearch (openSearch) action writes data from MQTT messages to an Amazon OpenSearch Service domain. You can then use tools like OpenSearch Dashboards to query and visualize data in OpenSearch Service.

Requirements

This rule action has the following requirements:

  • An IAM role that Amazon IoT can assume to perform the es:ESHttpPut operation. For more information, see Granting Amazon IoT the required access.

    In the Amazon IoT console, you can choose or create a role to allow Amazon IoT to perform this rule action.

  • If you use a customer-managed Amazon KMS key (KMS key) to encrypt data at rest in OpenSearch Service, the service must have permission to use the KMS key on the caller's behalf. For more information, see Encryption of data at rest for Amazon OpenSearch Service in the Amazon OpenSearch Service Developer Guide.

Examples

The following JSON example defines an OpenSearch action in an Amazon IoT rule and how you can specify the fields for the OpenSearch action. For more information, see OpenSearchAction.

{ "topicRulePayload": { "sql": "SELECT *, timestamp() as timestamp FROM 'iot/test'", "ruleDisabled": false, "awsIotSqlVersion": "2016-03-23", "actions": [ { "openSearch": { "endpoint": "https://my-endpoint", "index": "my-index", "type": "my-type", "id": "${newuuid()}", "roleArn": "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/aws_iot_os" } } ] } }

The following JSON example defines an OpenSearch action with substitution templates in an Amazon IoT rule.
