aws ddb sink AWS DynamoDB Sink

Provided by: "Apache Software Foundation"

Support Level for this Kamelet is: "Stable"

Send data to Amazon DynamoDB. The sent data inserts, updates, or deletes an item on the specified AWS DynamoDB table.

The basic authentication method for the AWS DynamoDB service is to specify an access key and a secret key. These parameters are optional because the Kamelet provides a default credentials provider.

If you use the default credentials provider, the DynamoDB client loads the credentials through this provider and doesn’t use the basic authentication method.

This Kamelet expects a JSON-formatted body and it must include the primary key values that define the DynamoDB item. The mapping between the JSON fields and table attribute values is done by key. For example, for '{"username":"oscerd", "city":"Rome"}' input, the Kamelet inserts or update an item in the specified AWS DynamoDB table and sets the values for the 'username' and 'city' attributes.

Dependencies

At runtime, the aws-ddb-sink Kamelet relies upon the presence of the following dependencies:

  • mvn:org.apache.camel.kamelets:camel-kamelets-utils:0.9.0

  • camel:core

  • camel:jackson

  • camel:aws2-ddb

  • camel:kamelet

  • mvn:software.amazon.awssdk:utils:2.17.223

Usage

This section describes how you can use the aws-ddb-sink.

Knative sink

You can use the aws-ddb-sink Kamelet as a Knative sink by binding it to a Knative object.

aws-ddb-sink-binding.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
kind: KameletBinding
metadata:
  name: aws-ddb-sink-binding
spec:
  source:
    ref:
      kind: Channel
      apiVersion: messaging.knative.dev/v1
      name: mychannel
  sink:
    ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
      name: aws-ddb-sink
    properties:
      region: The AWS Region
      table: The Table

Prerequisite

You have Camel K installed on the cluster.

Procedure for using the cluster CLI

  1. Save the aws-ddb-sink-binding.yaml file to your local drive, and then edit it as needed for your configuration.

  2. Run the sink by using the following command:

    kubectl apply -f aws-ddb-sink-binding.yaml

Procedure for using the Kamel CLI

Configure and run the sink by using the following command:

kamel bind aws-ddb-sink -p "sink.region=The AWS Region" -p "sink.table=The Table" channel:mychannel

This command creates the KameletBinding in the current namespace on the cluster.

Kafka sink

You can use the aws-ddb-sink Kamelet as a Kafka sink by binding it to a Kafka topic.

aws-ddb-sink-binding.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
kind: KameletBinding
metadata:
  name: aws-ddb-sink-binding
spec:
  source:
    ref:
      kind: KafkaTopic
      apiVersion: kafka.strimzi.io/v1beta1
      name: my-topic
  sink:
    ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
      name: aws-ddb-sink
    properties:
      region: The AWS Region
      table: The Table

Prerequisites

  • You’ve installed Strimzi.

  • You’ve created a topic named my-topic in the current namespace.

  • You have Camel K installed on the cluster.

Procedure for using the cluster CLI

  1. Save the aws-ddb-sink-binding.yaml file to your local drive, and then edit it as needed for your configuration.

  2. Run the sink by using the following command:

    kubectl apply -f aws-ddb-sink-binding.yaml

Procedure for using the Kamel CLI

Configure and run the sink by using the following command:

kamel bind aws-ddb-sink -p "sink.region=The AWS Region" -p "sink.table=The Table" kafka.strimzi.io/v1beta1:KafkaTopic:my-topic

This command creates the KameletBinding in the current namespace on the cluster.
