aws sts assume role action AWS STS Assume Role Action

Provided by: "Apache Software Foundation"

Support Level for this Kamelet is: "Stable"

Assume a role through STS

Access Key/Secret Key are the basic method for authenticating to the AWS STS Service. These parameters are optional because the Kamelet provides the 'useDefaultCredentialsProvider'.

When using a default Credentials Provider the Translate client will load the credentials through this provider and won’t use the static credential. This is reason for not having the access key and secret key as mandatory parameter for this Kamelet.

In the headers, you have to specify the role-arn / ce-role-arn property to specify the role ARN you want to assume.

In the headers, you have to specify the role-session-name / ce-role-session-name property to specify the role Session name you want to use.

At runtime, the aws-sts-assume-role-action Kamelet relies upon the presence of the following dependencies:

  • camel:dns

  • camel:kamelet

  • camel:core

  • camel:aws2-sts

Camel JBang usage


  • You’ve installed JBang.

  • You have executed the following command:

jbang app install camel@apache/camel

Supposing you have a file named route.yaml with this content:

- route:
      uri: "kamelet:timer-source"
        period: 10000
        message: 'test'
        - to:
            uri: "kamelet:aws-sts-assume-role-action"
        - to:
            uri: "kamelet:log-sink"

You can now run it directly through the following command

camel run route.yaml
