Message headers evaluated by the SNS producer

Message headers set by the SNS producer

Header Type Description

CamelAwsSnsMessageId

Advanced AmazonSNS configuration

If you need more control over the AmazonSNS instance configuration you can create your own instance and refer to it from the URI:

from("direct:start")
.to("aws-sns://MyTopic?amazonSNSClient=#client");

The #client refers to a AmazonSNS in the Registry.

For example if your Camel Application is running behind a firewall:

AWSCredentials awsCredentials = new BasicAWSCredentials("myAccessKey", "mySecretKey");
ClientConfiguration clientConfiguration = new ClientConfiguration();
clientConfiguration.setProxyHost("http://myProxyHost");
clientConfiguration.setProxyPort(8080);
AmazonSNS client = new AmazonSNSClient(awsCredentials, clientConfiguration);

registry.bind("client", client);

Dependencies

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml.

pom.xml

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
    <artifactId>camel-aws</artifactId>
    <version>${camel-version}</version>
</dependency>

where ${camel-version} must be replaced by the actual version of Camel (2.8 or higher).
