Connection Timeout (in msec)
Number of milliseconds that the Integration service waits to establish a connection to the Kinesis Stream or Kinesis Firehose after which it times out.
Authentication Type
The type of authentication.
Select one of the following values:
  • AWS Credential Profile
  • Cross-account IAM Role
The default value is AWS Credential Profile.
AWS Credential Profile Name
Required if you use the AWS credential profile authentication type. An AWS credential profile defined in the credentials file. A mapping accesses the AWS credentials through the profile name at run time.
If you do not provide an AWS credential profile name, the mapping uses the access key ID and secret access key that you specify when you create the connection.
ARN of IAM Role
Required if you use the cross-account IAM role authentication type. The Amazon Resource Name specifying the role of an IAM user.
External ID
Required if you use the cross-account IAM role authentication type and if the external ID is defined by the AWS account. The external ID for an IAM role is an additional restriction that you can use in an IAM role trust policy to designate who can assume the IAM role.
