Before you use a Kinesis target service, perform the following tasks:
- In the Amazon Kinesis console, create and configure an Amazon Kinesis stream.
- In the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Identity and Access Management (IAM) service, create a user.
- Download the access key and secret access key that are generated during the user creation process.
- Associate the user with a group that has permissions to write to the Kinesis stream.
