CDK Constructs for Amazon CloudWatch Events Rule to Amazon Kinesis Firehose to Amazon S3 integration.

Project description

aws-events-rule-kinesisfirehose-s3 module


Stability: Deprecated

Some of our early constructs don’t meet the naming standards that evolved for the library. We are releasing completely feature compatible versions with corrected names. The underlying implementation code is the same regardless of whether you deploy the construct using the old or new name. We will support both names for all 1.x releases, but in 2.x we will only publish the correctly named constructs. This construct is being replaced by the functionally identical aws-eventbridge-kinesisfirehose-s3.

This AWS Solutions Construct implements an Amazon CloudWatch Events rule to send data to an Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream connected to an Amazon S3 bucket.

Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition in Typescript:

import * as cdk from '@aws-cdk/core';
import { EventsRuleToKinesisFirehoseToS3, EventsRuleToKinesisFirehoseToS3Props } from '@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-events-rule-kinesisfirehose-s3';

const eventsRuleToKinesisFirehoseToS3Props: EventsRuleToKinesisFirehoseToS3Props = {
    eventRuleProps: {
    schedule: events.Schedule.rate(cdk.Duration.minutes(5))

new EventsRuleToKinesisFirehoseToS3(this, 'test-events-rule-firehose-s3', eventsRuleToKinesisFirehoseToS3Props);


new EventsRuleToKinesisFirehoseToS3(scope: Construct, id: string, props: EventsRuleToKinesisFirehoseToS3Props);


Pattern Construct Props

Name Type Description
existingEventBusInterface? events.IEventBus Optional user-provided custom EventBus for construct to use. Providing both this and eventBusProps results an error.
eventBusProps? events.EventBusProps Optional user-provided properties to override the default properties when creating a custom EventBus. Setting this value to {} will create a custom EventBus using all default properties. If neither this nor existingEventBusInterface is provided the construct will use the default EventBus. Providing both this and existingEventBusInterface results an error.
eventRuleProps events.RuleProps User provided eventRuleProps to override the defaults.
kinesisFirehoseProps? kinesisfirehose.CfnDeliveryStreamProps Optional user provided props to override the default props for Kinesis Firehose Delivery Stream
existingBucketObj? s3.IBucket Existing instance of S3 Bucket object. If this is provided, then also providing bucketProps is an error.
bucketProps? s3.BucketProps User provided props to override the default props for the S3 Bucket.
logGroupProps? logs.LogGroupProps User provided props to override the default props for for the CloudWatchLogs LogGroup.

Pattern Properties

Name Type Description
eventBus? events.IEventBus Returns the instance of events.IEventBus used by the construct
eventsRule events.Rule Returns an instance of events.Rule created by the construct.
kinesisFirehose kinesisfirehose.CfnDeliveryStream Returns an instance of kinesisfirehose.CfnDeliveryStream created by the construct
s3Bucket? s3.Bucket Returns an instance of s3.Bucket created by the construct
s3LoggingBucket? s3.Bucket Returns an instance of s3.Bucket created by the construct as the logging bucket for the primary bucket.
eventsRole iam.Role Returns an instance of the iam.Role created by the construct for Events Rule
kinesisFirehoseRole iam.Role Returns an instance of the iam.Role created by the construct for Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream
kinesisFirehoseLogGroup logs.LogGroup Returns an instance of the LogGroup created by the construct for Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream

Default settings

Out of the box implementation of the Construct without any override will set the following defaults:

Amazon CloudWatch Events Rule

  • Configure least privilege access IAM role for Events Rule to publish to the Kinesis Firehose Delivery Stream.

Amazon Kinesis Firehose

  • Enable CloudWatch logging for Kinesis Firehose
  • Configure least privilege access IAM role for Amazon Kinesis Firehose

Amazon S3 Bucket

  • Configure Access logging for S3 Bucket
  • Enable server-side encryption for S3 Bucket using AWS managed KMS Key
  • Turn on the versioning for S3 Bucket
  • Don't allow public access for S3 Bucket
  • Retain the S3 Bucket when deleting the CloudFormation stack
  • Applies Lifecycle rule to move noncurrent object versions to Glacier storage after 90 days
