Stream objects on upload with SQS

A common pattern for consuming S3 objects is to emit upload notification events from the bucket either directly to an SQS queue, or to an SNS topic that is consumed by an SQS queue, and then have your consumer listen for events which prompt it to download the newly uploaded objects. More information about this pattern and how to set it up can be found at: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/ways-to-add-notification-config-to-bucket.html.

Redpanda Connect is able to follow this pattern when you configure an sqs.url, where it consumes events from SQS and only downloads object keys received within those events. In order for this to work Redpanda Connect needs to know where within the event the key and bucket names can be found, specified as dot paths with the fields sqs.key_path and sqs.bucket_path. The default values for these fields should already be correct when following the guide above.

If your notification events are being routed to SQS via an SNS topic then the events will be enveloped by SNS, in which case you also need to specify the field sqs.envelope_path, which in the case of SNS to SQS will usually be Message.

When using SQS please make sure you have sensible values for sqs.max_messages and also the visibility timeout of the queue itself. When Redpanda Connect consumes an S3 object the SQS message that triggered it is not deleted until the S3 object has been sent onwards. This ensures at-least-once crash resiliency, but also means that if the S3 object takes longer to process than the visibility timeout of your queue then the same objects might be processed multiple times.

Download large files

When downloading large files it’s often necessary to process it in streamed parts in order to avoid loading the entire file in memory at a given time. To do this, a scanner can be specified, which determines how to break the input into smaller individual messages.

Credentials

By default Redpanda Connect will use a shared credentials file when connecting to AWS services. It’s also possible to set them explicitly at the component level, allowing you to transfer data across accounts. You can find out more in Amazon Web Services.

Metadata

This input adds the following metadata fields to each message:

- s3_key
- s3_bucket
- s3_last_modified_unix
- s3_last_modified (RFC3339)
- s3_content_type
- s3_content_encoding
- s3_version_id
- All user defined metadata

You can access these metadata fields using function interpolation. Note that user defined metadata is case insensitive within AWS, and it is likely that the keys will be received in a capitalized form, if you wish to make them consistent you can map all metadata keys to lower or uppercase using a Bloblang mapping such as meta = meta().map_each_key(key → key.lowercase()).

Fields

bucket

The bucket to consume from. If the field sqs.url is specified this field is optional.

Type: string

Default: ""

prefix

An optional path prefix, if set only objects with the prefix are consumed when walking a bucket.

Type: string

Default: ""

region

The AWS region to target.

Type: string

Default: ""

endpoint

Allows you to specify a custom endpoint for the AWS API.

Type: string

Default: ""

credentials

Optional manual configuration of AWS credentials to use. More information can be found in Amazon Web Services.

Type: object

credentials.profile

A profile from ~/.aws/credentials to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

credentials.id

The ID of credentials to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

credentials.secret

The secret for the credentials being used.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

credentials.token

The token for the credentials being used, required when using short term credentials.

Type: string

Default: ""

credentials.from_ec2_role

Use the credentials of a host EC2 machine configured to assume an IAM role associated with the instance.

Type: bool

Default: false Requires version 4.2.0 or newer

credentials.role

A role ARN to assume.

Type: string

Default: ""

credentials.role_external_id

An external ID to provide when assuming a role.

Type: string

Default: ""

force_path_style_urls

Forces the client API to use path style URLs for downloading keys, which is often required when connecting to custom endpoints.

Type: bool

Default: false

delete_objects

Whether to delete downloaded objects from the bucket once they are processed.

Type: bool

Default: false

scanner

The scanner by which the stream of bytes consumed will be broken out into individual messages. Scanners are useful for processing large sources of data without holding the entirety of it within memory. For example, the csv scanner allows you to process individual CSV rows without loading the entire CSV file in memory at once.

Type: scanner

Default: {"to_the_end":{}} Requires version 4.25.0 or newer

sqs

Consume SQS messages in order to trigger key downloads.

Type: object

sqs.url

An optional SQS URL to connect to. When specified this queue will control which objects are downloaded.

Type: string

Default: ""

sqs.endpoint

A custom endpoint to use when connecting to SQS.

Type: string

Default: ""

sqs.key_path

A dot path whereby object keys are found in SQS messages.

Type: string

Default: "Records.*.s3.object.key"

sqs.bucket_path

A dot path whereby the bucket name can be found in SQS messages.

Type: string

Default: "Records.*.s3.bucket.name"

sqs.envelope_path

A dot path of a field to extract an enveloped JSON payload for further extracting the key and bucket from SQS messages. This is specifically useful when subscribing an SQS queue to an SNS topic that receives bucket events.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

envelope_path: Message

sqs.delay_period

An optional period of time to wait from when a notification was originally sent to when the target key download is attempted.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

delay_period: 10s

delay_period: 5m

sqs.max_messages

The maximum number of SQS messages to consume from each request.

Type: int

Default: 10

sqs.wait_time_seconds

Whether to set the wait time. Enabling this activates long-polling. Valid values: 0 to 20.

Type: int

Default: 0
