AWS IoT Event Filter

Connect iPaaS enables you to select specific events and filter out the rest using certain attributes of the incoming AWS IoT event. This ability allows selective processing of the events of interest.

Aws IoT Selection Criteria

In the example shown in Figure 1, the workflow will only be triggered when maxValue is equal to 150.

The event filters allows you to choose the attributes of the incoming trigger to define the selection criteria of events to process. In case of AWS IoT, you need to create the attributes while setting up the device.

How to Setup the Attributes on AWS IoT?

  1. Go to AWS IoT console and then go to Things. It will display all previously created Things, select one of the options.
