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.
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?¶
Go to AWS IoT console and then go to
Things. It will display all previously created Things, select one of the options.Figure 2. AWS IoT Things on AWS console
When you select one of the
Thingsyou will be guided to the detail page of that particular thing. This page shows the attribute list related to that Thing. If you want to add more attributes, click on the
editbutton as shown in Figure 3 and add more attributes as required.Figure 3. AWS IoT Things on AWS consoleFigure 4. AWS IoT Attributes
