AWS S3 Event Filter

Connect iPaaS enables you to select specific events and filter out the rest using certain attributes of the incoming AWS S3 event. This ability allows selective processing of the events of interest.

Event Filters for AWS S3

Figure 1. Event Filters for AWS S3 on Connect iPaaS

In the example shown in Figure 1, the workflow will trigger when an object is created in the AWS S3 bucket robomq and the Object Name without extension starts with connect AND Object Creation Time is after 8/8/2020, 9:00 AM.

The event filters allow you to choose the incoming trigger event's attributes to define the criteria of events to process. In the case of AWS S3, the trigger events can be filtered based on the following attributes:

  • Object Name Extension - Extension of the object. For example pdf, txt, etc.
  • Object Creation Time - Time when the object was created
  • Object Name Without Extension - File name without extension. For example, if an object test.txt is created or deleted in the bucket. This attribute will filter on test
  • Object Size - Size of the object in bytes
