Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-4222) Allow Kinesis configuration to get credentials from AWS Metadata
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2016 23:41:20 GMT
Nick Chadwick created FLINK-4222:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Allow Kinesis configuration to get credentials from AWS Metadata
                 Key: FLINK-4222
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-4222
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Streaming Connectors
    Affects Versions: 1.0.3
            Reporter: Nick Chadwick
            Priority: Minor


When deploying Flink TaskManagers in an EC2 environment, it would be nice to be able to use
the EC2 IAM Role credentials provided by the EC2 Metadata service.

This allows for credentials to be automatically discovered by services running on EC2 instances
at runtime, and removes the need to explicitly create and assign credentials to TaskManagers.

This should be a fairly small change to the configuration of the flink-connector-kinesis,
which will greatly improve the ease of deployment to Amazon EC2
