Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-8416) Kinesis consumer doc examples should demonstrate preferred default credentials provider
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2018 00:04:00 GMT
Tzu-Li (Gordon) Tai created FLINK-8416:
------------------------------------------

             Summary: Kinesis consumer doc examples should demonstrate preferred default credentials
provider
                 Key: FLINK-8416
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-8416
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Documentation, Kinesis Connector
            Reporter: Tzu-Li (Gordon) Tai
             Fix For: 1.3.3, 1.5.0, 1.4.1


The Kinesis consumer docs [here](https://ci.apache.org/projects/flink/flink-docs-release-1.5/dev/connectors/kinesis.html#kinesis-consumer)
demonstrate providing credentials by explicitly supplying the AWS Access ID and Key.

The always preferred approach for AWS, unless running locally, is to automatically fetch the
shipped credentials from the AWS environment.

That is actually the default behaviour of the Kinesis consumer, so the docs should demonstrate
that more clearly.
