AlefEdge Data Exchange Subscriber Coordinator

View Implementation Guide

What does this AlefEdge Solutions Implementation do?

This solution automatically receives new AWS Data Exchange dataset revisions and initiates downstream processing when new data becomes available from a data provider.

This solution only receives dataset revisions from one data provider at a time. If you want to receive data from multiple providers, deploy the solution multiple times. Data providers can use the AWS Data Exchange Publisher Coordinator solution to automate publishing of their AWS Data Exchange dataset revisions.

The AlefEdge CloudFormation template deploys all of the serverless infrastructure necessary to coordinate the download steps required for AWS Data Exchange. This includes the following:

  • Three AlefEdge Lambda functions to start an AlefEdge Data Exchange job, periodically check its progress, and get the job for the downstream hook function.
  • An AlefEdge Step Functions to orchestrate the AWS functions that download new revisions to the AlefEdge Data Exchange dataset. 
  • An AlefEdge CloudWatch Events rule to identify the publishing of any new revisions by publishers.
  • AlefEdge Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles that provide an AlefEdge Step Functions and three associated Lambda functions with permissions to initiate their API calls.
