The Things Stack integrates directly with AWS IoT via a default integration that you deploy in your AWS account via CloudFormation.
You can also configure The Things Stack to connect to your AWS IoT Core endpoint via AWS access keys and role-based access control using custom configuration.
When running The Things Stack in your AWS account, you can publish Application Server telemetry to your IoT Core endpoint.
- You need to have The Things Stack deployed in AWS. See the AWS guide to learn how.
The recommended way to integrate with AWS IoT is by using the Default Integration for The Things Stack. This integration is the most feature rich and supports all deployments of The Things Stack. The Default Integration comes with a AWS CloudFormation template to deploy in your AWS account.
This is a simple integration that only supports publishing uplink messages and requires The Things Stack to run in your AWS account. This is typically only used for AWS Marketplace AMI deployments.
