Importing Pinpoint activity into Lytics requires setting up an export of Pinpoint Events to Kinesis. See Amazon's documentation for more information, and follow these instructions to set it up via the Pinpoint UI.
This integration uses the Amazon Kinesis Data Streams Service APIs to get Pinpoint activity records from the Kinesis stream in near real-time. You can then start the Pinpoint import job in Lytics.
- Once the import is started, the Pinpoint events will be continuously read off the Kinesis stream into Lytics in near real-time. Data is pulled from Kinesis via the GetRcords endpoint.
- The activity data will be ingested into the Lytics data stream
