inserting data into timestream table

0

I have generated a timestream database and table, but am struggling to write data to the table. The data comes from an mqtt topic, and can be seen in the cloudwatch log, so I know my select statement is sound. I think i have given the IAM role the correct permissions.

This answer [https://repost.aws/questions/QUmWAjLqG7RwGHCSL2tMrXvw/iot-core-rules-to-map-timestamp-to-timestream#COMoUviJP_TGCAgZvcltBQUw](by @Greg_b) describes how to enter the 'timestamp value' but does not say what is needed in the 'timestamp unit' field. I am a complete newcomer to AWS so apologies if my question is not worded correctly. I would really appreciate some help with this!

One further question, why, after i have deactiveted a rule, does it still appear in the cloudwatch logs?

Hi.

The data comes from an mqtt topic, and can be seen in the cloudwatch log, so I know my select statement is sound. I think i have given the IAM role the correct permissions.

Are you looking in the AWSIotLogsV2 log group? And at the RuleMatch and RuleExecution event types?

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/iot/latest/developerguide/cwl-format.html#rule-engine-logs

If your rule is suffering an error during the rule action, you should see it in the RuleExecution event type.

One further question, why, after i have deactiveted a rule, does it still appear in the cloudwatch logs?

This question makes me think you're not looking at RuleExecution.

time_to_epoch() returns the epoch time in milliseconds.
