The Amazon EC2 Adapter is an adapter that is installed into Kinetic Bridgehub that allows data from Amazon EC2 to be pulled back using bridging. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides secure, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Note: Check to ensure that this adapter isn't already installed into your bridgehub as part of the base installation before undertaking the installation tasks.

The Amazon EC2 Adapter uses Amazon's EC2 REST API to retrieve data and because of this the query structure for the adapter is loosely defined by this query structure. The EC2 API documentation can be found here.
All of the 'Describe' Actions in the EC2 API are available as Structures without the Describe appended to the front.
If the fields parameter is left blank in a bridge call, all possible fields for the structure will be returned with the result.
Any request parameters available in the corresponding 'Describe' action should be available to be included in the query as is.
Using the InstanceId.N request parameter, the following is a valid Instance query:
Using the **Filter.N **request parameter, the following is a valid Instance query to search by availability zone:
Any Filter query parameters can also be searched just by simple filterName=filterValue syntax in the bridge query (instead of using Amazon's full Filter.N.Name=filterName&Filter.N.Value.filterValue)
For example, the availabiltyZone filter example above could be re-written as:
This adapter does not currently support pagination.
This adapter does not currently support ordering records.
