Setting up Control-M for AWS Data Pipeline

This procedure describes how to deploy the AWS Data Pipeline plug-in, create a connection profile, and define an AWS Data Pipeline job in Control-M Web and Automation API.

NOTE: Integration plug-ins released by BMC require an Application Integrator installation at your site. However, these plug-ins are not editable and you cannot import them into Application Integrator. To deploy these integrations to your Control-M environment, you import them directly into Control-M using Control-M Automation API.
