Then click button Create stack.

    warning
    • The stack name must be mp-data-feed. Otherwise, Suger service won't recognize.
    • The S3BucketName must be suger-mdfs-s3-bucket-{aws-account-id}. Otherwise, suger service won't have permissions to access.
    • The stack must be running in the AWS region us-east-1, not other regions.
  2. Once the upper Cloud Formation stack is 'CREATE_COMPLETE', find the S3 Bucket ARN (for example: arn:aws:s3:::suger-mdfs-s3-bucket-{aws-account-id}) and the KMS Key ARN (for example: arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:awsAccountId:key/keyId), and input them to the Data Feed Configuration page.
