AWS installation overview

Setting up CDC agents can be an involved process that requires access to the cloud platform and services as well as a degree of familiarity with that platform. We highly recommend using a templated installation.


AWS resources may come with their own costs independent of any billing you receive from Matillion.


  • Create new resources specifically for CDC use rather than attempt to use existing cloud resources.
  • Use the AWS quick guide for a templated installation.
  • Consult your cloud/network administrator for advice on customer private cloud, Subnets and other considerations such as AWS Regions.
  • Keep resources in the same AWS region.

Installation process

It's recommended that you follow the steps in the quick guide for deploying a CDC agent in AWS to create a CDC agent container through Data Loader, and deploy your agent in the AWS console.

When you follow the templated installation above, make sure you only set up the additional resources it requires. For example, the Advanced AWS CloudFormation template will create and configure almost every required resource on the user's behalf, and is the best way to install the Matillion CDC agent.

The Basic Terraform Template is minimal, and requires you to set up many resources. The Advanced Terraform Template method, documented in the above quick guide, takes care of almost the entire installation process, which is why it's recommended you use the quick guide install method.
