[ aws . kinesisvideo ]



Returns an array of StreamInfo objects. Each object describes a stream. To retrieve only streams that satisfy a specific condition, you can specify a StreamNameCondition .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

list-streams is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: StreamInfoList


[--stream-name-condition <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--stream-name-condition (structure)

Optional: Returns only streams that satisfy a specific condition. Currently, you can specify only the prefix of a stream name as a condition.

ComparisonOperator -> (string)

A comparison operator. Currently, you can specify only the BEGINS_WITH operator, which finds streams whose names start with a given prefix.

ComparisonValue -> (string)

A value to compare.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "ComparisonOperator": "BEGINS_WITH",
  "ComparisonValue": "string"

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command’s output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command’s output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command’s output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


StreamInfoList -> (list)

An array of StreamInfo objects.


An object describing a Kinesis video stream.

DeviceName -> (string)

The name of the device that is associated with the stream.

StreamName -> (string)

The name of the stream.

StreamARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the stream.

MediaType -> (string)

The MediaType of the stream.

KmsKeyId -> (string)

The ID of the AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) key that Kinesis Video Streams uses to encrypt data on the stream.

Version -> (string)

The version of the stream.

Status -> (string)

The status of the stream.

CreationTime -> (timestamp)

A time stamp that indicates when the stream was created.

DataRetentionInHours -> (integer)

How long the stream retains data, in hours.

NextToken -> (string)

If the response is truncated, the call returns this element with a token. To get the next batch of streams, use this token in your next request.
