[ aws . kinesis ]



Deletes a Kinesis data stream and all its shards and data. You must shut down any applications that are operating on the stream before you delete the stream. If an application attempts to operate on a deleted stream, it receives the exception ResourceNotFoundException .

If the stream is in the ACTIVE state, you can delete it. After a DeleteStream request, the specified stream is in the DELETING state until Kinesis Data Streams completes the deletion.

Note: Kinesis Data Streams might continue to accept data read and write operations, such as PutRecord , PutRecords , and GetRecords , on a stream in the DELETING state until the stream deletion is complete.

When you delete a stream, any shards in that stream are also deleted, and any tags are dissociated from the stream.

You can use the DescribeStream operation to check the state of the stream, which is returned in StreamStatus .

DeleteStream has a limit of five transactions per second per account.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--stream-name <value>
[--enforce-consumer-deletion | --no-enforce-consumer-deletion]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--stream-name (string)

The name of the stream to delete.

--enforce-consumer-deletion | --no-enforce-consumer-deletion (boolean)

If this parameter is unset (null ) or if you set it to false , and the stream has registered consumers, the call to DeleteStream fails with a ResourceInUseException .

--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.

--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.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.
