[ aws . kinesisanalyticsv2 ]



Stops the application from processing data. You can stop an application only if it is in the running status, unless you set the Force parameter to true .

You can use the DescribeApplication operation to find the application status.

Kinesis Data Analytics takes a snapshot when the application is stopped, unless Force is set to true .

--application-name (string)

The name of the running application to stop.

--force | --no-force (boolean)

Set to true to force the application to stop. If you set Force to true , Kinesis Data Analytics stops the application without taking a snapshot.


Force-stopping your application may lead to data loss or duplication. To prevent data loss or duplicate processing of data during application restarts, we recommend you to take frequent snapshots of your application.

You can only force stop a Flink-based Kinesis Data Analytics application. You can’t force stop a SQL-based Kinesis Data Analytics application.

The application must be in the STARTING , UPDATING , STOPPING , AUTOSCALING , or RUNNING status.

--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.
