[ aws . qldb ]



Ends a given Amazon QLDB journal stream. Before a stream can be canceled, its current status must be ACTIVE .

You can’t restart a stream after you cancel it. Canceled QLDB stream resources are subject to a 7-day retention period, so they are automatically deleted after this limit expires.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--ledger-name <value>
--stream-id <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--ledger-name (string)

The name of the ledger.

--stream-id (string)

The UUID (represented in Base62-encoded text) of the QLDB journal stream to be canceled.

--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.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .
