Represents the output for PutRecords.



The data blob to put into the record, which is base64-encoded when the blob is serialized. When the data blob (the payload before base64-encoding) is added to the partition key size, the total size must not exceed the maximum record size (1 MiB).

Type: Base64-encoded binary data object

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 1048576.

Required: Yes


The hash value used to determine explicitly the shard that the data record is assigned to by overriding the partition key hash.

Type: String

Pattern: 0|([1-9]\d{0,38})

Required: No


Determines which shard in the stream the data record is assigned to. Partition keys are Unicode strings with a maximum length limit of 256 characters for each key. Amazon Kinesis Data Streams uses the partition key as input to a hash function that maps the partition key and associated data to a specific shard. Specifically, an MD5 hash function is used to map partition keys to 128-bit integer values and to map associated data records to shards. As a result of this hashing mechanism, all data records with the same partition key map to the same shard within the stream.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 256.

Required: Yes
