KeyId

The GUID for the customer-managed Amazon KMS key to use for encryption. This value can be a globally unique identifier, a fully specified ARN to either an alias or a key, or an alias name prefixed by "alias/".You can also use a master key owned by Kinesis Data Streams by specifying the alias aws/kinesis.

  • Key ARN example: arn:aws:kms:us-east-1:123456789012:key/12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012

  • Alias ARN example: arn:aws:kms:us-east-1:123456789012:alias/MyAliasName

  • Globally unique key ID example: 12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012

  • Alias name example: alias/MyAliasName

  • Master key owned by Kinesis Data Streams: alias/aws/kinesis

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 2048.

StreamCreationTimestamp

The approximate time that the stream was created.

Type: Timestamp

Required: Yes

StreamModeDetails

Specifies the capacity mode to which you want to set your data stream. Currently, in Kinesis Data Streams, you can choose between an on-demand capacity mode and a provisioned capacity mode for your data streams.

StreamStatus

The current status of the stream being described. The stream status is one of the following states:

  • CREATING - The stream is being created. Kinesis Data Streams immediately returns and sets StreamStatus to CREATING.

  • DELETING - The stream is being deleted. The specified stream is in the DELETING state until Kinesis Data Streams completes the deletion.

  • ACTIVE - The stream exists and is ready for read and write operations or deletion. You should perform read and write operations only on an ACTIVE stream.

  • UPDATING - Shards in the stream are being merged or split. Read and write operations continue to work while the stream is in the UPDATING state.
