Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose
API Reference (API Version 2015-08-04)
AWS services or capabilities described in AWS documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with AWS services in China.

DescribeDeliveryStream

Describes the specified delivery stream and its status. For example, after your delivery stream is created, call DescribeDeliveryStream to see whether the delivery stream is ACTIVE and therefore ready for data to be sent to it.

If the status of a delivery stream is CREATING_FAILED, this status doesn't change, and you can't invoke CreateDeliveryStream again on it. However, you can invoke the DeleteDeliveryStream operation to delete it. If the status is DELETING_FAILED, you can force deletion by invoking DeleteDeliveryStream again but with DeleteDeliveryStream:AllowForceDelete set to true.

Request Syntax
