Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Kinesis Analytics StartApplication API operation.

Syntax

Start-KINAApplication
-ApplicationName <String>
-InputConfiguration <InputConfiguration[]>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Starts the specified Amazon Kinesis Analytics application. After creating an application, you must exclusively call this operation to start your application. After the application starts, it begins consuming the input data, processes it, and writes the output to the configured destination. The application status must be READY for you to start an application. You can get the application status in the console or using the DescribeApplication operation. After you start the application, you can stop the application from processing the input by calling the StopApplication operation. This operation requires permissions to perform the kinesisanalytics:StartApplication action.

Parameters

-ApplicationName <String>
Name of the application.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-Force <SwitchParameter>
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-InputConfiguration <InputConfiguration[]>
Identifies the specific input, by ID, that the application starts consuming. Amazon Kinesis Analytics starts reading the streaming source associated with the input. You can also specify where in the streaming source you want Amazon Kinesis Analytics to start reading.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Returns the value passed to the ApplicationName parameter. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the ApplicationName parameter.

Outputs

None or System.String
When you use the PassThru parameter, this cmdlet outputs the value supplied to the ApplicationName parameter. Otherwise, this cmdlet does not return any output. The service response (type Amazon.KinesisAnalytics.Model.StartApplicationResponse) can be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
