Amazon DynamoDB
API Reference


Returns an array of stream ARNs associated with the current account and endpoint. If the TableName parameter is present, then ListStreams will return only the streams ARNs for that table.


You can call ListStreams at a maximum rate of 5 times per second.

Request Syntax

{ "ExclusiveStartStreamArn": "string", "Limit": number, "TableName": "string" }

Request Parameters

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.


In the following list, the required parameters are described first.


The ARN (Amazon Resource Name) of the first item that this operation will evaluate. Use the value that was returned for LastEvaluatedStreamArn in the previous operation.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 37. Maximum length of 1024.

Required: No


The maximum number of streams to return. The upper limit is 100.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1.

Required: No


If this parameter is provided, then only the streams associated with this table name are returned.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 3. Maximum length of 255.

Pattern: [a-zA-Z0-9_.-]+

Required: No

Response Syntax

{ "LastEvaluatedStreamArn": "string", "Streams": [ { "StreamArn": "string", "StreamLabel": "string", "TableName": "string" } ] }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.


The stream ARN of the item where the operation stopped, inclusive of the previous result set. Use this value to start a new operation, excluding this value in the new request.

If LastEvaluatedStreamArn is empty, then the "last page" of results has been processed and there is no more data to be retrieved.

If LastEvaluatedStreamArn is not empty, it does not necessarily mean that there is more data in the result set. The only way to know when you have reached the end of the result set is when LastEvaluatedStreamArn is empty.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 37. Maximum length of 1024.


A list of stream descriptors associated with the current account and endpoint.

Type: Array of Stream objects


For information about the errors that are common to all actions, see Common Errors.


An error occurred on the server side.

HTTP Status Code: 500


The operation tried to access a nonexistent stream.

HTTP Status Code: 400
