Stops the replication task.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--replication-task-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--replication-task-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name(ARN) of the replication task to be stopped.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


ReplicationTask -> (structure)

The replication task stopped.

ReplicationTaskIdentifier -> (string)

The user-assigned replication task identifier or name.


  • Must contain from 1 to 255 alphanumeric characters or hyphens.
  • First character must be a letter.
  • Cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.

SourceEndpointArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) string that uniquely identifies the endpoint.

TargetEndpointArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) string that uniquely identifies the endpoint.

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the replication instance.

MigrationType -> (string)

The type of migration.

TableMappings -> (string)

Table mappings specified in the task.

ReplicationTaskSettings -> (string)

The settings for the replication task.

Status -> (string)

The status of the replication task.

LastFailureMessage -> (string)

The last error (failure) message generated for the replication instance.

StopReason -> (string)

ReplicationTaskCreationDate -> (timestamp)

The date the replication task was created.

ReplicationTaskStartDate -> (timestamp)

The date the replication task is scheduled to start.

CdcStartPosition -> (string)

Indicates when you want a change data capture (CDC) operation to start. Use either CdcStartPosition or CdcStartTime to specify when you want a CDC operation to start. Specifying both values results in an error.

The value can be in date, checkpoint, or LSN/SCN format.

Date Example: --cdc-start-position “2018-03-08T12:12:12”

Checkpoint Example: --cdc-start-position "checkpoint:V1#27#mysql-bin-changelog.157832:1975:-1:2002:677883278264080:mysql-bin-changelog.157832:1876#0#0#*#0#93"

LSN Example: --cdc-start-position “mysql-bin-changelog.000024:373”

CdcStopPosition -> (string)

Indicates when you want a change data capture (CDC) operation to stop. The value can be either server time or commit time.

Server time example: --cdc-stop-position “server_time:3018-02-09T12:12:12”

Commit time example: --cdc-stop-position “commit_time: 3018-02-09T12:12:12 “

RecoveryCheckpoint -> (string)

Indicates the last checkpoint that occurred during a change data capture (CDC) operation. You can provide this value to the CdcStartPosition parameter to start a CDC operation that begins at that checkpoint.

ReplicationTaskArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the replication task.

ReplicationTaskStats -> (structure)

The statistics for the task, including elapsed time, tables loaded, and table errors.

FullLoadProgressPercent -> (integer)

The percent complete for the full load migration task.

ElapsedTimeMillis -> (long)

The elapsed time of the task, in milliseconds.

TablesLoaded -> (integer)

The number of tables loaded for this task.

TablesLoading -> (integer)

The number of tables currently loading for this task.

TablesQueued -> (integer)

The number of tables queued for this task.

TablesErrored -> (integer)
