[ aws . events ]



Starts the specified replay. Events are not necessarily replayed in the exact same order that they were added to the archive. A replay processes events to replay based on the time in the event, and replays them using 1 minute intervals. If you specify an EventStartTime and an EventEndTime that covers a 20 minute time range, the events are replayed from the first minute of that 20 minute range first. Then the events from the second minute are replayed. You can use DescribeReplay to determine the progress of a replay. The value returned for EventLastReplayedTime indicates the time within the specified time range associated with the last event replayed.

--replay-name (string)

The name of the replay to start.

--description (string)

A description for the replay to start.

--event-source-arn (string)

The ARN of the archive to replay events from.

--event-start-time (timestamp)

A time stamp for the time to start replaying events. Only events that occurred between the EventStartTime and EventEndTime are replayed.

--event-end-time (timestamp)

A time stamp for the time to stop replaying events. Only events that occurred between the EventStartTime and EventEndTime are replayed.

--destination (structure)

A ReplayDestination object that includes details about the destination for the replay.

Arn -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "Arn": "string",
  "FilterArns": ["string", ...]

--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.


ReplayArn -> (string)

The ARN of the replay.

State -> (string)

The state of the replay.

StateReason -> (string)

The reason that the replay is in the state.

ReplayStartTime -> (timestamp)

The time at which the replay started.
