See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--stream-name <value>
[--exclusive-start-tag-key <value>]
[--limit <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--stream-name (string)

The name of the stream.

--exclusive-start-tag-key (string)

The key to use as the starting point for the list of tags. If this parameter is set, ListTagsForStream gets all tags that occur after ExclusiveStartTagKey .

--limit (integer)

The number of tags to return. If this number is less than the total number of tags associated with the stream, HasMoreTags is set to true . To list additional tags, set ExclusiveStartTagKey to the last key in the response.

--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.
