[ aws . rds ]



Stops a database activity stream that was started using the Amazon Web Services console, the start-activity-stream CLI command, or the StartActivityStream action.

For more information, see Database Activity Streams in the Amazon Aurora User Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--resource-arn <value>
[--apply-immediately | --no-apply-immediately]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--resource-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the DB cluster for the database activity stream. For example, arn:aws:rds:us-east-1:12345667890:cluster:das-cluster .

--apply-immediately | --no-apply-immediately (boolean)

Specifies whether or not the database activity stream is to stop as soon as possible, regardless of the maintenance window for the database.

--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.



To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To stop a database activity stream

The following stop-activity-stream example stops an activity stream in an Aurora cluster named my-pg-cluster.

aws rds stop-activity-stream \
    --region us-east-1 \
    --resource-arn arn:aws:rds:us-east-1:1234567890123:cluster:my-pg-cluster \


    "KmsKeyId": "arn:aws:kms:us-east-1:1234567890123:key/a12c345d-6ef7-890g-h123-456i789jk0l1",
    "KinesisStreamName": "aws-rds-das-cluster-0ABCDEFGHI1JKLM2NOPQ3R4S",
    "Status": "stopping"

For more information, see Stopping an activity stream in the Amazon Aurora User Guide.


KmsKeyId -> (string)
