[ aws . firehose ]



Deletes a delivery stream and its data.

To check the state of a delivery stream, use DescribeDeliveryStream . You can delete a delivery stream only if it is in one of the following states: ACTIVE , DELETING , CREATING_FAILED , or DELETING_FAILED . You can't delete a delivery stream that is in the CREATING state. While the deletion request is in process, the delivery stream is in the DELETING state.

While the delivery stream is in the DELETING state, the service might continue to accept records, but it doesn't make any guarantees with respect to delivering the data. Therefore, as a best practice, first stop any applications that are sending records before you delete a delivery stream.

--delivery-stream-name <value>
[--allow-force-delete | --no-allow-force-delete]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--delivery-stream-name (string)

The name of the delivery stream.

--allow-force-delete | --no-allow-force-delete (boolean)

Set this to true if you want to delete the delivery stream even if Kinesis Data Firehose is unable to retire the grant for the CMK. Kinesis Data Firehose might be unable to retire the grant due to a customer error, such as when the CMK or the grant are in an invalid state. If you force deletion, you can then use the RevokeGrant operation to revoke the grant you gave to Kinesis Data Firehose. If a failure to retire the grant happens due to an AWS KMS issue, Kinesis Data Firehose keeps retrying the delete operation.

The default value is false.

--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.
