[ aws . firehose ]



Lists your delivery streams in alphabetical order of their names.

The number of delivery streams might be too large to return using a single call to ListDeliveryStreams . You can limit the number of delivery streams returned, using the Limit parameter. To determine whether there are more delivery streams to list, check the value of HasMoreDeliveryStreams in the output. If there are more delivery streams to list, you can request them by calling this operation again and setting the ExclusiveStartDeliveryStreamName parameter to the name of the last delivery stream returned in the last call.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--limit (integer)

The maximum number of delivery streams to list. The default value is 10.

--delivery-stream-type (string)

The delivery stream type. This can be one of the following values:

  • DirectPut : Provider applications access the delivery stream directly.
  • KinesisStreamAsSource : The delivery stream uses a Kinesis data stream as a source.

This parameter is optional. If this parameter is omitted, delivery streams of all types are returned.

Possible values:

  • DirectPut
  • KinesisStreamAsSource

--exclusive-start-delivery-stream-name (string)

The list of delivery streams returned by this call to ListDeliveryStreams will start with the delivery stream whose name comes alphabetically immediately after the name you specify in ExclusiveStartDeliveryStreamName .

--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.
