StopDeliveryStreamEncryption - Amazon Data Firehose


Disables server-side encryption (SSE) for the delivery stream.

This operation is asynchronous. It returns immediately. When you invoke it, Firehose first sets the encryption status of the stream to DISABLING, and then to DISABLED. You can continue to read and write data to your stream while its status is DISABLING. It can take up to 5 seconds after the encryption status changes to DISABLED before all records written to the delivery stream are no longer subject to encryption. To find out whether a record or a batch of records was encrypted, check the response elements PutRecord:Encrypted and PutRecordBatch:Encrypted, respectively.

To check the encryption state of a delivery stream, use DescribeDeliveryStream.

If SSE is enabled using a customer managed CMK and then you invoke StopDeliveryStreamEncryption, Firehose schedules the related KMS grant for retirement and then retires it after it ensures that it is finished delivering records to the destination.

The StartDeliveryStreamEncryption and StopDeliveryStreamEncryption operations have a combined limit of 25 calls per delivery stream per 24 hours. For example, you reach the limit if you call StartDeliveryStreamEncryption 13 times and StopDeliveryStreamEncryption 12 times for the same delivery stream in a 24-hour period.
