BatchGetDocumentStatus - Amazon Kendra API Reference


Returns the indexing status for one or more documents submitted with the BatchPutDocument API.

When you use the BatchPutDocument API, documents are indexed asynchronously. You can use the BatchGetDocumentStatus API to get the current status of a list of documents so that you can determine if they have been successfully indexed.

You can also use the BatchGetDocumentStatus API to check the status of the BatchDeleteDocument API. When a document is deleted from the index, Amazon Kendra returns NOT_FOUND as the status.
