Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Kinesis ListShards API operation.

Syntax

Get-KINShardList
-StreamName <String>
-ExclusiveStartShardId <String>
-StreamCreationTimestamp <DateTime>
-MaxResult <Int32>
-NextToken <String>

Description

Lists the shards in a stream and provides information about each shard. This API is a new operation that is used by the Amazon Kinesis Client Library (KCL). If you have a fine-grained IAM policy that only allows specific operations, you must update your policy to allow calls to this API. For more information, see Controlling Access to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams Resources Using IAM.

Parameters

-ExclusiveStartShardId <String>
The ID of the shard to start the list with. If you don't specify this parameter, the default behavior is for ListShards to list the shards starting with the first one in the stream.You cannot specify this parameter if you specify NextToken.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-MaxResult <Int32>
The maximum number of shards to return in a single call to ListShards. The minimum value you can specify for this parameter is 1, and the maximum is 1,000, which is also the default.When the number of shards to be listed is greater than the value of MaxResults, the response contains a NextToken value that you can use in a subsequent call to ListShards to list the next set of shards.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-NextToken <String>
When the number of shards in the data stream is greater than the default value for the MaxResults parameter, or if you explicitly specify a value for MaxResults that is less than the number of shards in the data stream, the response includes a pagination token named NextToken. You can specify this NextToken value in a subsequent call to ListShards to list the next set of shards.Don't specify StreamName or StreamCreationTimestamp if you specify NextToken because the latter unambiguously identifies the stream.You can optionally specify a value for the MaxResults parameter when you specify NextToken. If you specify a MaxResults value that is less than the number of shards that the operation returns if you don't specify MaxResults, the response will contain a new NextToken value. You can use the new NextToken value in a subsequent call to the ListShards operation.Tokens expire after 300 seconds. When you obtain a value for NextToken in the response to a call to ListShards, you have 300 seconds to use that value. If you specify an expired token in a call to ListShards, you get ExpiredNextTokenException.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-StreamCreationTimestamp <DateTime>
Specify this input parameter to distinguish data streams that have the same name. For example, if you create a data stream and then delete it, and you later create another data stream with the same name, you can use this input parameter to specify which of the two streams you want to list the shards for.You cannot specify this parameter if you specify the NextToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-StreamName <String>
The name of the data stream whose shards you want to list. You cannot specify this parameter if you specify the NextToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, )

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the StreamName parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a collection of Shard objects. The service call response (type Amazon.Kinesis.Model.ListShardsResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack. Additionally, the following properties are added as Note properties to the service response type instance for the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack: NextToken (type System.String)
