public class StreamDescription

The StreamDescription type exposes the following members


Public Method StreamDescription()


Public Property CreationRequestDateTime System.DateTime

Gets and sets the property CreationRequestDateTime.

The date and time when the request to create this stream was issued.

Public Property KeySchema System.Collections.Generic.List<Amazon.DynamoDBv2.Model.KeySchemaElement>

Gets and sets the property KeySchema.

The key attribute(s) of the stream's DynamoDB table.

Public Property LastEvaluatedShardId System.String

Gets and sets the property LastEvaluatedShardId.

The shard ID of the item where the operation stopped, inclusive of the previous result set. Use this value to start a new operation, excluding this value in the new request.

If LastEvaluatedShardId is empty, then the "last page" of results has been processed and there is currently no more data to be retrieved.

If LastEvaluatedShardId is not empty, it does not necessarily mean that there is more data in the result set. The only way to know when you have reached the end of the result set is when LastEvaluatedShardId is empty.

Public Property Shards System.Collections.Generic.List<Amazon.DynamoDBv2.Model.Shard>

Gets and sets the property Shards.

The shards that comprise the stream.

Public Property StreamArn System.String

Gets and sets the property StreamArn.

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the stream.

Public Property StreamLabel System.String

Gets and sets the property StreamLabel.

A timestamp, in ISO 8601 format, for this stream.

Note that LatestStreamLabel is not a unique identifier for the stream, because it is possible that a stream from another table might have the same timestamp. However, the combination of the following three elements is guaranteed to be unique:

  • the AWS customer ID.

  • the table name

  • the StreamLabel

Public Property StreamStatus Amazon.DynamoDBv2.StreamStatus

Gets and sets the property StreamStatus.

Indicates the current status of the stream:

  • ENABLING - Streams is currently being enabled on the DynamoDB table.

Public Property StreamViewType Amazon.DynamoDBv2.StreamViewType

  • KEYS_ONLY - only the key attributes of items that were modified in the DynamoDB table.

  • NEW_IMAGE - entire items from the table, as they appeared after they were modified.

  • OLD_IMAGE - entire items from the table, as they appeared before they were modified.

  • NEW_AND_OLD_IMAGES - both the new and the old images of the items from the table.

Public Property TableName System.String
