Disables server-side encryption for a specified stream.

Stopping encryption is an asynchronous operation. Upon receiving the request, Kinesis Data Streams returns immediately and sets the status of the stream to UPDATING. After the update is complete, Kinesis Data Streams sets the status of the stream back to ACTIVE. Stopping encryption normally takes a few seconds to complete, but it can take minutes. You can continue to read and write data to your stream while its status is UPDATING. Once the status of the stream is ACTIVE, records written to the stream are no longer encrypted by Kinesis Data Streams.

API Limits: You can successfully disable server-side encryption 25 times in a rolling 24-hour period.

Note: It can take up to five seconds after the stream is in an ACTIVE status before all records written to the stream are no longer subject to encryption. After you disabled encryption, you can verify that encryption is not applied by inspecting the API response from PutRecord or PutRecords.


For .NET Core, PCL and Unity this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to StopStreamEncryptionAsync.
