get-records

Description

Retrieves the stream records from a given shard.

Specify a shard iterator using the ShardIterator parameter. The shard iterator specifies the position in the shard from which you want to start reading stream records sequentially. If there are no stream records available in the portion of the shard that the iterator points to, GetRecords returns an empty list. Note that it might take multiple calls to get to a portion of the shard that contains stream records.

Note

GetRecords can retrieve a maximum of 1 MB of data or 1000 stream records, whichever comes first.

Options

--shard-iterator (string)

A shard iterator that was retrieved from a previous GetShardIterator operation. This iterator can be used to access the stream records in this shard.

--limit (integer)

The maximum number of records to return from the shard. The upper limit is 1000.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To get records from a Dynamodb stream

The following get-records command retrieves records using the specified Amazon DynamoDB shard iterator.

Output

Records -> (list)

The stream records from the shard, which were retrieved using the shard iterator.

(structure)

A description of a unique event within a stream.

eventID -> (string)

A globally unique identifier for the event that was recorded in this stream record.

eventName -> (string)

The type of data modification that was performed on the DynamoDB table:

  • INSERT - a new item was added to the table.
  • MODIFY - one or more of an existing item's attributes were modified.
  • REMOVE - the item was deleted from the table

eventVersion -> (string)

The version number of the stream record format. This number is updated whenever the structure of Record is modified.

Client applications must not assume that eventVersion will remain at a particular value, as this number is subject to change at any time. In general, eventVersion will only increase as the low-level DynamoDB Streams API evolves.

eventSource -> (string)

The AWS service from which the stream record originated. For DynamoDB Streams, this is aws:dynamodb .

awsRegion -> (string)

The region in which the GetRecords request was received.

dynamodb -> (structure)

The main body of the stream record, containing all of the DynamoDB-specific fields.

ApproximateCreationDateTime -> (timestamp)

The approximate date and time when the stream record was created, in UNIX epoch time format.

Keys -> (map)

The primary key attribute(s) for the DynamoDB item that was modified.

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

Represents the data for an attribute.

Each attribute value is described as a name-value pair. The name is the data type, and the value is the data itself.

For more information, see Data Types in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide .

S -> (string)

An attribute of type String. For example:

"S": "Hello"

N -> (string)

An attribute of type Number. For example:

"N": "123.45"

Numbers are sent across the network to DynamoDB as strings, to maximize compatibility across languages and libraries. However, DynamoDB treats them as number type attributes for mathematical operations.

B -> (blob)

An attribute of type Binary. For example:

"B": "dGhpcyB0ZXh0IGlzIGJhc2U2NC1lbmNvZGVk"

SS -> (list)

An attribute of type String Set. For example:

"SS": ["Giraffe", "Hippo" ,"Zebra"]

(string)

NS -> (list)

An attribute of type Number Set. For example:

"NS": ["42.2", "-19", "7.5", "3.14"]

Numbers are sent across the network to DynamoDB as strings, to maximize compatibility across languages and libraries. However, DynamoDB treats them as number type attributes for mathematical operations.

(string)

BS -> (list)

An attribute of type Binary Set. For example:

"BS": ["U3Vubnk=", "UmFpbnk=", "U25vd3k="]

(blob)

An attribute of type List. For example:

"L": [ {"S": "Cookies"} , {"S": "Coffee"}, {"N": "3.14159"}]

(structure)

Represents the data for an attribute.

Each attribute value is described as a name-value pair. The name is the data type, and the value is the data itself.

For more information, see Data Types in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide .

S -> (string)

An attribute of type String. For example:

"S": "Hello"

N -> (string)

An attribute of type Number. For example:

"N": "123.45"

Numbers are sent across the network to DynamoDB as strings, to maximize compatibility across languages and libraries. However, DynamoDB treats them as number type attributes for mathematical operations.

"B": "dGhpcyB0ZXh0IGlzIGJhc2U2NC1lbmNvZGVk"

(string)

NS -> (list)

An attribute of type Number Set. For example:

"NS": ["42.2", "-19", "7.5", "3.14"]
