response = client.list_streams(
        'ComparisonOperator': 'BEGINS_WITH',
        'ComparisonValue': 'string'
  • MaxResults (integer) -- The maximum number of streams to return in the response. The default is 10,000.
  • NextToken (string) -- If you specify this parameter, when the result of a ListStreams operation is truncated, the call returns the NextToken in the response. To get another batch of streams, provide this token in your next request.
  • StreamNameCondition (dict) --

    • ComparisonValue (string) --

      A value to compare.
