response_iterator = paginator.paginate(
        'MaxItems': 123,
        'PageSize': 123,
        'StartingToken': 'string'
  • ClusterName (string) -- A user-supplied cluster identifier. If this parameter is specified, only snapshots associated with that specific cluster are described.
  • SnapshotName (string) -- A user-supplied name of the snapshot. If this parameter is specified, only this named snapshot is described.
  • Source (string) -- If set to system, the output shows snapshots that were automatically created by MemoryDB. If set to user the output shows snapshots that were manually created. If omitted, the output shows both automatically and manually created snapshots.
  • ShowDetail (boolean) -- A Boolean value which if true, the shard configuration is included in the snapshot description.
  • PaginationConfig (dict) --

    A dictionary that provides parameters to control pagination.

    • MaxItems (integer) --

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) --

      The size of each page.

    • StartingToken (string) --

      A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previous response.
