  • Resource: aws_kinesis_video_stream
  • Attribute: kms_key_id - (Optional) The ID of the AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) key that you want Kinesis Video Streams to use to encrypt stream data. If no key ID is specified, the default, Kinesis Video-managed key (aws/kinesisvideo) is used.
resource "aws_kinesis_video_stream" "default" {
  name                    = "terraform-kinesis-video-stream"

  device_name             = "kinesis-video-device-name"
