Why do I see this?

One of your streams has not seen any activity for the past three days.

What does this mean?

If a resource is no longer used, it is good to remove it entirely. If left unaddressed, abandoned resources can be a security threat and leave your system open for exploitation.

AWS Kinesis Data stream is abandoned. How do I fix this?

Check if it’s okay that this stream didn’t have an activity or if something is wrong here. If the stream has been forgotten, you should delete it.
