The name of a filter. See the Supported Filters section for a list of supported filter names.

You can specify filters so that the response includes information for only certain volumes. For example, you can use a filter to specify that you're interested in volumes whose status is

You can specify multiple filters (for example, specify that the volume is
available, and has a specific tag. The response includes information for a volume only if it matches all the filters that you specified. If there's no match, no special message is returned, the response is simply empty.

The snapshot from which the volume was created.

tag-key=Purpose" and the filter "
tag-value=X", you get any resources assigned both the tag key
Purpose (regardless of what the tag's value is), and the tag value
X (regardless of what the tag's key is). If you want to list only resources where Purpose is X, see the
For more information about tags, see Tagging Your Resources in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
