describe-scheduled-actions

Description

Describes the actions scheduled for your Auto Scaling group that haven't run. To describe the actions that have already run, use describe-scaling-activities .

See also: AWS API Documentation

describe-scheduled-actions is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: ScheduledUpdateGroupActions

Synopsis

  describe-scheduled-actions
[--auto-scaling-group-name <value>]
[--scheduled-action-names <value>]
[--start-time <value>]
[--end-time <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--auto-scaling-group-name (string)

The name of the Auto Scaling group.

--scheduled-action-names (list)

Describes one or more scheduled actions. If you omit this parameter, all scheduled actions are described. If you specify an unknown scheduled action, it is ignored with no error.

You can describe up to a maximum of 50 instances with a single call. If there are more items to return, the call returns a token. To get the next set of items, repeat the call with the returned token.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--start-time (timestamp)

The earliest scheduled start time to return. If scheduled action names are provided, this parameter is ignored.

--end-time (timestamp)

The latest scheduled start time to return. If scheduled action names are provided, this parameter is ignored.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--starting-token (string)

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

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Examples

To describe scheduled actions

This example describes all your scheduled actions:

aws autoscaling describe-scheduled-actions

The following is example output:

{
    "ScheduledUpdateGroupActions": [
        {
            "MinSize": 2,
            "DesiredCapacity": 4,
            "AutoScalingGroupName": "my-auto-scaling-group",
            "MaxSize": 6,
            "Recurrence": "30 0 1 12 0",
            "ScheduledActionARN": "arn:aws:autoscaling:us-west-2:123456789012:scheduledUpdateGroupAction:8e86b655-b2e6-4410-8f29-b4f094d6871c:autoScalingGroupName/my-auto-scaling-group:scheduledActionName/my-scheduled-action",
            "ScheduledActionName": "my-scheduled-action",
            "StartTime": "2019-12-01T00:30:00Z",
            "Time": "2019-12-01T00:30:00Z"
        }
    ]
}

To describe the scheduled actions for a specific Auto Scaling group, use the auto-scaling-group-name parameter:

aws autoscaling describe-scheduled-actions --auto-scaling-group-name my-auto-scaling-group

To describe a specific scheduled action, use the scheduled-action-names parameter:

aws autoscaling describe-scheduled-actions --scheduled-action-names my-scheduled-action

To describe the scheduled actions that start at a specific time, use the start-time parameter:

aws autoscaling describe-scheduled-actions --start-time "2019-12-01T00:30:00Z"

To describe the scheduled actions that end at a specific time, use the end-time parameter:

aws autoscaling describe-scheduled-actions --end-time "2022-12-01T00:30:00Z"

To return a specific number of scheduled actions, use the max-items parameter:

aws autoscaling describe-scheduled-actions --auto-scaling-group-name my-auto-scaling-group --max-items 1

The following is example output:

{
    "NextToken": "Z3M3LMPEXAMPLE",
    "ScheduledUpdateGroupActions": [
        {
            "MinSize": 2,
            "DesiredCapacity": 4,
            "AutoScalingGroupName": "my-auto-scaling-group",
            "MaxSize": 6,
            "Recurrence": "30 0 1 12 0",
            "ScheduledActionARN": "arn:aws:autoscaling:us-west-2:123456789012:scheduledUpdateGroupAction:8e86b655-b2e6-4410-8f29-b4f094d6871c:autoScalingGroupName/my-auto-scaling-group:scheduledActionName/my-scheduled-action",
            "ScheduledActionName": "my-scheduled-action",
            "StartTime": "2019-12-01T00:30:00Z",
            "Time": "2019-12-01T00:30:00Z"
        }
    ]
}

Use the NextToken field with the starting-token parameter in a subsequent call to get the additional scheduled actions:

aws autoscaling describe-scheduled-actions --auto-scaling-group-name my-auto-scaling-group --starting-token Z3M3LMPEXAMPLE

For more information, see Scheduled Scaling in the Auto Scaling Developer Guide.
