describe-stack-events

Description

Returns all stack related events for a specified stack. For more information about a stack's event history, go to Stacks in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.

Note

You can list events for stacks that have failed to create or have been deleted by specifying the unique stack identifier (stack ID).

Synopsis

  describe-stack-events
[--stack-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton]

Options

--stack-name (string)

The name or the unique identifier associated with the stack, which are not always interchangeable:

  • Running stacks: You can specify either the stack's name or its unique stack ID.
  • Deleted stacks: You must specify the unique stack ID.

Default: There is no default value.

--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, it will not clobber their values.

--starting-token (string)

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

--max-items (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 next-token will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

--generate-cli-skeleton (boolean) Prints a sample input JSON to standard output. Note the specified operation is not run if this argument is specified. The sample input can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json.
