--change-set-name (string)

The name or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the change set that you want to describe.

--stack-name (string)

If you specified the name of a change set, specify the stack name or ID (ARN) of the change set you want to describe.

--next-token (string)

A string (provided by the describe-change-set response output) that identifies the next page of information that you want to retrieve.

--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.

--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.
