get-discovered-resource-counts

Description

Returns the resource types, the number of each resource type, and the total number of resources that AWS Config is recording in this region for your AWS account.

Example
  • AWS Config is recording three resource types in the US East (Ohio) Region for your account: 25 EC2 instances, 20 IAM users, and 15 S3 buckets.
  • You make a call to the get-discovered-resource-counts action and specify that you want all resource types.
  • AWS Config returns the following:
    • The resource types (EC2 instances, IAM users, and S3 buckets)
    • The number of each resource type (25, 20, and 15)
    • The total number of all resources (60)

The response is paginated. By default, AWS Config lists 100 ResourceCount objects on each page. You can customize this number with the limit parameter. The response includes a nextToken string. To get the next page of results, run the request again and specify the string for the nextToken parameter.

Note

If you make a call to the get-discovered-resource-counts action, you may not immediately receive resource counts in the following situations:

  • You are a new AWS Config customer
  • You just enabled resource recording

It may take a few minutes for AWS Config to record and count your resources. Wait a few minutes and then retry the get-discovered-resource-counts action.

Synopsis

  get-discovered-resource-counts
[--resource-types <value>]
[--limit <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-types (list)

The comma-separated list that specifies the resource types that you want the AWS Config to return. For example, ("AWS::EC2::Instance" , "AWS::IAM::User" ).

If a value for resourceTypes is not specified, AWS Config returns all resource types that AWS Config is recording in the region for your account.

Note

If the configuration recorder is turned off, AWS Config returns an empty list of ResourceCount objects. If the configuration recorder is not recording a specific resource type (for example, S3 buckets), that resource type is not returned in the list of ResourceCount objects.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--limit (integer)

The maximum number of ResourceCount objects returned on each page. The default is 100. You cannot specify a limit greater than 100. If you specify 0, AWS Config uses the default.

--next-token (string)

The nextToken string returned on a previous page that you use to get the next page of results in a paginated response.

--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.

Output

totalDiscoveredResources -> (long)

The total number of resources that AWS Config is recording in the region for your account. If you specify resource types in the request, AWS Config returns only the total number of resources for those resource types.

Example
  • AWS Config is recording three resource types in the US East (Ohio) Region for your account: 25 EC2 instances, 20 IAM users, and 15 S3 buckets, for a total of 60 resources.
  • You make a call to the get-discovered-resource-counts action and specify the resource type, "AWS::EC2::Instances" in the request.
  • AWS Config returns 25 for totalDiscoveredResources .

resourceCounts -> (list)

The list of ResourceCount objects. Each object is listed in descending order by the number of resources.

(structure)

An object that contains the resource type and the number of resources.

resourceType -> (string)

The resource type, for example "AWS::EC2::Instance" .

count -> (long)

The number of resources.

nextToken -> (string)

The string that you use in a subsequent request to get the next page of results in a paginated response.
