list-discovered-resources

Description

Accepts a resource type and returns a list of resource identifiers for the resources of that type. A resource identifier includes the resource type, ID, and (if available) the custom resource name. The results consist of resources that AWS Config has discovered, including those that AWS Config is not currently recording. You can narrow the results to include only resources that have specific resource IDs or a resource name.

Note

You can specify either resource IDs or a resource name but not both in the same request.

The response is paginated. By default, AWS Config lists 100 resource identifiers 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.

See also: AWS API Documentation

list-discovered-resources 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: resourceIdentifiers

--resource-ids (list)

The IDs of only those resources that you want AWS Config to list in the response. If you do not specify this parameter, AWS Config lists all resources of the specified type that it has discovered.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--resource-name (string)

The custom name of only those resources that you want AWS Config to list in the response. If you do not specify this parameter, AWS Config lists all resources of the specified type that it has discovered.

--limit (integer)

The maximum number of resource identifiers 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.

--include-deleted-resources | --no-include-deleted-resources (boolean)

Specifies whether AWS Config includes deleted resources in the results. By default, deleted resources are not included.

--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 next-token from a previously truncated response.

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 next-token is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the next-token value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the next-token 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 list resources that AWS Config has discovered

The following command lists the EC2 instances that AWS Config has discovered:

aws configservice list-discovered-resources --resource-type AWS::EC2::Instance

Output:

{
    "resourceIdentifiers": [
        {
            "resourceType": "AWS::EC2::Instance",
            "resourceId": "i-1a2b3c4d"
        },
        {
            "resourceType": "AWS::EC2::Instance",
            "resourceId": "i-2a2b3c4d"
        },
        {
            "resourceType": "AWS::EC2::Instance",
            "resourceId": "i-3a2b3c4d"
        }
    ]
}
