describe-agents

Description

Lists agents or the Connector by ID or lists all agents/Connectors associated with your user account if you did not specify an ID.

See also: AWS API Documentation

Synopsis

  describe-agents
[--agent-ids <value>]
[--filters <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--agent-ids (list)

The agent or the Connector IDs for which you want information. If you specify no IDs, the system returns information about all agents/Connectors associated with your AWS user account.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--filters (list)

You can filter the request using various logical operators and a key -value format. For example:

{"key": "collectionStatus", "value": "STARTED"}

Shorthand Syntax:

name=string,values=string,string,condition=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "name": "string",
    "values": ["string", ...],
    "condition": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--max-results (integer)

The total number of agents/Connectors to return in a single page of output. The maximum value is 100.

--next-token (string)

Token to retrieve the next set of results. For example, if you previously specified 100 IDs for DescribeAgentsRequest$agentIds but set DescribeAgentsRequest$maxResults to 10, you received a set of 10 results along with a token. Use that token in this query to get the next set of 10.

--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.

Examples

Describe agents with specified collectionStatus states

This example command describes collection agents with collection status of "STARTED" or "STOPPED".

Command:

aws discovery describe-agents --filters name="collectionStatus",values="STARTED","STOPPED",condition="EQUALS" --max-results 3

Output:
