One or more filters. Filter names and values are case-sensitive.

  • allocation-id - [EC2-VPC] The allocation ID for the address.
  • association-id - [EC2-VPC] The association ID for the address.
  • domain - Indicates whether the address is for use in EC2-Classic (standard ) or in a VPC (vpc ).
  • instance-id - The ID of the instance the address is associated with, if any.
  • network-interface-id - [EC2-VPC] The ID of the network interface that the address is associated with, if any.

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Name": "string",
    "Values": ["string", ...]

--public-ips (list)

[EC2-Classic] One or more Elastic IP addresses.

Default: Describes all your Elastic IP addresses.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--allocation-ids (list)

[EC2-VPC] One or more allocation IDs.

Default: Describes all your Elastic IP addresses.

Syntax:

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--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.
