Synopsis

  describe-scheduled-instances
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
[--filters <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--scheduled-instance-ids <value>]
[--slot-start-time-range <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--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 .

--filters (list)

One or more filters.

  • availability-zone - The Availability Zone (for example, us-west-2a ).
  • instance-type - The instance type (for example, c4.large ).
  • network-platform - The network platform (EC2-Classic or EC2-VPC ).
  • platform - The platform (Linux/UNIX or Windows ).

Shorthand Syntax:

Name=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

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

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results to return in a single call. This value can be between 5 and 300. The default value is 100. To retrieve the remaining results, make another call with the returned NextToken value.

--next-token (string)

The token for the next set of results.

--scheduled-instance-ids (list)

One or more Scheduled Instance IDs.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--slot-start-time-range (structure)

The time period for the first schedule to start.

Shorthand Syntax:

EarliestTime=timestamp,LatestTime=timestamp

JSON Syntax:

{
  "EarliestTime": timestamp,
  "LatestTime": timestamp
}

--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.
