--assessment-target-arns (list)

A list of ARNs that specifies the assessment targets whose assessment templates you want to list.


"string" "string" ...

--filter (structure)

You can use this parameter to specify a subset of data to be included in the action's response.

For a record to match a filter, all specified filter attributes must match. When multiple values are specified for a filter attribute, any of the values can match.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "namePattern": "string",
  "durationRange": {
    "minSeconds": integer,
    "maxSeconds": integer
  "rulesPackageArns": ["string", ...]

--next-token (string)

You can use this parameter when paginating results. Set the value of this parameter to null on your first call to the list-assessment-templates action. Subsequent calls to the action fill nextToken in the request with the value of NextToken from the previous response to continue listing data.

--max-results (integer)

You can use this parameter to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. The default value is 10. The maximum value is 500.

--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.

nextToken -> (string)

When a response is generated, if there is more data to be listed, this parameter is present in the response and contains the value to use for the nextToken parameter in a subsequent pagination request. If there is no more data to be listed, this parameter is set to null.
