describe-backups

Description

Describes backups. The results are ordered by time, with newest backups first. If you do not specify a backup-id or ServerName, the command returns all backups.

This operation is synchronous.

A ResourceNotFoundException is thrown when the backup does not exist. A ValidationException is raised when parameters of the request are not valid.

Synopsis

  describe-backups
[--backup-id <value>]
[--server-name <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--backup-id (string)

Describes a single backup.

--server-name (string)

Returns backups for the server with the specified ServerName.

--next-token (string)

next-token is a string that is returned in some command responses. It indicates that not all entries have been returned, and that you must run at least one more request to get remaining items. To get remaining results, call describe-backups again, and assign the token from the previous results as the value of the nextToken parameter. If there are no more results, the response object's nextToken parameter value is null . Setting a nextToken value that was not returned in your previous results causes an InvalidNextTokenException to occur.

--max-results (integer)

To receive a paginated response, use this parameter to specify the maximum number of results to be returned with a single call. If the number of available results exceeds this maximum, the response includes a next-token value that you can assign to the next-token request parameter to get the next set of results.

--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

To describe backups

The following describe-backups command returns information about all backups associated with your account in your default region.:

aws opsworks-cm describe-backups

The output for each backup entry returned by the command resembles the following. Output:
