Synopsis

  get-inventory
[--filters <value>]
[--aggregators <value>]
[--result-attributes <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--filters (list)

One or more filters. Use a filter to return a more specific list of results.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Values=string,string,Type=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Values": ["string", ...],
    "Type": "Equal"|"NotEqual"|"BeginWith"|"LessThan"|"GreaterThan"
  }
  ...
]

--aggregators (list)

Returns counts of inventory types based on one or more expressions. For example, if you aggregate by using an expression that uses the AWS:InstanceInformation.PlatformType type, you can see a count of how many Windows and Linux instances exist in your inventoried fleet.

Shorthand Syntax:

Expression=string,Aggregators=[{Expression=string,( ... recursive ... )},{Expression=string,( ... recursive ... )}] ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Expression": "string",
    "Aggregators": [
      {
        "Expression": "string",
        "Aggregators":
      }
      ...
    ]
  }
  ...
]

--result-attributes (list)

The list of inventory item types to return.

Shorthand Syntax:

TypeName=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "TypeName": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--next-token (string)

The token for the next set of items to return. (You received this token from a previous call.)

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of items to return for this call. The call also returns a token that you can specify in a subsequent call 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.
