--instance-id <value>
--type-name <value>
[--filters <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--instance-id (string)

The instance ID for which you want inventory information.

--type-name (string)

The type of inventory item for which you want information.

--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"

--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.
