[ aws . workdocs ]



Retrieves the path information (the hierarchy from the root folder) for the requested document.

By default, Amazon WorkDocs returns a maximum of 100 levels upwards from the requested document and only includes the IDs of the parent folders in the path. You can limit the maximum number of levels. You can also request the names of the parent folders.

--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.
