Retrieving Object Descriptions

You can view detailed descriptions of any object through the console or through the API.

Detailed Descriptions in the Console

To see descriptions on the console, navigate to a list for a specific type of object (datasource, ML model, evaluation, or batch prediction). Next, locate the row in the table that corresponds to the object, either by browsing through the list or by searching for its name or ID.

Detailed Descriptions from the API

Each object type has an operation that retrieves the full details of an Amazon ML object:

  • GetDataSource

  • GetMLModel

  • GetEvaluation

  • GetBatchPrediction

Each operation takes exactly two parameters: the object ID and a Boolean flag called Verbose. Calls with Verbose set to true will include extra details about the object, resulting in higher latencies and larger responses. To learn which fields are included by setting the Verbose flag, see the Amazon ML API Reference.
