Synopsis

Invokes the DescribePolicies operation against Auto Scaling.

Syntax

Get-ASPolicy
-AutoScalingGroupName <String>
-PolicyName <String[]>
-PolicyType <String[]>
-MaxRecord <Int32>
-NextToken <String>

Description

Describes the policies for the specified Auto Scaling group.

This operation automatically pages all available results to the pipeline - parameters related to iteration are only needed if you want to manually control the paginated output.

Parameters

-AutoScalingGroupName <String>
The name of the group.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-MaxRecord <Int32>
The maximum number of items to be returned with each call. The default value is 50 and the maximum value is 100.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-NextToken <String>
The token for the next set of items to return. (You received this token from a previous call.)
Note: This parameter is only used if you are manually controlling output pagination of the service API call.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-PolicyName <String[]>
One or more policy names or policy ARNs to be described. If you omit this parameter, all policy names are described. If an group name is provided, the results are limited to that group. This list is limited to 50 items. If you specify an unknown policy name, it is ignored with no error.
Required?False
Position?2
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PolicyType <String[]>
One or more policy types. Valid values are SimpleScaling and StepScaling.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the AutoScalingGroupName parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a collection of ScalingPolicy objects. The service call response (type Amazon.AutoScaling.Model.DescribePoliciesResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack. Additionally, the following properties are added as Note properties to the service response type instance for the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack: NextToken (type System.String)
