Synopsis

Invokes the DescribeStackResources operation against AWS CloudFormation.

Syntax

Get-CFNStackResourceList
-StackName <String>
-LogicalResourceId <String>
-PhysicalResourceId <String>

Description

Returns AWS resource descriptions for running and deleted stacks. If StackName is specified, all the associated resources that are part of the stack are returned. If PhysicalResourceId is specified, the associated resources of the stack that the resource belongs to are returned. Only the first 100 resources will be returned. If your stack has more resources than this, you should use ListStackResources instead. For deleted stacks, DescribeStackResources returns resource information for up to 90 days after the stack has been deleted. You must specify either StackName or PhysicalResourceId, but not both. In addition, you can specify LogicalResourceId to filter the returned result. For more information about resources, the LogicalResourceId and PhysicalResourceId, go to the AWS CloudFormation User Guide. A ValidationError is returned if you specify both StackName and PhysicalResourceId in the same request.

Note: For scripts written against earlier versions of this module this cmdlet can also be invoked with the alias, Get-CFNStackResources.

Parameters

-LogicalResourceId <String>
The logical name of the resource as specified in the template.Default: There is no default value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PhysicalResourceId <String>
The name or unique identifier that corresponds to a physical instance ID of a resource supported by AWS CloudFormation.For example, for an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance, PhysicalResourceId corresponds to the InstanceId. You can pass the EC2 InstanceId to DescribeStackResources to find which stack the instance belongs to and what other resources are part of the stack.Required: Conditional. If you do not specify PhysicalResourceId, you must specify StackName.Default: There is no default value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-StackName <String>
The name or the unique stack ID that is associated with the stack, which are not always interchangeable:
  • Running stacks: You can specify either the stack's name or its unique stack ID.
  • Deleted stacks: You must specify the unique stack ID.
Default: There is no default value.Required: Conditional. If you do not specify StackName, you must specify PhysicalResourceId.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)

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 StackName parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a collection of StackResource objects. The service call response (type Amazon.CloudFormation.Model.DescribeStackResourcesResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\>Get-CFNStackResourceList -StackName "myStack"
Returns the AWS resource descriptions for up to 100 resources associated with the specified stack. To obtain details of all resources associated with a stack use the Get-CFNStackResourceSummary, which also supports manual paging of the results.

Example 2

PS C:\>Get-CFNStackResourceList -StackName "myStack" -LogicalResourceId "Ec2Instance"
Returns the description of the Amazon EC2 instance identified in the template associated with the specified stack by the logical ID "Ec2Instance".

Example 3

PS C:\>Get-CFNStackResourceList PhysicalResourceId "i-123456"
Returns the description of up to 100 resources associated with the stack containing an Amazon EC2 instance identified by instance ID "i-123456". To obtain details of all resources associated with a stack use the Get-CFNStackResourceSummary, which also supports manual paging of the results.

Example 4

PS C:\>Get-CFNStackResourceList PhysicalResourceId "i-123456" -LogicalResourceId "Ec2Instance"
Returns the description of the Amazon EC2 instance identified by the logical ID "Ec2Instance" in the template for a stack. The stack is identified using the physical resource ID of a resource it contains, in this case also an Amazon EC2 instance with instance ID "i-123456". A different physical resource could also be used to identify the stack depending on the template content, for example an Amazon S3 bucket.
