Synopsis

Calls the AWS Price List Service DescribeServices API operation.

Syntax

Get-PLSService
-ServiceCode <String>
-FormatVersion <String>
-MaxResult <Int32>
-NextToken <String>

Description

Returns the metadata for one service or a list of the metadata for all services. Use this without a service code to get the service codes for all services. Use it with a service code, such as AmazonEC2, to get information specific to that service, such as the attribute names available for that service. For example, some of the attribute names available for EC2 are volumeType, maxIopsVolume, operation, locationType, and instanceCapacity10xlarge.

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

-FormatVersion <String>
The format version that you want the response to be in.Valid values are: aws_v1
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-MaxResult <Int32>
The maximum number of results that you want returned in the response.
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
-NextToken <String>
The pagination token that indicates the next set of results that you want to retrieve.
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
-ServiceCode <String>
The code for the service whose information you want to retrieve, such as AmazonEC2. You can use the ServiceCode to filter the results in a GetProducts call. To retrieve a list of all services, leave this blank.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, )

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 ServiceCode parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a collection of Service objects. The service call response (type Amazon.Pricing.Model.DescribeServicesResponse) 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: FormatVersion (type System.String), NextToken (type System.String)
