Synopsis

Invokes the GetResources operation against AWS Resource Groups Tagging API.

Syntax

Get-RGTResource
-ResourceTypeFilter <String[]>
-ResourcesPerPage <Int32>
-TagFilter <TagFilter[]>
-TagsPerPage <Int32>
-PaginationToken <String>

Description

Returns all the tagged resources that are associated with the specified tags (keys and values) located in the specified region for the AWS account. The tags and the resource types that you specify in the request are known as filters. The response includes all tags that are associated with the requested resources. If no filter is provided, this action returns a paginated resource list with the associated tags.

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

-PaginationToken <String>
A string that indicates that additional data is available. Leave this value empty for your initial request. If the response includes a PaginationToken, use that string for this value to request an additional page of data.
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
-ResourcesPerPage <Int32>
A limit that restricts the number of resources returned by GetResources in paginated output. You can set ResourcesPerPage to a minimum of 1 item and the maximum of 50 items.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-ResourceTypeFilter <String[]>
The constraints on the resources that you want returned. The format of each resource type is service[:resourceType]. For example, specifying a resource type of ec2 returns all tagged Amazon EC2 resources (which includes tagged EC2 instances). Specifying a resource type of ec2:instance returns only EC2 instances. The string for each service name and resource type is the same as that embedded in a resource's Amazon Resource Name (ARN). Consult the AWS General Reference for the following:
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, )
-TagFilter <TagFilter[]>
A list of tags (keys and values). A request can include up to 50 keys, and each key can include up to 20 values.If you specify multiple filters connected by an AND operator in a single request, the response returns only those resources that are associated with every specified filter.If you specify multiple filters connected by an OR operator in a single request, the response returns all resources that are associated with at least one or possibly more of the specified filters.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-TagsPerPage <Int32>
A limit that restricts the number of tags (key and value pairs) returned by GetResources in paginated output. A resource with no tags is counted as having one tag (one key and value pair).GetResources does not split a resource and its associated tags across pages. If the specified TagsPerPage would cause such a break, a PaginationToken is returned in place of the affected resource and its tags. Use that token in another request to get the remaining data. For example, if you specify a TagsPerPage of 100 and the account has 22 resources with 10 tags each (meaning that each resource has 10 key and value pairs), the output will consist of 3 pages, with the first page displaying the first 10 resources, each with its 10 tags, the second page displaying the next 10 resources each with its 10 tags, and the third page displaying the remaining 2 resources, each with its 10 tags.You can set TagsPerPage to a minimum of 100 items and the maximum of 500 items.
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 ResourceTypeFilter parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a collection of ResourceTagMapping objects. The service call response (type Amazon.ResourceGroupsTaggingAPI.Model.GetResourcesResponse) 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: PaginationToken (type System.String)

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Get-RGTResource
ResourceARN Tags
----------- ----
arn:aws:dynamodb:us-west-2:123456789012:table/mytable {stage, version}
arn:aws:s3:::mybucket {stage, version, othertag}
Returns all the tagged resources in a region and the tag keys associated with the resource. If no -Region parameter is supplied to the cmdlet it will attempt to infer region from the shell or EC2 instance metadata.

Example 2

PS C:\> Get-RGTResource -ResourceType "s3"
ResourceARN Tags
----------- ----
arn:aws:s3:::mybucket {stage, version, othertag}
Returns all the tagged resources of the specified type in a region. The string for each service name and resource type is the same as that embedded in a resource's Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

Example 3

PS C:\> "dynamodb","s3" | Get-RGTResource
ResourceARN Tags
----------- ----
arn:aws:dynamodb:us-west-2:123456789012:table/mytable {stage, version}
arn:aws:s3:::mybucket {stage, version, othertag}
Returns all the tagged resources of the specified type in a region. Note that when the resource types are piped into the cmdlet, one call to the service is made for each supplied resource type.

Example 4

PS C:\> Get-RGTResource -TagFilter @{ Key="stage" }
ResourceARN Tags
----------- ----
arn:aws:s3:::mybucket {stage, version, othertag}
Returns all the tagged resources that match the specified filter.
