Amazon Route 53
Developer Guide (API Version 2013-04-01)

Listing Records

The following procedure explains how to use the Amazon Route 53 console to list the records in a hosted zone. For information about how to list records using the Route 53 API, see ListResourceRecordSets in the Amazon Route 53 API Reference.

To list records

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Route 53 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53/.

  2. On the Hosted Zones page, double-click the name of a hosted zone to see its Record Sets page.

    To display only selected records, enter the applicable search criteria above the list of records. Search behavior depends on whether the hosted zone contains up to 2,000 records or more than 2,000 records:

    Up to 2,000 records
    • To display the records that have specific values in either the Name or Value field, enter a value in the Search field and press Enter. For example, to display the records that have an IP address beginning with 192.0, enter that value in the Search field and press Enter.

    • To display only the records that have the same DNS record type, select the type in the dropdown list.

    • To display only alias records, select the Aliases Only check box.

    • To display only weighted records, select the Weighted Only check box.

    More than 2,000 records
    • You can search only on record names, not on record values. You also can't filter based on the record type, or on alias or weighted records.

    • For records that have three labels (three parts separated by dots), when you enter a value in the search field and press Enter, the Route 53 console automatically performs a wildcard search on the third label from the right in the record name. For example, suppose the hosted zone example.com contains 100 records named record1.example.com through record100.example.com. (Record1 is the third label from the right.) Here's what happens when you search on the following values:

      • record1 – The Route 53 console searches for record1*.example.com, which returns record1.example.com, record10.example.com through record19.example.com, and record100.example.com.

      • record1.example.com – As in the preceding example, the console searches for record1*.example.com and returns the same records.

      • 1 – The console searches for 1*.example.com and returns no records.

      • example – The console searches for example*.example.com and returns no records.

      • example.com – In this example, the console doesn't perform a wildcard search. It returns all the records in the hosted zone.

    • For records that have four or more labels, you must specify the exact name of the record. No wildcard searches are supported. For example, if the hosted zone includes a record named label4.record1.example.com, you can find that record only if you specify label4.record1.example.com in the search field.
