get-authorizers

Description

Describe an existing Authorizers resource.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

get-authorizers is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: items

Synopsis

  get-authorizers
--rest-api-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--rest-api-id (string)

[Required] The string identifier of the associated RestApi .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To get the list of authorizers for a REST API

Command:

aws apigateway get-authorizers --rest-api-id 1234123412

Output:

{
    "items": [
        {
            "name": "MyAuthorizer",
            "authorizerUri": "arn:aws:apigateway:us-west-2:lambda:path/2015-03-31/functions/arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:123412341234:function:My_Authorizer_Function/invocations",
            "authorizerResultTtlInSeconds": 300,
            "identitySource": "method.request.header.Authorization",
            "type": "TOKEN",
            "id": "gfi4n3"
        }
    ]
}

Output

position -> (string)

items -> (list)

The current page of elements from this collection.

(structure)

Represents an authorization layer for methods. If enabled on a method, API Gateway will activate the authorizer when a client calls the method.

id -> (string)

The identifier for the authorizer resource.

name -> (string)

[Required] The name of the authorizer.

type -> (string)

The authorizer type. Valid values are TOKEN for a Lambda function using a single authorization token submitted in a custom header, REQUEST for a Lambda function using incoming request parameters, and COGNITO_USER_POOLS for using an Amazon Cognito user pool.

providerARNs -> (list)

A list of the Amazon Cognito user pool ARNs for the COGNITO_USER_POOLS authorizer. Each element is of this format: arn:aws:cognito-idp:{region}:{account_id}:userpool/{user_pool_id} . For a TOKEN or REQUEST authorizer, this is not defined.

(string)

authType -> (string)

Optional customer-defined field, used in OpenAPI imports and exports without functional impact.

authorizerUri -> (string)

Specifies the authorizer's Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). For TOKEN or REQUEST authorizers, this must be a well-formed Lambda function URI, for example, arn:aws:apigateway:us-west-2:lambda:path/2015-03-31/functions/arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:{account_id}:function:{lambda_function_name}/invocations . In general, the URI has this form arn:aws:apigateway:{region}:lambda:path/{service_api} , where {region} is the same as the region hosting the Lambda function, path indicates that the remaining substring in the URI should be treated as the path to the resource, including the initial / . For Lambda functions, this is usually of the form /2015-03-31/functions/[FunctionARN]/invocations .

authorizerCredentials -> (string)

Specifies the required credentials as an IAM role for API Gateway to invoke the authorizer. To specify an IAM role for API Gateway to assume, use the role's Amazon Resource Name (ARN). To use resource-based permissions on the Lambda function, specify null.

identitySource -> (string)

The identity source for which authorization is requested.

  • For a TOKEN or COGNITO_USER_POOLS authorizer, this is required and specifies the request header mapping expression for the custom header holding the authorization token submitted by the client. For example, if the token header name is Auth , the header mapping expression is method.request.header.Auth .
  • For the REQUEST authorizer, this is required when authorization caching is enabled. The value is a comma-separated string of one or more mapping expressions of the specified request parameters. For example, if an Auth header, a Name query string parameter are defined as identity sources, this value is method.request.header.Auth, method.request.querystring.Name . These parameters will be used to derive the authorization caching key and to perform runtime validation of the REQUEST authorizer by verifying all of the identity-related request parameters are present, not null and non-empty. Only when this is true does the authorizer invoke the authorizer Lambda function, otherwise, it returns a 401 Unauthorized response without calling the Lambda function. The valid value is a string of comma-separated mapping expressions of the specified request parameters. When the authorization caching is not enabled, this property is optional.

identityValidationExpression -> (string)

A validation expression for the incoming identity token. For TOKEN authorizers, this value is a regular expression. For COGNITO_USER_POOLS authorizers, API Gateway will match the aud field of the incoming token from the client against the specified regular expression. It will invoke the authorizer's Lambda function when there is a match. Otherwise, it will return a 401 Unauthorized response without calling the Lambda function. The validation expression does not apply to the REQUEST authorizer.

authorizerResultTtlInSeconds -> (integer)

The TTL in seconds of cached authorizer results. If it equals 0, authorization caching is disabled. If it is greater than 0, API Gateway will cache authorizer responses. If this field is not set, the default value is 300. The maximum value is 3600, or 1 hour.
