[ aws . appconfig ]

get-configuration

Description

Receive information about a configuration.

Warning

AWS AppConfig uses the value of the ClientConfigurationVersion parameter to identify the configuration version on your clients. If you don’t send ClientConfigurationVersion with each call to GetConfiguration , your clients receive the current configuration. You are charged each time your clients receive a configuration.

To avoid excess charges, we recommend that you include the ClientConfigurationVersion value with every call to GetConfiguration . This value must be saved on your client. Subsequent calls to GetConfiguration must pass this value by using the ClientConfigurationVersion parameter.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
