--connector-profile-name (string)

The name of the connector profile. The name is unique for each ConnectorProfile in the Amazon Web Services account, and is used to query the downstream connector.

--connector-type (string)

The type of connector, such as Salesforce, Amplitude, and so on.

Possible values:

  • Salesforce
  • Singular
  • Slack
  • Redshift
  • S3
  • Marketo
  • Googleanalytics
  • Zendesk
  • Servicenow
  • Datadog

  • Veeva
  • EventBridge
  • LookoutMetrics
  • Upsolver
  • Honeycode
  • CustomerProfiles

  • CustomConnector
  • Pardot

--entities-path (string)

This optional parameter is specific to connector implementation. Some connectors support multiple levels or categories of entities. You can find out the list of roots for such providers by sending a request without the entitiesPath parameter. If the connector supports entities at different roots, this initial request returns the list of roots. Otherwise, this request returns all entities supported by the provider.

--api-version (string)

The version of the API that's used by the connector.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of items that the operation returns in the response.

--next-token (string)

A token that was provided by your prior ListConnectorEntities operation if the response was too big for the page size. You specify this token to get the next page of results in paginated response.

--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.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.


connectorEntityMap -> (map)

The response of ListConnectorEntities lists entities grouped by category. This map's key represents the group name, and its value contains the list of entities belonging to that group.

key -> (string)

value -> (list)


The high-level entity that can be queried in Amazon AppFlow. For example, a Salesforce entity might be an Account or Opportunity , whereas a ServiceNow entity might be an Incident .

name -> (string)

The name of the connector entity.

label -> (string)

The label applied to the connector entity.

hasNestedEntities -> (boolean)

Specifies whether the connector entity is a parent or a category and has more entities nested underneath it. If another call is made with entitiesPath = "the_current_entity_name_with_hasNestedEntities_true" , then it returns the nested entities underneath it. This provides a way to retrieve all supported entities in a recursive fashion.

nextToken -> (string)

A token that you specify in your next ListConnectorEntities operation to get the next page of results in paginated response. The ListConnectorEntities operation provides this token if the response is too big for the page size.
