describe-mesh

Description

Describes an existing service mesh.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-mesh
--mesh-name <value>
[--mesh-owner <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--mesh-name (string)

The name of the service mesh to describe.

--mesh-owner (string)

The AWS IAM account ID of the service mesh owner. If the account ID is not your own, then it's the ID of the account that shared the mesh with your account. For more information about mesh sharing, see Working with shared meshes .

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
