[ aws . backup ]

describe-backup-job

Description

Returns metadata associated with creating a backup of a resource.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-backup-job
--backup-job-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--backup-job-id (string)

Uniquely identifies a request to AWS Backup to back up a resource.

--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.

Output

BackupJobId -> (string)

Uniquely identifies a request to AWS Backup to back up a resource.

BackupVaultName -> (string)

The name of a logical container where backups are stored. Backup vaults are identified by names that are unique to the account used to create them and the AWS Region where they are created. They consist of lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens.

BackupVaultArn -> (string)

An Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that uniquely identifies a backup vault; for example, arn:aws:backup:us-east-1:123456789012:vault:aBackupVault .

RecoveryPointArn -> (string)

An ARN that uniquely identifies a recovery point; for example, arn:aws:backup:us-east-1:123456789012:recovery-point:1EB3B5E7-9EB0-435A-A80B-108B488B0D45 .

ResourceArn -> (string)

An ARN that uniquely identifies a saved resource. The format of the ARN depends on the resource type.

CreationDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time that a backup job is created, in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The value of CreationDate is accurate to milliseconds. For example, the value 1516925490.087 represents Friday, January 26, 2018 12:11:30.087 AM.

CompletionDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time that a job to create a backup job is completed, in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The value of CreationDate is accurate to milliseconds. For example, the value 1516925490.087 represents Friday, January 26, 2018 12:11:30.087 AM.

State -> (string)

The current state of a resource recovery point.

StatusMessage -> (string)

A detailed message explaining the status of the job to back up a resource.

PercentDone -> (string)

Contains an estimated percentage that is complete of a job at the time the job status was queried.

BackupSizeInBytes -> (long)

The size, in bytes, of a backup.

IamRoleArn -> (string)

Specifies the IAM role ARN used to create the target recovery point; for example, arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/S3Access .

CreatedBy -> (structure)

Contains identifying information about the creation of a backup job, including the BackupPlanArn , BackupPlanId , BackupPlanVersion , and BackupRuleId of the backup plan that is used to create it.

BackupPlanId -> (string)

Uniquely identifies a backup plan.

BackupPlanArn -> (string)

An Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that uniquely identifies a backup plan; for example, arn:aws:backup:us-east-1:123456789012:plan:8F81F553-3A74-4A3F-B93D-B3360DC80C50 .

BackupPlanVersion -> (string)

Version IDs are unique, randomly generated, Unicode, UTF-8 encoded strings that are at most 1,024 bytes long. They cannot be edited.

BackupRuleId -> (string)

Uniquely identifies a rule used to schedule the backup of a selection of resources.

ResourceType -> (string)

The type of AWS resource to be backed-up; for example, an Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume or an Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) database.

BytesTransferred -> (long)

The size in bytes transferred to a backup vault at the time that the job status was queried.

ExpectedCompletionDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time that a job to back up resources is expected to be completed, in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The value of ExpectedCompletionDate is accurate to milliseconds. For example, the value 1516925490.087 represents Friday, January 26, 2018 12:11:30.087 AM.

StartBy -> (timestamp)

Specifies the time in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) when a backup job must be started before it is canceled. The value is calculated by adding the start window to the scheduled time. So if the scheduled time were 6:00 PM and the start window is 2 hours, the StartBy time would be 8:00 PM on the date specified. The value of StartBy is accurate to milliseconds. For example, the value 1516925490.087 represents Friday, January 26, 2018 12:11:30.087 AM.
