list-backup-jobs

Description

Returns a list of existing backup jobs for an authenticated account for the last 30 days. For a longer period of time, consider using these monitoring tools .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-backup-jobs 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: BackupJobs

Options

--by-resource-arn (string)

Returns only backup jobs that match the specified resource Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

--by-state (string)

Returns only backup jobs that are in the specified state.

Possible values:

  • CREATED
  • PENDING
  • RUNNING
  • ABORTING
  • ABORTED
  • COMPLETED
  • FAILED
  • EXPIRED

--by-backup-vault-name (string)

Returns only backup jobs that will be stored in the specified backup vault. Backup vaults are identified by names that are unique to the account used to create them and the Amazon Web Services Region where they are created. They consist of lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens.

--by-created-before (timestamp)

Returns only backup jobs that were created before the specified date.

--by-created-after (timestamp)

Returns only backup jobs that were created after the specified date.

--by-resource-type (string)

Returns only backup jobs for the specified resources:

  • Aurora for Amazon Aurora
  • DocumentDB for Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility)
  • DynamoDB for Amazon DynamoDB
  • EBS for Amazon Elastic Block Store
  • EC2 for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud
  • EFS for Amazon Elastic File System
  • FSx for Amazon FSx
  • Neptune for Amazon Neptune
  • RDS for Amazon Relational Database Service
  • Storage Gateway for Storage Gateway
  • S3 for Amazon S3
  • VirtualMachine for virtual machines

--by-account-id (string)

The account ID to list the jobs from. Returns only backup jobs associated with the specified account ID.

If used from an Organizations management account, passing * returns all jobs across the organization.

--by-complete-after (timestamp)

Returns only backup jobs completed after a date expressed in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

--by-complete-before (timestamp)

Returns only backup jobs completed before a date expressed in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

--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

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

(structure)

Contains detailed information about a backup job.

AccountId -> (string)

The account ID that owns the backup job.

BackupJobId -> (string)

Uniquely identifies a request to 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 Amazon Web Services Region where they are created. They consist of lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens.

BackupVaultArn -> (string)

ResourceArn -> (string)

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

CreationDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time 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 a job to create a backup job is completed, in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The value of CompletionDate 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 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. IAM roles other than the default role must include either AWSBackup or AwsBackup in the role name. For example, arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/AWSBackupRDSAccess . Role names without those strings lack permissions to perform backup jobs.

CreatedBy -> (structure)

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

BackupPlanId -> (string)

Uniquely identifies a backup plan.

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.

ExpectedCompletionDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time 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.

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.

ResourceType -> (string)

The type of Amazon Web Services resource to be backed up; for example, an Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume or an Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) database. For Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) backups, the only supported resource type is Amazon EC2.

BytesTransferred -> (long)

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

BackupOptions -> (map)

Specifies the backup option for a selected resource. This option is only available for Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) backup jobs.

Valid values: Set to "WindowsVSS":"enabled" to enable the WindowsVSS backup option and create a Windows VSS backup. Set to "WindowsVSS":"disabled" to create a regular backup. If you specify an invalid option, you get an InvalidParameterValueException exception.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

BackupType -> (string)
