[ aws . backup ]

list-backup-plans

Description

Returns a list of existing backup plans for an authenticated account. The list is populated only if the advanced option is set for the backup plan. The list contains information such as Amazon Resource Names (ARNs), plan IDs, creation and deletion dates, version IDs, plan names, and creator request IDs.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-backup-plans
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--include-deleted | --no-include-deleted]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--next-token (string)

The next item following a partial list of returned items. For example, if a request is made to return maxResults number of items, NextToken allows you to return more items in your list starting at the location pointed to by the next token.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of items to be returned.

--include-deleted | --no-include-deleted (boolean)

A Boolean value with a default value of FALSE that returns deleted backup plans when set to TRUE .

--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.
