describe-budgets

Description

Lists the budgets that are associated with an account.

Warning

The Request Syntax section shows the BudgetLimit syntax. For PlannedBudgetLimits , see the Examples section.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-budgets 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: Budgets

Synopsis

  describe-budgets
--account-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--account-id (string)

The accountId that is associated with the budgets that you want descriptions of.

--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.

Output

Budgets -> (list)

A list of budgets.

(structure)

Represents the output of the CreateBudget operation. The content consists of the detailed metadata and data file information, and the current status of the budget object.

This is the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) pattern for a budget:

arn:aws:budgets::AccountId:budget/budgetName

BudgetName -> (string)

The name of a budget. The name must be unique within an account. The : and \ characters aren't allowed in BudgetName .

BudgetLimit -> (structure)

The total amount of cost, usage, RI utilization, RI coverage, Savings Plans utilization, or Savings Plans coverage that you want to track with your budget.

BudgetLimit is required for cost or usage budgets, but optional for RI or Savings Plans utilization or coverage budgets. RI and Savings Plans utilization or coverage budgets default to 100 . This is the only valid value for RI or Savings Plans utilization or coverage budgets. You can't use BudgetLimit with PlannedBudgetLimits for CreateBudget and UpdateBudget actions.

Amount -> (string)

The cost or usage amount that's associated with a budget forecast, actual spend, or budget threshold.

Unit -> (string)

The unit of measurement that's used for the budget forecast, actual spend, or budget threshold, such as USD or GBP.

PlannedBudgetLimits -> (map)

A map containing multiple BudgetLimit , including current or future limits.

PlannedBudgetLimits is available for cost or usage budget and supports both monthly and quarterly TimeUnit .

For monthly budgets, provide 12 months of PlannedBudgetLimits values. This must start from the current month and include the next 11 months. The key is the start of the month, UTC in epoch seconds.

For quarterly budgets, provide four quarters of PlannedBudgetLimits value entries in standard calendar quarter increments. This must start from the current quarter and include the next three quarters. The key is the start of the quarter, UTC in epoch seconds.

If the planned budget expires before 12 months for monthly or four quarters for quarterly, provide the PlannedBudgetLimits values only for the remaining periods.

If the budget begins at a date in the future, provide PlannedBudgetLimits values from the start date of the budget.

After all of the BudgetLimit values in PlannedBudgetLimits are used, the budget continues to use the last limit as the BudgetLimit . At that point, the planned budget provides the same experience as a fixed budget.

DescribeBudget and DescribeBudgets response along with PlannedBudgetLimits also contain BudgetLimit representing the current month or quarter limit present in PlannedBudgetLimits . This only applies to budgets that are created with PlannedBudgetLimits . Budgets that are created without PlannedBudgetLimits only contain BudgetLimit . They don't contain PlannedBudgetLimits .

key -> (string)

A generic string.

value -> (structure)

Amount -> (string)

The cost or usage amount that's associated with a budget forecast, actual spend, or budget threshold.

Unit -> (string)

The unit of measurement that's used for the budget forecast, actual spend, or budget threshold, such as USD or GBP.

TimePeriod -> (structure)

The period of time that's covered by a budget. You setthe start date and end date. The start date must come before the end date. The end date must come before 06/15/87 00:00 UTC .

If you create your budget and don't specify a start date, Amazon Web Services defaults to the start of your chosen time period (DAILY, MONTHLY, QUARTERLY, or ANNUALLY). For example, if you created your budget on January 24, 2018, chose DAILY , and didn't set a start date, Amazon Web Services set your start date to 01/24/18 00:00 UTC . If you chose MONTHLY , Amazon Web Services set your start date to 01/01/18 00:00 UTC . If you didn't specify an end date, Amazon Web Services set your end date to 06/15/87 00:00 UTC . The defaults are the same for the Billing and Cost Management console and the API.

You can change either date with the UpdateBudget operation.

After the end date, Amazon Web Services deletes the budget and all the associated notifications and subscribers.

Start -> (timestamp)

The start date for a budget. If you created your budget and didn't specify a start date, Amazon Web Services defaults to the start of your chosen time period (DAILY, MONTHLY, QUARTERLY, or ANNUALLY). For example, if you created your budget on January 24, 2018, chose DAILY , and didn't set a start date, Amazon Web Services set your start date to 01/24/18 00:00 UTC . If you chose MONTHLY , Amazon Web Services set your start date to 01/01/18 00:00 UTC . The defaults are the same for the Billing and Cost Management console and the API.

You can change your start date with the UpdateBudget operation.

End -> (timestamp)

The end date for a budget. If you didn't specify an end date, Amazon Web Services set your end date to 06/15/87 00:00 UTC . The defaults are the same for the Billing and Cost Management console and the API.

After the end date, Amazon Web Services deletes the budget and all the associated notifications and subscribers. You can change your end date with the UpdateBudget operation.

AutoAdjustType -> (string)

The string that defines whether your budget auto-adjusts based on historical or forecasted data.

HistoricalOptions -> (structure)

The parameters that define or describe the historical data that your auto-adjusting budget is based on.

BudgetAdjustmentPeriod -> (integer)

The number of budget periods included in the moving-average calculation that determines your auto-adjusted budget amount. The maximum value depends on the TimeUnit granularity of the budget:

  • For the DAILY granularity, the maximum value is 60 .
  • For the MONTHLY granularity, the maximum value is 12 .
  • For the QUARTERLY granularity, the maximum value is 4 .
  • For the ANNUALLY granularity, the maximum value is 1 .

LookBackAvailablePeriods -> (integer)

The integer that describes how many budget periods in your BudgetAdjustmentPeriod are included in the calculation of your current BudgetLimit . If the first budget period in your BudgetAdjustmentPeriod has no cost data, then that budget period isn’t included in the average that determines your budget limit.

For example, if you set BudgetAdjustmentPeriod as 4 quarters, but your account had no cost data in the first quarter, then only the last three quarters are included in the calculation. In this scenario, LookBackAvailablePeriods returns 3 .

You can’t set your own LookBackAvailablePeriods . The value is automatically calculated from the BudgetAdjustmentPeriod and your historical cost data.

LastAutoAdjustTime -> (timestamp)

The last time that your budget was auto-adjusted.

NextToken -> (string)

The pagination token in the service response that indicates the next set of results that you can retrieve.
