describe-notifications-for-budget

Description

Lists the notifications that are associated with a budget.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-notifications-for-budget 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: Notifications

Synopsis

  describe-notifications-for-budget
--account-id <value>
--budget-name <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 budget whose notifications you want descriptions of.

--budget-name (string)

The name of the budget whose notifications 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.

Examples

To retrieve the notifications for a budget

This example retrieves the notifications for a Cost and Usage budget.

Command:

aws budgets describe-notifications-for-budget --account-id 111122223333 --budget-name "Example Budget" --max-results 5

Output:

{
   "Notifications": [
       {
           "Threshold": 80.0,
           "ComparisonOperator": "GREATER_THAN",
           "NotificationType": "ACTUAL"
       }
   ]
}

Output

Notifications -> (list)

A list of notifications that are associated with a budget.

(structure)

A notification that is associated with a budget. A budget can have up to five notifications.

Each notification must have at least one subscriber. A notification can have one SNS subscriber and up to 10 email subscribers, for a total of 11 subscribers.

For example, if you have a budget for 200 dollars and you want to be notified when you go over 160 dollars, create a notification with the following parameters:

  • A notificationType of ACTUAL
  • A thresholdType of PERCENTAGE
  • A comparisonOperator of GREATER_THAN
  • A notification threshold of 80

NotificationType -> (string)

Whether the notification is for how much you have spent (ACTUAL ) or for how much you're forecasted to spend (FORECASTED ).

ComparisonOperator -> (string)

The comparison that is used for this notification.

Threshold -> (double)

The threshold that is associated with a notification. Thresholds are always a percentage.

ThresholdType -> (string)

The type of threshold for a notification. For ABSOLUTE_VALUE thresholds, AWS notifies you when you go over or are forecasted to go over your total cost threshold. For PERCENTAGE thresholds, AWS notifies you when you go over or are forecasted to go over a certain percentage of your forecasted spend. For example, if you have a budget for 200 dollars and you have a PERCENTAGE threshold of 80%, AWS notifies you when you go over 160 dollars.

NotificationState -> (string)

Whether this notification is in alarm. If a budget notification is in the ALARM state, you have passed the set threshold for the budget.

NextToken -> (string)

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