[ aws . chime ]

list-channel-messages

Description

List all the messages in a channel. Returns a paginated list of ChannelMessages . By default, sorted by creation timestamp in descending order.

Note

Redacted messages appear in the results as empty, since they are only redacted, not deleted. Deleted messages do not appear in the results. This action always returns the latest version of an edited message.

Also, the x-amz-chime-bearer request header is mandatory. Use the AppInstanceUserArn of the user that makes the API call as the value in the header.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-channel-messages
--channel-arn <value>
[--sort-order <value>]
[--not-before <value>]
[--not-after <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--chime-bearer <value>]

[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--channel-arn (string)

The ARN of the channel.

--sort-order (string)

The order in which you want messages sorted. Default is Descending, based on time created.

Possible values:

  • ASCENDING
  • DESCENDING

--not-before (timestamp)

The initial or starting time stamp for your requested messages.

--not-after (timestamp)

The final or ending time stamp for your requested messages.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of messages that you want returned.

--next-token (string)

The token passed by previous API calls until all requested messages are returned.

--chime-bearer (string)

The AppInstanceUserArn of the user that makes the API call.

--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.
