get-resource

Description

Returns information about the current state of the specified resource. For details, see Reading a resource's current state .

You can use this action to return information about an existing resource in your account and Amazon Web Services Region, whether or not those resources were provisioned using Cloud Control API.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-resource
--type-name <value>
[--type-version-id <value>]
[--role-arn <value>]
--identifier <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--type-name (string)

The name of the resource type.

--type-version-id (string)

For private resource types, the type version to use in this resource operation. If you do not specify a resource version, CloudFormation uses the default version.

--role-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Identity and Access Management (IAM) for Cloud Control API to use when performing this resource operation. The role specified must have the permissions required for this operation. The necessary permissions for each event handler are defined in the `` handlers `` section of the resource type definition schema .

If you do not specify a role, Cloud Control API uses a temporary session created using your Amazon Web Services user credentials.

For more information, see Specifying credentials in the Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API User Guide .

--identifier (string)

The identifier for the resource.

You can specify the primary identifier, or any secondary identifier defined for the resource type in its resource schema. You can only specify one identifier. Primary identifiers can be specified as a string or JSON; secondary identifiers must be specified as JSON.

For compound primary identifiers (that is, one that consists of multiple resource properties strung together), to specify the primary identifier as a string, list the property values in the order they are specified in the primary identifier definition, separated by | .

For more information, see Identifying resources in the Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API User Guide .

--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.

Examples

To get the current state of a resource

The following get-resource example returns the current state of the AWS::Kinesis::Stream resource named ResourceExample.

aws cloudcontrol get-resource \
    --type-name AWS::Kinesis::Stream \
    --identifier ResourceExample

Output:

{
    "TypeName": "AWS::Kinesis::Stream",
    "ResourceDescription": {
        "Identifier": "ResourceExample",
        "Properties": "{\"Arn\":\"arn:aws:kinesis:us-west-2:099908667365:stream/ResourceExample\",\"RetentionPeriodHours\":168,\"Name\":\"ResourceExample\",\"ShardCount\":3}"
    }
}

For more information, see Reading a resource's current state in the Cloud Control API User Guide.
