See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-resources
--type-name <value>
[--type-version-id <value>]
[--role-arn <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--resource-model <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 .

--next-token (string)

If the previous paginated request didn't return all of the remaining results, the response object's NextToken parameter value is set to a token. To retrieve the next set of results, call this action again and assign that token to the request object's NextToken parameter. If there are no remaining results, the previous response object's NextToken parameter is set to null .

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results to be returned with a single call. If the number of available results exceeds this maximum, the response includes a NextToken value that you can assign to the NextToken request parameter to get the next set of results.

The default is 20 .

--resource-model (string)

The resource model to use to select the resources to return.

--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 list the resources of a given type

The following list-resources example lists the AWS::Kinesis::Stream resources provisioned in your AWS account.

aws cloudcontrol list-resources \
    --type-name AWS::Kinesis::Stream

Output:

{
    "TypeName": "AWS::Kinesis::Stream",
    "ResourceDescriptions": [
        {
            "Identifier": "MyKinesisStream",
            "Properties": "{\"Name\":\"MyKinesisStream\"}"
        },
        {
            "Identifier": "AnotherStream",
            "Properties": "{\"Name\":\"AnotherStream\"}"
        }
    ]
}
