describe-stack-resource-drifts

Description

Returns drift information for the resources that have been checked for drift in the specified stack. This includes actual and expected configuration values for resources where AWS CloudFormation detects configuration drift.

For a given stack, there will be one StackResourceDrift for each stack resource that has been checked for drift. Resources that have not yet been checked for drift are not included. Resources that do not currently support drift detection are not checked, and so not included. For a list of resources that support drift detection, see Resources that Support Drift Detection .

Use DetectStackResourceDrift to detect drift on individual resources, or DetectStackDrift to detect drift on all supported resources for a given stack.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-stack-resource-drifts
--stack-name <value>
[--stack-resource-drift-status-filters <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--stack-name (string)

The name of the stack for which you want drift information.

--stack-resource-drift-status-filters (list)

The resource drift status values to use as filters for the resource drift results returned.

  • DELETED : The resource differs from its expected template configuration in that the resource has been deleted.
  • MODIFIED : One or more resource properties differ from their expected template values.
  • IN_SYNC : The resources's actual configuration matches its expected template configuration.
  • NOT_CHECKED : AWS CloudFormation does not currently return this value.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

Where valid values are:
  IN_SYNC
  MODIFIED
  DELETED
  NOT_CHECKED

--next-token (string)

A string that identifies the next page of stack resource drift results.

--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.

--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.

Output

StackResourceDrifts -> (list)

Drift information for the resources that have been checked for drift in the specified stack. This includes actual and expected configuration values for resources where AWS CloudFormation detects drift.

For a given stack, there will be one StackResourceDrift for each stack resource that has been checked for drift. Resources that have not yet been checked for drift are not included. Resources that do not currently support drift detection are not checked, and so not included. For a list of resources that support drift detection, see Resources that Support Drift Detection .

(structure)

Contains the drift information for a resource that has been checked for drift. This includes actual and expected property values for resources in which AWS CloudFormation has detected drift. Only resource properties explicitly defined in the stack template are checked for drift. For more information, see Detecting Unregulated Configuration Changes to Stacks and Resources .

Resources that do not currently support drift detection cannot be checked. For a list of resources that support drift detection, see Resources that Support Drift Detection .

Use DetectStackResourceDrift to detect drift on individual resources, or DetectStackDrift to detect drift on all resources in a given stack that support drift detection.

StackId -> (string)

The ID of the stack.

LogicalResourceId -> (string)

The logical name of the resource specified in the template.

PhysicalResourceId -> (string)

The name or unique identifier that corresponds to a physical instance ID of a resource supported by AWS CloudFormation.

PhysicalResourceIdContext -> (list)

Context information that enables AWS CloudFormation to uniquely identify a resource. AWS CloudFormation uses context key-value pairs in cases where a resource's logical and physical IDs are not enough to uniquely identify that resource. Each context key-value pair specifies a unique resource that contains the targeted resource.

Context information that enables AWS CloudFormation to uniquely identify a resource. AWS CloudFormation uses context key-value pairs in cases where a resource's logical and physical IDs are not enough to uniquely identify that resource. Each context key-value pair specifies a resource that contains the targeted resource.

Key -> (string)

The resource context key.

Value -> (string)

The resource context value.

ResourceType -> (string)

The type of the resource.

ExpectedProperties -> (string)

A JSON structure containing the expected property values of the stack resource, as defined in the stack template and any values specified as template parameters.

For resources whose StackResourceDriftStatus is DELETED , this structure will not be present.

ActualProperties -> (string)

A JSON structure containing the actual property values of the stack resource.

For resources whose StackResourceDriftStatus is DELETED , this structure will not be present.

PropertyDifferences -> (list)

A collection of the resource properties whose actual values differ from their expected values. These will be present only for resources whose StackResourceDriftStatus is MODIFIED .

(structure)

Information about a resource property whose actual value differs from its expected value, as defined in the stack template and any values specified as template parameters. These will be present only for resources whose StackResourceDriftStatus is MODIFIED . For more information, see Detecting Unregulated Configuration Changes to Stacks and Resources .

PropertyPath -> (string)

The fully-qualified path to the resource property.

ExpectedValue -> (string)

The expected property value of the resource property, as defined in the stack template and any values specified as template parameters.

ActualValue -> (string)

The actual property value of the resource property.

DifferenceType -> (string)

The type of property difference.

  • ADD : A value has been added to a resource property that is an array or list data type.
  • REMOVE : The property has been removed from the current resource configuration.
  • NOT_EQUAL : The current property value differs from its expected value (as defined in the stack template and any values specified as template parameters).

StackResourceDriftStatus -> (string)

Status of the resource's actual configuration compared to its expected configuration

  • DELETED : The resource differs from its expected template configuration because the resource has been deleted.
  • MODIFIED : One or more resource properties differ from their expected values (as defined in the stack template and any values specified as template parameters).
  • IN_SYNC : The resources's actual configuration matches its expected template configuration.
  • NOT_CHECKED : AWS CloudFormation does not currently return this value.

Timestamp -> (timestamp)

Time at which AWS CloudFormation performed drift detection on the stack resource.

NextToken -> (string)

If the request doesn't return all of the remaining results, NextToken is set to a token. To retrieve the next set of results, call DescribeStackResourceDrifts again and assign that token to the request object's NextToken parameter. If the request returns all results, NextToken is set to null .
