list-change-sets

Description

Returns the ID and status of each active change set for a stack. For example, AWS CloudFormation lists change sets that are in the CREATE_IN_PROGRESS or CREATE_PENDING state.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-change-sets 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: Summaries

Synopsis

  list-change-sets
--stack-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--stack-name (string)

The name or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the stack for which you want to list change sets.

--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 .

--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 list change sets

The following list-change-sets example displays a list of the pending change sets for the specified stack.

aws cloudformation list-change-sets \
   --stack-name my-stack

Output:

{
    "Summaries": [
        {
            "StackId": "arn:aws:cloudformation:us-west-2:123456789012:stack/my-stack/d0a825a0-e4cd-xmpl-b9fb-061c69e99204",
            "StackName": "my-stack",
            "ChangeSetId": "arn:aws:cloudformation:us-west-2:123456789012:changeSet/my-change-set/70160340-7914-xmpl-bcbf-128a1fa78b5d",
            "ChangeSetName": "my-change-set",
            "ExecutionStatus": "AVAILABLE",
            "Status": "CREATE_COMPLETE",
            "CreationTime": "2019-10-02T05:38:54.297Z"
        }
    ]
}

Output

Summaries -> (list)

A list of ChangeSetSummary structures that provides the ID and status of each change set for the specified stack.

(structure)

The ChangeSetSummary structure describes a change set, its status, and the stack with which it's associated.

StackId -> (string)

The ID of the stack with which the change set is associated.

StackName -> (string)

The name of the stack with which the change set is associated.

ChangeSetId -> (string)

The ID of the change set.

ChangeSetName -> (string)

The name of the change set.

ExecutionStatus -> (string)

If the change set execution status is AVAILABLE , you can execute the change set. If you can’t execute the change set, the status indicates why. For example, a change set might be in an UNAVAILABLE state because AWS CloudFormation is still creating it or in an OBSOLETE state because the stack was already updated.

Status -> (string)

The state of the change set, such as CREATE_IN_PROGRESS , CREATE_COMPLETE , or FAILED .

StatusReason -> (string)

A description of the change set's status. For example, if your change set is in the FAILED state, AWS CloudFormation shows the error message.

CreationTime -> (timestamp)

The start time when the change set was created, in UTC.

Description -> (string)

Descriptive information about the change set.

IncludeNestedStacks -> (boolean)

Specifies the current setting of IncludeNestedStacks for the change set.

ParentChangeSetId -> (string)

The parent change set ID.

RootChangeSetId -> (string)

The root change set ID.

NextToken -> (string)

If the output exceeds 1 MB, a string that identifies the next page of change sets. If there is no additional page, this value is null.
