export-ebs-volume-recommendations

Description

Exports optimization recommendations for Amazon EBS volumes.

Recommendations are exported in a comma-separated values (.csv) file, and its metadata in a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) (.json) file, to an existing Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket that you specify. For more information, see Exporting Recommendations in the Compute Optimizer User Guide .

You can have only one Amazon EBS volume export job in progress per Amazon Web Services Region.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--account-ids (list)

The IDs of the Amazon Web Services accounts for which to export Amazon EBS volume recommendations.

If your account is the management account of an organization, use this parameter to specify the member account for which you want to export recommendations.

This parameter cannot be specified together with the include member accounts parameter. The parameters are mutually exclusive.

Recommendations for member accounts are not included in the export if this parameter, or the include member accounts parameter, is omitted.

You can specify multiple account IDs per request.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--filters (list)

An array of objects to specify a filter that exports a more specific set of Amazon EBS volume recommendations.

(structure)

Describes a filter that returns a more specific list of Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume recommendations. Use this filter with the GetEBSVolumeRecommendations action.

You can use LambdaFunctionRecommendationFilter with the GetLambdaFunctionRecommendations action, JobFilter with the DescribeRecommendationExportJobs action, and Filter with the GetAutoScalingGroupRecommendations and GetEC2InstanceRecommendations actions.

name -> (string)

The name of the filter.

Specify Finding to return recommendations with a specific finding classification (for example, NotOptimized ).

values -> (list)

The value of the filter.

The valid values are Optimized , or NotOptimized .

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

name=string,values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

  {
    "name": "Finding",
    "values": ["string", ...]

--s3-destination-config (structure)

Describes the destination Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket name and key prefix for a recommendations export job.

You must create the destination Amazon S3 bucket for your recommendations export before you create the export job. Compute Optimizer does not create the S3 bucket for you. After you create the S3 bucket, ensure that it has the required permission policy to allow Compute Optimizer to write the export file to it. If you plan to specify an object prefix when you create the export job, you must include the object prefix in the policy that you add to the S3 bucket. For more information, see Amazon S3 Bucket Policy for Compute Optimizer in the Compute Optimizer User Guide .

bucket -> (string)

The name of the Amazon S3 bucket to use as the destination for an export job.

keyPrefix -> (string)

The Amazon S3 bucket prefix for an export job.

Shorthand Syntax:

bucket=string,keyPrefix=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "bucket": "string",
  "keyPrefix": "string"
}

--file-format (string)

The format of the export file.

The only export file format currently supported is Csv .

Possible values:

  • Csv

--include-member-accounts | --no-include-member-accounts (boolean)

Indicates whether to include recommendations for resources in all member accounts of the organization if your account is the management account of an organization.

The member accounts must also be opted in to Compute Optimizer, and trusted access for Compute Optimizer must be enabled in the organization account. For more information, see Compute Optimizer and Amazon Web Services Organizations trusted access in the Compute Optimizer User Guide .

Recommendations for member accounts of the organization are not included in the export file if this parameter is omitted.

This parameter cannot be specified together with the account IDs parameter. The parameters are mutually exclusive.

Recommendations for member accounts are not included in the export if this parameter, or the account IDs parameter, is omitted.

--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.
