[ aws . configservice ]



Returns the resource counts across accounts and regions that are present in your AWS Config aggregator. You can request the resource counts by providing filters and GroupByKey.

For example, if the input contains accountID 12345678910 and region us-east-1 in filters, the API returns the count of resources in account ID 12345678910 and region us-east-1. If the input contains ACCOUNT_ID as a GroupByKey, the API returns resource counts for all source accounts that are present in your aggregator.

--group-by-key (string)

The key to group the resource counts.

Possible values:


--limit (integer)

The maximum number of GroupedResourceCount objects returned on each page. The default is 1000. You cannot specify a number greater than 1000. If you specify 0, AWS Config uses the default.

--next-token (string)

The nextToken string returned on a previous page that you use to get the next page of results in a paginated response.

--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.


TotalDiscoveredResources -> (long)

The total number of resources that are present in an aggregator with the filters that you provide.

GroupByKey -> (string)

The key passed into the request object. If GroupByKey is not provided, the result will be empty.

GroupedResourceCounts -> (list)

Returns a list of GroupedResourceCount objects.


The count of resources that are grouped by the group name.

GroupName -> (string)

The name of the group that can be region, account ID, or resource type. For example, region1, region2 if the region was chosen as GroupByKey .

ResourceCount -> (long)

The number of resources in the group.

NextToken -> (string)

The nextToken string returned on a previous page that you use to get the next page of results in a paginated response.
