--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.


ConfigurationItem -> (structure)

Returns a ConfigurationItem object.

version -> (string)

The version number of the resource configuration.

accountId -> (string)

The 12-digit AWS account ID associated with the resource.

configurationItemCaptureTime -> (timestamp)

The time when the configuration recording was initiated.

configurationItemStatus -> (string)

The configuration item status. The valid values are:

  • OK – The resource configuration has been updated
  • ResourceDiscovered – The resource was newly discovered
  • ResourceNotRecorded – The resource was discovered but its configuration was not recorded since the recorder excludes the recording of resources of this type
  • ResourceDeleted – The resource was deleted
  • ResourceDeletedNotRecorded – The resource was deleted but its configuration was not recorded since the recorder excludes the recording of resources of this type


The CIs do not incur any cost.

configurationStateId -> (string)

An identifier that indicates the ordering of the configuration items of a resource.
