[ aws . connect ]



Gets details and status of a phone number that’s claimed to your Amazon Connect instance or traffic distribution group.


If the number is claimed to a traffic distribution group, and you are calling in the Amazon Web Services Region where the traffic distribution group was created, you can use either a phone number ARN or UUID value for the PhoneNumberId URI request parameter. However, if the number is claimed to a traffic distribution group and you are calling this API in the alternate Amazon Web Services Region associated with the traffic distribution group, you must provide a full phone number ARN. If a UUID is provided in this scenario, you will receive a ResourceNotFoundException .

--phone-number-id (string)

A unique identifier for the phone number.

--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.

A common reason for a failure may be that the TargetArn value you are claiming or updating a phone number to has reached its limit of total claimed numbers. If you received a FAILED status from a ClaimPhoneNumber API call, you have one day to retry claiming the phone number before the number is released back to the inventory for other customers to claim.


You will not be billed for the phone number during the 1-day period if number claiming fails.
