[ aws . connect ]



Retrieves the view for the specified Amazon Connect instance and view identifier.

The view identifier can be supplied as a ViewId or ARN.

$SAVED needs to be supplied if a view is unpublished.

The view identifier can contain an optional qualifier, for example, <view-id>:$SAVED , which is either an actual version number or an Amazon Connect managed qualifier $SAVED | $LATEST . If it is not supplied, then $LATEST is assumed for customer managed views and an error is returned if there is no published content available. Version 1 is assumed for Amazon Web Services managed views.

--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.
