Options

--agent-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the agent to describe.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Output

AgentArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the agent.

Name -> (string)

The name of the agent.

Status -> (string)

The status of the agent. If the status is ONLINE, then the agent is configured properly and is available to use. The Running status is the normal running status for an agent. If the status is OFFLINE, the agent's VM is turned off or the agent is in an unhealthy state. When the issue that caused the unhealthy state is resolved, the agent returns to ONLINE status.

LastConnectionTime -> (timestamp)

The time that the agent last connected to DataSync.

CreationTime -> (timestamp)

The time that the agent was activated (that is, created in your account).

EndpointType -> (string)

PrivateLinkConfig -> (structure)

The subnet and the security group that DataSync used to access a VPC endpoint.

The ID of the VPC endpoint that is configured for an agent. An agent that is configured with a VPC endpoint will not be accessible over the public internet.
