--certificate-identifier (string)

The user-supplied certificate identifier. If this parameter is specified, information for only the specified certificate is returned. If this parameter is omitted, a list of up to MaxRecords certificates is returned. This parameter is not case sensitive.


  • Must match an existing CertificateIdentifier .

--filters (list)

This parameter is not currently supported.

Shorthand Syntax:

Name=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Name": "string",
    "Values": ["string", ...]

--max-records (integer)

The maximum number of records to include in the response. If more records exist than the specified MaxRecords value, a pagination token called a marker is included in the response so that the remaining results can be retrieved.

Default: 100


  • Minimum: 20
  • Maximum: 100

--marker (string)

An optional pagination token provided by a previous DescribeCertificates request. If this parameter is specified, the response includes only records beyond the marker, up to the value specified by MaxRecords .

--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.
