describe-directories

Description

Obtains information about the directories that belong to this account.

You can retrieve information about specific directories by passing the directory identifiers in the DirectoryIds parameter. Otherwise, all directories that belong to the current account are returned.

This operation supports pagination with the use of the NextToken request and response parameters. If more results are available, the DescribeDirectoriesResult.NextToken member contains a token that you pass in the next call to DescribeDirectories to retrieve the next set of items.

You can also specify a maximum number of return results with the Limit parameter.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-directories
[--directory-ids <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--limit <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--directory-ids (list)

A list of identifiers of the directories for which to obtain the information. If this member is null, all directories that belong to the current account are returned.

An empty list results in an InvalidParameterException being thrown.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--next-token (string)

The DescribeDirectoriesResult.NextToken value from a previous call to DescribeDirectories . Pass null if this is the first call.

--limit (integer)

The maximum number of items to return. If this value is zero, the maximum number of items is specified by the limitations of the operation.

--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.
