list-tags-of-resource

Description

List all tags on an Amazon DynamoDB resource. You can call ListTagsOfResource up to 10 times per second, per account.

For an overview on tagging DynamoDB resources, see Tagging for DynamoDB in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

list-tags-of-resource is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Tags

Options

--resource-arn (string)

The Amazon DynamoDB resource with tags to be listed. This value is an Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

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)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • 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.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

Example 1: To list tags of a DynamoDB resource

The following list-tags-of-resource example displays tags for the MusicCollection table.

aws dynamodb list-tags-of-resource \
    --resource-arn arn:aws:dynamodb:us-west-2:123456789012:table/MusicCollection

Output:

{
    "Tags": [
        {
            "Key": "Owner",
            "Value": "blueTeam"
        },
        {
            "Key": "Environment",
            "Value": "Production"
        }
    ]
}

For more information, see Tagging for DynamoDB in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

Example 2: To limit the number of tags returned

The following example limits the number of tags returned to 1. The response includes a NextToken value with which to retrieve the next page of results.

aws dynamodb list-tags-of-resource \
    --resource-arn arn:aws:dynamodb:us-west-2:123456789012:table/MusicCollection \
    --max-items 1

Output:

{
    "Tags": [
        {
            "Key": "Owner",
            "Value": "blueTeam"
        }
    ],
    "NextToken": "abCDeFGhiJKlmnOPqrSTuvwxYZ1aBCdEFghijK7LM51nOpqRSTuv3WxY3ZabC5dEFGhI2Jk3LmnoPQ6RST9"
}

For more information, see Tagging for DynamoDB in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

Example 3: To retrieve the next page of results

The following command uses the NextToken value from a previous call to the list-tags-of-resource command to retrieve another page of results. Since the response in this case does not include a NextToken value, we know that we have reached the end of the results.

aws dynamodb list-tags-of-resource \
    --resource-arn arn:aws:dynamodb:us-west-2:123456789012:table/MusicCollection \
    --starting-token abCDeFGhiJKlmnOPqrSTuvwxYZ1aBCdEFghijK7LM51nOpqRSTuv3WxY3ZabC5dEFGhI2Jk3LmnoPQ6RST9

Output:

{
    "Tags": [
        {
            "Key": "Environment",
            "Value": "Production"
        }
    ]
}

For more information, see Tagging for DynamoDB in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

Output

Tags -> (list)

The tags currently associated with the Amazon DynamoDB resource.

(structure)

Describes a tag. A tag is a key-value pair. You can add up to 50 tags to a single DynamoDB table.

Amazon Web Services-assigned tag names and values are automatically assigned the aws: prefix, which the user cannot assign. Amazon Web Services-assigned tag names do not count towards the tag limit of 50. User-assigned tag names have the prefix user: in the Cost Allocation Report. You cannot backdate the application of a tag.

For an overview on tagging DynamoDB resources, see Tagging for DynamoDB in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide .

Key -> (string)

The key of the tag. Tag keys are case sensitive. Each DynamoDB table can only have up to one tag with the same key. If you try to add an existing tag (same key), the existing tag value will be updated to the new value.

Value -> (string)

The value of the tag. Tag values are case-sensitive and can be null.

NextToken -> (string)

If this value is returned, there are additional results to be displayed. To retrieve them, call ListTagsOfResource again, with NextToken set to this value.
