describe-addresses-attribute

Description

Describes the attributes of the specified Elastic IP addresses. For requirements, see Using reverse DNS for email applications .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-addresses-attribute 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: Addresses

Synopsis

  describe-addresses-attribute
[--allocation-ids <value>]
[--attribute <value>]
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--allocation-ids (list)

[EC2-VPC] The allocation IDs.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--attribute (string)

The attribute of the IP address.

Possible values:

  • domain-name

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--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 .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To view the attributes of the domain name associated with an elastic IP address

The following describe-addresses-attribute examples return the attributes of the domain name associated with the elastic IP address.

Linux:

aws ec2 describe-addresses-attribute \
    --allocation-ids eipalloc-abcdef01234567890 \
    --attribute domain-name

Windows:

aws ec2 describe-addresses-attribute ^
    --allocation-ids eipalloc-abcdef01234567890 ^
    --attribute domain-name

Output:

{
    "Addresses": [
        {
            "PublicIp": "192.0.2.0",
            "AllocationId": "eipalloc-abcdef01234567890",
            "PtrRecord": "example.com."
        }
    ]
}

To view the attributes of an elastic IP address, you must have first associated a domain name with the elastic IP address. For more information, see Use reverse DNS for email applications in the Amazon EC2 User Guide or modify-address-attribute in the AWS CLI Command Reference.
