describe-identity-id-format

Description

Describes the ID format settings for resources for the specified IAM user, IAM role, or root user. For example, you can view the resource types that are enabled for longer IDs. This request only returns information about resource types whose ID formats can be modified; it does not return information about other resource types. For more information, see Resource IDs in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .

The following resource types support longer IDs: bundle | conversion-task | customer-gateway | dhcp-options | elastic-ip-allocation | elastic-ip-association | export-task | flow-log | image | import-task | instance | internet-gateway | network-acl | network-acl-association | network-interface | network-interface-attachment | prefix-list | reservation | route-table | route-table-association | security-group | snapshot | subnet | subnet-cidr-block-association | volume | vpc | vpc-cidr-block-association | vpc-endpoint | vpc-peering-connection | vpn-connection | vpn-gateway .

These settings apply to the principal specified in the request. They do not apply to the principal that makes the request.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-identity-id-format
--principal-arn <value>
[--resource <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--principal-arn (string)

The ARN of the principal, which can be an IAM role, IAM user, or the root user.

--resource (string)

The type of resource: bundle | conversion-task | customer-gateway | dhcp-options | elastic-ip-allocation | elastic-ip-association | export-task | flow-log | image | import-task | instance | internet-gateway | network-acl | network-acl-association | network-interface | network-interface-attachment | prefix-list | reservation | route-table | route-table-association | security-group | snapshot | subnet | subnet-cidr-block-association | volume | vpc | vpc-cidr-block-association | vpc-endpoint | vpc-peering-connection | vpn-connection | vpn-gateway

--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.

Examples

To describe the ID format for an IAM role

The following describe-identity-id-format example describes the ID format received by instances created by the IAM role EC2Role in your AWS account.

aws ec2 describe-identity-id-format \
    --principal-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/my-iam-role \
    --resource instance

The following output indicates that instances created by this role receive IDs in long ID format.

{
    "Statuses": [
        {
            "Deadline": "2016-12-15T00:00:00Z",
            "Resource": "instance",
            "UseLongIds": true
        }
    ]
}

To describe the ID format for an IAM user

The following describe-identity-id-format example describes the ID format received by snapshots created by the IAM user AdminUser in your AWS account.

aws ec2 describe-identity-id-format \
    --principal-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:user/AdminUser \
    --resource snapshot

The output indicates that snapshots created by this user receive IDs in long ID format.

{
    "Statuses": [
        {
            "Deadline": "2016-12-15T00:00:00Z",
            "Resource": "snapshot",
            "UseLongIds": true
        }
    ]
}

Output

Statuses -> (list)

Information about the ID format for the resources.

(structure)

Describes the ID format for a resource.

Deadline -> (timestamp)

The date in UTC at which you are permanently switched over to using longer IDs. If a deadline is not yet available for this resource type, this field is not returned.

Resource -> (string)

The type of resource.

UseLongIds -> (boolean)

Indicates whether longer IDs (17-character IDs) are enabled for the resource.
