describe-replace-root-volume-tasks

Description

Describes a root volume replacement task. For more information, see Replace a root volume in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-replace-root-volume-tasks 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: ReplaceRootVolumeTasks

Synopsis

[--replace-root-volume-task-ids <value>]
[--filters <value>]
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]

Options

--replace-root-volume-task-ids (list)

The ID of the root volume replacement task to view.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--filters (list)

Filter to use:

  • instance-id - The ID of the instance for which the root volume replacement task was created.

(structure)

A filter name and value pair that is used to return a more specific list of results from a describe operation. Filters can be used to match a set of resources by specific criteria, such as tags, attributes, or IDs.

Name -> (string)

The name of the filter. Filter names are case-sensitive.

Values -> (list)

The filter values. Filter values are case-sensitive.

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

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

JSON Syntax:

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

--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.

Output

ReplaceRootVolumeTasks -> (list)

Information about the root volume replacement task.

(structure)

Information about a root volume replacement task.

ReplaceRootVolumeTaskId -> (string)

The ID of the root volume replacement task.

InstanceId -> (string)

The ID of the instance for which the root volume replacement task was created.

TaskState -> (string)

The state of the task. The task can be in one of the following states:

  • pending - the replacement volume is being created.
  • in-progress - the original volume is being detached and the replacement volume is being attached.
  • succeeded - the replacement volume has been successfully attached to the instance and the instance is available.
  • failing - the replacement task is in the process of failing.
  • failed - the replacement task has failed but the original root volume is still attached.
  • failing-detached - the replacement task is in the process of failing. The instance might have no root volume attached.
  • failed-detached - the replacement task has failed and the instance has no root volume attached.

StartTime -> (string)

The time the task was started.

CompleteTime -> (string)

The time the task completed.

Tags -> (list)

The tags assigned to the task.

(structure)

Describes a tag.

Key -> (string)

The key of the tag.

Constraints: Tag keys are case-sensitive and accept a maximum of 127 Unicode characters. May not begin with aws: .

Value -> (string)

The value of the tag.

Constraints: Tag values are case-sensitive and accept a maximum of 255 Unicode characters.

NextToken -> (string)

The token to use to retrieve the next page of results. This value is null when there are no more results to return.
