describe-vpc-peering-connections

Description

Describes one or more of your VPC peering connections.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-vpc-peering-connections 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: VpcPeeringConnections

Options

--filters (list)

One or more filters.

  • accepter-vpc-info.cidr-block - The IPv4 CIDR block of the accepter VPC.
  • accepter-vpc-info.owner-id - The AWS account ID of the owner of the accepter VPC.
  • accepter-vpc-info.vpc-id - The ID of the accepter VPC.
  • expiration-time - The expiration date and time for the VPC peering connection.
  • requester-vpc-info.cidr-block - The IPv4 CIDR block of the requester's VPC.
  • requester-vpc-info.owner-id - The AWS account ID of the owner of the requester VPC.
  • requester-vpc-info.vpc-id - The ID of the requester VPC.
  • status-code - The status of the VPC peering connection (pending-acceptance | failed | expired | provisioning | active | deleting | deleted | rejected ).
  • status-message - A message that provides more information about the status of the VPC peering connection, if applicable.
  • tag :key- The key/value combination of a tag assigned to the resource. Use the tag key in the filter name and the tag value as the filter value. For example, to find all resources that have a tag with the key Owner and the value TeamA , specify tag:Owner for the filter name and TeamA for the filter value.
  • tag-key - The key of a tag assigned to the resource. Use this filter to find all resources assigned a tag with a specific key, regardless of the tag value.
  • vpc-peering-connection-id - The ID of the VPC peering connection.

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 .

--vpc-peering-connection-ids (list)

One or more VPC peering connection IDs.

Default: Describes all your VPC peering connections.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--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.
