--filters (list)

One or more filters.

  • amazon-side-asn - The Autonomous System Number (ASN) for the Amazon side of the gateway.
  • attachment.state - The current state of the attachment between the gateway and the VPC (attaching | attached | detaching | detached ).
  • attachment.vpc-id - The ID of an attached VPC.
  • availability-zone - The Availability Zone for the virtual private gateway (if applicable).
  • state - The state of the virtual private gateway (pending | available | deleting | deleted ).
  • tag :key =*value* - The key/value combination of a tag assigned to the resource. Specify the key of the tag in the filter name and the value of the tag in the filter value. For example, for the tag Purpose=X, specify tag:Purpose for the filter name and X 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.
  • type - The type of virtual private gateway. Currently the only supported type is ipsec.1 .
  • vpn-gateway-id - The ID of the virtual private gateway.

Shorthand Syntax:

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

JSON Syntax:

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

--vpn-gateway-ids (list)

One or more virtual private gateway IDs.

Default: Describes all your virtual private gateways.

Syntax:

"string" "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.

--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.
