list-snapshots-in-recycle-bin

Description

Lists one or more snapshots that are currently in the Recycle Bin.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-snapshots-in-recycle-bin 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: Snapshots

Synopsis

  list-snapshots-in-recycle-bin
[--snapshot-ids <value>]
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--snapshot-ids (list)

The IDs of the snapshots to list. Omit this parameter to list all of the snapshots that are in the Recycle Bin.

(string)

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. 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

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To view snapshots in the Recycle Bin

The following list-snapshots-in-recycle-bin example lists information about snapshots in the Recycle Bin, including the snapshot ID, a description of the snapshot, The ID of the volume from which the snapshot was created, the date and time when the snapshot was deleted and it entered the Recycle Bin, and the date and time when the retention period expires.

aws ec2 list-snapshots-in-recycle-bin \
    --snapshot-id snap-01234567890abcdef

Output:

{
    "SnapshotRecycleBinInfo": [
        {
            "Description": "Monthly data backup snapshot",
            "RecycleBinEnterTime": "2022-12-01T13:00:00.000Z",
            "RecycleBinExitTime": "2022-12-15T13:00:00.000Z",
            "VolumeId": "vol-abcdef09876543210",
            "SnapshotId": "snap-01234567890abcdef"
        }
    ]
}
