Description

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  restore-snapshot-tier
--snapshot-id <value>
[--temporary-restore-days <value>]
[--permanent-restore | --no-permanent-restore]
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--snapshot-id (string)

The ID of the snapshot to restore.

--temporary-restore-days (integer)

Specifies the number of days for which to temporarily restore an archived snapshot. Required for temporary restores only. The snapshot will be automatically re-archived after this period.

To temporarily restore an archived snapshot, specify the number of days and omit the PermanentRestore parameter or set it to false .

--permanent-restore | --no-permanent-restore (boolean)

Indicates whether to permanently restore an archived snapshot. To permanently restore an archived snapshot, specify true and omit the RestoreSnapshotTierRequest$TemporaryRestoreDays parameter.

--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.

--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 .

Example 1: To permanently restore an archived snapshot

The following restore-snapshot-tier example permanently restores the specified snapshot. Specify the --snapshot-id and include the permanent-restore option.

aws ec2 restore-snapshot-tier \
    --snapshot-id snap-01234567890abcedf \
    --permanent-restore

Output:

{
    "SnapshotId": "snap-01234567890abcedf",
    "IsPermanentRestore": true
}

For more information about snapshot archiving, see Archive Amazon EBS snapshots <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/snapshot-archive.html> in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.

Example 2: To temporarily restore an archived snapshot

The following restore-snapshot-tier example temporarily restores the specified snapshot. Omit the --permanent-restore option. Specify the --snapshot-id and, for temporary-restore-days, specify the number of days for which to restore the snapshot. temporary-restore-days must be specified in days. The allowed range is 1 to 180. If you do not specify a value, it defaults to 1 day.

aws ec2 restore-snapshot-tier \
    --snapshot-id snap-01234567890abcedf \
    --temporary-restore-days 5

Output:

{
    "SnapshotId": "snap-01234567890abcedf",
    "RestoreDuration": 5,
    "IsPermanentRestore": false
}

Example 3: To modify the restore period

aws ec2 restore-snapshot-tier \
    --snapshot-id snap-01234567890abcedf
    --temporary-restore-days 10

Output:

{
    "SnapshotId": "snap-01234567890abcedf",
    "RestoreDuration": 10,
    "IsPermanentRestore": false
}

    "IsPermanentRestore": true
}
