Lists all tags for a top-level EFS resource. You must provide the ID of the resource that you want to retrieve the tags for.

This operation requires permissions for the elasticfilesystem:DescribeAccessPoints action.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--resource-id <value>
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--resource-id (string)

Specifies the EFS resource you want to retrieve tags for. You can retrieve tags for EFS file systems and access points using this API endpoint.

--max-results (integer)

(Optional) Specifies the maximum number of tag objects to return in the response. The default value is 100.

--next-token (string)

You can use NextToken in a subsequent request to fetch the next page of access point descriptions if the response payload was paginated.

--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.
