list-tags-for-resource

Description

Lists all tags currently on a named resource.

A tag is a key-value pair where the key and value are case-sensitive. You can use tags to categorize and track all your ElastiCache resources, with the exception of global replication group. When you add or remove tags on replication groups, those actions will be replicated to all nodes in the replication group. For more information, see Resource-level permissions .

If the cluster is not in the available state, ListTagsForResource returns an error.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-tags-for-resource
--resource-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-name (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource for which you want the list of tags, for example arn:aws:elasticache:us-west-2:0123456789:cluster:myCluster or arn:aws:elasticache:us-west-2:0123456789:snapshot:mySnapshot .

For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces .

--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

To list tags for a resource

The following list-tags-for-resource example lists tags for a resource.

aws elasticache list-tags-for-resource \
    --resource-name "arn:aws:elasticache:us-east-1:123456789012:cluster:my-cluster"

Output:

{
    "TagList": [
        {
            "Key": "Project",
            "Value": "querySpeedUp"
        },
        {
            "Key": "Environment",
            "Value": "PROD"
        }
    ]
}
