[ aws . events ]

describe-event-bus

Description

Displays details about an event bus in your account. This can include the external AWS accounts that are permitted to write events to your default event bus, and the associated policy. For custom event buses and partner event buses, it displays the name, ARN, policy, state, and creation time.

To enable your account to receive events from other accounts on its default event bus, use PutPermission .

For more information about partner event buses, see CreateEventBus .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-event-bus
[--name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

The name or ARN of the event bus to show details for. If you omit this, the default event bus is displayed.

--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.
