See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--name-prefix <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--limit <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--name-prefix (string)

Specifying this limits the results to only those event buses with names that start with the specified prefix.

--next-token (string)

The token returned by a previous call to retrieve the next set of results.

--limit (integer)

Specifying this limits the number of results returned by this operation. The operation also returns a NextToken which you can use in a subsequent operation to retrieve the next set of results.

--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.

These events come from the partners services or applications.

Arn -> (string)

The ARN of the event bus.

Policy -> (string)

The permissions policy of the event bus, describing which other Amazon Web Services accounts can write events to this event bus.
