[ aws . forecast ]



Describes a forecast created using the CreateForecast operation.

In addition to listing the properties provided in the CreateForecast request, this operation lists the following properties:

  • DatasetGroupArn - The dataset group that provided the training data.
  • CreationTime
  • LastModificationTime
  • Status
  • Message - If an error occurred, information about the error.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--forecast-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--forecast-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the forecast.

--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.


ForecastArn -> (string)

The forecast ARN as specified in the request.

ForecastName -> (string)

The name of the forecast.

ForecastTypes -> (list)

The quantiles at which probabilistic forecasts were generated.


PredictorArn -> (string)

The ARN of the predictor used to generate the forecast.

DatasetGroupArn -> (string)

Message -> (string)

If an error occurred, an informational message about the error.

CreationTime -> (timestamp)
