describe-job

Description

This operation returns information about a job you previously initiated, including the job initiation date, the user who initiated the job, the job status code/message and the Amazon SNS topic to notify after Amazon Glacier completes the job. For more information about initiating a job, see initiate-job .

Note

This operation enables you to check the status of your job. However, it is strongly recommended that you set up an Amazon SNS topic and specify it in your initiate job request so that Amazon Glacier can notify the topic after it completes the job.

A job ID will not expire for at least 24 hours after Amazon Glacier completes the job.

An AWS account has full permission to perform all operations (actions). However, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) users don't have any permissions by default. You must grant them explicit permission to perform specific actions. For more information, see Access Control Using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) .

For more information about using this operation, see the documentation for the underlying REST API Describe Job in the Amazon Glacier Developer Guide .

Synopsis

  describe-job
--account-id <value>
--vault-name <value>
--job-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--account-id (string)

The AccountId value is the AWS account ID of the account that owns the vault. You can either specify an AWS account ID or optionally a single '- ' (hyphen), in which case Amazon Glacier uses the AWS account ID associated with the credentials used to sign the request. If you use an account ID, do not include any hyphens ('-') in the ID.

--vault-name (string)

The name of the vault.

--job-id (string)

The ID of the job to describe.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON account-id provided. The JSON account-id 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.

--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

The following command retrieves information about an inventory retrieval job on a vault named my-vault:

aws glacier describe-job --account-id - --vault-name my-vault --job-id zbxcm3Z_3z5UkoroF7SuZKrxgGoDc3RloGduS7Eg-RO47Yc6FxsdGBgf_Q2DK5Ejh18CnTS5XW4_XqlNHS61dsO4CnMW

Output:

{
    "InventoryRetrievalParameters": {
        "Format": "JSON"
    },
    "VaultARN": "arn:aws:glacier:us-west-2:0123456789012:vaults/my-vault",
    "Completed": false,
    "JobId": "zbxcm3Z_3z5UkoroF7SuZKrxgGoDc3RloGduS7Eg-RO47Yc6FxsdGBgf_Q2DK5Ejh18CnTS5XW4_XqlNHS61dsO4CnMW",
    "Action": "InventoryRetrieval",
    "CreationDate": "2015-07-17T20:23:41.616Z",
    "StatusCode": "InProgress"
}

The job ID can be found in the output of aws glacier initiate-job and aws glacier list-jobs. Amazon Glacier requires an account ID argument when performing operations, but you can use a hyphen to specify the in-use account.

StatusCode -> (string)

The status code can be InProgress , Succeeded , or Failed , and indicates the status of the job.

StatusMessage -> (string)

A friendly message that describes the job status.

For an archive retrieval job, this value is the checksum of the archive. Otherwise, this value is null.

The SHA256 tree hash value for the requested range of an archive. If the initiate-job request for an archive specified a tree-hash aligned range, then this field returns a value.

This field is null for the following:

  • Archive retrieval jobs that specify a range that is not tree-hash aligned
