Describe the attributes of an accelerator.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--accelerator-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the accelerator with the attributes that you want to describe.

--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.

AcceleratorAttributes -> (structure)

The attributes of the accelerator.

FlowLogsEnabled -> (boolean)

Indicates whether flow logs are enabled. The default value is false. If the value is true, FlowLogsS3Bucket and FlowLogsS3Prefix must be specified.

For more information, see Flow Logs in the AWS Global Accelerator Developer Guide .

FlowLogsS3Bucket -> (string)

The name of the Amazon S3 bucket for the flow logs. Attribute is required if FlowLogsEnabled is true . The bucket must exist and have a bucket policy that grants AWS Global Accelerator permission to write to the bucket.

FlowLogsS3Prefix -> (string)

The prefix for the location in the Amazon S3 bucket for the flow logs. Attribute is required if FlowLogsEnabled is true .

If you don’t specify a prefix, the flow logs are stored in the root of the bucket. If you specify slash (/) for the S3 bucket prefix, the log file bucket folder structure will include a double slash (//), like the following:
