get-partition-indexes

Description

Retrieves the partition indexes associated with a table.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

get-partition-indexes is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: PartitionIndexDescriptorList

Synopsis

  get-partition-indexes
[--catalog-id <value>]
--database-name <value>
--table-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--catalog-id (string)

The catalog ID where the table resides.

--database-name (string)

Specifies the name of a database from which you want to retrieve partition indexes.

--table-name (string)

Specifies the name of a table for which you want to retrieve the partition indexes.

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Output

PartitionIndexDescriptorList -> (list)

A list of index descriptors.

(structure)

A descriptor for a partition index in a table.

IndexName -> (string)

The name of the partition index.

Keys -> (list)

A list of one or more keys, as KeySchemaElement structures, for the partition index.

(structure)

A partition key pair consisting of a name and a type.

Name -> (string)

The name of a partition key.

Type -> (string)

The type of a partition key.

IndexStatus -> (string)

The status of the partition index.

The possible statuses are:

  • CREATING: The index is being created. When an index is in a CREATING state, the index or its table cannot be deleted.
  • ACTIVE: The index creation succeeds.
  • FAILED: The index creation fails.
  • DELETING: The index is deleted from the list of indexes.

BackfillErrors -> (list)

A list of errors that can occur when registering partition indexes for an existing table.

(structure)

A list of errors that can occur when registering partition indexes for an existing table.

These errors give the details about why an index registration failed and provide a limited number of partitions in the response, so that you can fix the partitions at fault and try registering the index again. The most common set of errors that can occur are categorized as follows:

  • EncryptedPartitionError: The partitions are encrypted.
  • InvalidPartitionTypeDataError: The partition value doesn't match the data type for that partition column.
  • MissingPartitionValueError: The partitions are encrypted.
  • UnsupportedPartitionCharacterError: Characters inside the partition value are not supported. For example: U+0000 , U+0001, U+0002.
  • InternalError: Any error which does not belong to other error codes.

Code -> (string)

The error code for an error that occurred when registering partition indexes for an existing table.

Partitions -> (list)

A list of a limited number of partitions in the response.

(structure)

Contains a list of values defining partitions.

Values -> (list)

The list of values.

(string)

NextToken -> (string)

A continuation token, present if the current list segment is not the last.
