get-component

Description

Gets the recipe for a version of a component. Core devices can call this operation to identify the artifacts and requirements to install a component.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-component
[--recipe-output-format <value>]
--arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--recipe-output-format (string)

The format of the recipe.

Possible values:

  • JSON
  • YAML

--arn (string)

The ARN of the component version.

--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.

Examples

Example 1: To download a component's recipe in YAML format (Linux, macOS, or Unix)

The following get-component example downloads a Hello World component's recipe to a file in YAML format. This command does the following:

  1. Uses the --output and --query parameters to control the command's output. These parameters extract the recipe blob from the command's output. For more information about controlling output, see Controlling Command Output in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide.
  2. Uses the base64 utility. This utility decodes the extracted blob to the original text. The blob that is returned by a successful get-component command is base64-encoded text. You must decode this blob to obtain the original text.
  3. Saves the decoded text to a file. The final section of the command (> com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.json) saves the decoded text to a file.
aws greengrassv2 get-component \
    --arn arn:aws:greengrass:us-west-2:123456789012:components:com.example.HelloWorld:versions:1.0.0 \
    --recipe-output-format YAML \
    --query recipe \
    --output text | base64 --decode > com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.json

Example 2: To download a component's recipe in YAML format (Windows CMD)

The following get-component example downloads a Hello World component's recipe to a file in YAML format. This command uses the certutil utility.

aws greengrassv2 get-component ^
    --arn arn:aws:greengrass:us-west-2:675946970638:components:com.example.HelloWorld:versions:1.0.0 ^
    --recipe-output-format YAML ^
    --query recipe ^
    --output text > com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.yaml.b64

certutil -decode com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.yaml.b64 com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.yaml

For more information, see Manage components in the AWS IoT Greengrass V2 Developer Guide.

Example 3: To download a component's recipe in YAML format (Windows PowerShell)

The following get-component example downloads a Hello World component's recipe to a file in YAML format. This command uses the certutil utility.

aws greengrassv2 get-component `
    --arn arn:aws:greengrass:us-west-2:675946970638:components:com.example.HelloWorld:versions:1.0.0 `
    --recipe-output-format YAML `
    --query recipe `
    --output text > com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.yaml.b64

certutil -decode com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.yaml.b64 com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.yaml
