get-core-device

Description

Retrieves metadata for a Greengrass core device.

Note

IoT Greengrass relies on individual devices to send status updates to the Amazon Web Services Cloud. If the IoT Greengrass Core software isn't running on the device, or if device isn't connected to the Amazon Web Services Cloud, then the reported status of that device might not reflect its current status. The status timestamp indicates when the device status was last updated.

Core devices send status updates at the following times:

  • When the IoT Greengrass Core software starts
  • When the core device receives a deployment from the Amazon Web Services Cloud
  • When the status of any component on the core device becomes BROKEN
  • At a regular interval that you can configure , which defaults to 24 hours
  • For IoT Greengrass Core v2.7.0, the core device sends status updates upon local deployment and cloud deployment

Options

--core-device-thing-name (string)

The name of the core device. This is also the name of the IoT thing.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To get a core device

The following get-core-device example gets information about an AWS IoT Greengrass core device.

aws greengrassv2 get-core-device \
    --core-device-thing-name MyGreengrassCore

Output:

{
    "coreDeviceThingName": "MyGreengrassCore",
    "coreVersion": "2.0.3",
    "platform": "linux",
    "architecture": "amd64",
    "status": "HEALTHY",
    "lastStatusUpdateTimestamp": "2021-01-08T04:57:58.838000-08:00",
    "tags": {}
}

For more information, see Check core device status in the AWS IoT Greengrass V2 Developer Guide.

Output

coreDeviceThingName -> (string)

The name of the core device. This is also the name of the IoT thing.

coreVersion -> (string)

The version of the IoT Greengrass Core software that the core device runs. This version is equivalent to the version of the Greengrass nucleus component that runs on the core device. For more information, see the Greengrass nucleus component in the IoT Greengrass V2 Developer Guide .

platform -> (string)

The operating system platform that the core device runs.

architecture -> (string)

The computer architecture of the core device.

status -> (string)

The status of the core device. The core device status can be:

  • HEALTHY – The IoT Greengrass Core software and all components run on the core device without issue.
  • UNHEALTHY – The IoT Greengrass Core software or a component is in a failed state on the core device.

lastStatusUpdateTimestamp -> (timestamp)

The time at which the core device's status last updated, expressed in ISO 8601 format.

tags -> (map)

A list of key-value pairs that contain metadata for the resource. For more information, see Tag your resources in the IoT Greengrass V2 Developer Guide .

key -> (string)

value -> (string)
