describe-event-details

Description

Returns detailed information about one or more specified events. Information includes standard event data (Amazon Web Services Region, service, and so on, as returned by DescribeEvents ), a detailed event description, and possible additional metadata that depends upon the nature of the event. Affected entities are not included. To retrieve the entities, use the DescribeAffectedEntities operation.

If a specified event can't be retrieved, an error message is returned for that event.

Note

This operation supports resource-level permissions. You can use this operation to allow or deny access to specific Health events. For more information, see Resource- and action-based conditions in the Health User Guide .

Synopsis

  describe-event-details
--event-arns <value>
[--locale <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--event-arns (list)

A list of event ARNs (unique identifiers). For example: "arn:aws:health:us-east-1::event/EC2/EC2_INSTANCE_RETIREMENT_SCHEDULED/EC2_INSTANCE_RETIREMENT_SCHEDULED_ABC123-CDE456", "arn:aws:health:us-west-1::event/EBS/AWS_EBS_LOST_VOLUME/AWS_EBS_LOST_VOLUME_CHI789_JKL101"

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--locale (string)

The locale (language) to return information in. English (en) is the default and the only supported value at this time.

--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

    --region us-east-1
