[ aws . healthlake ]



Gets the properties associated with the FHIR Data Store, including the Data Store ID, Data Store ARN, Data Store name, Data Store status, created at, Data Store type version, and Data Store endpoint.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--datastore-id <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--datastore-id (string)

The AWS-generated Data Store id. This is part of the ‘CreateFHIRDatastore’ output.

--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.


To describe a FHIR Data Store

The following describe-fhir-datastore example demonstrates how to find the properties of a Data Store in Amazon HealthLake.

    --datastore-id "1f2f459836ac6c513ce899f9e4f66a59" \
    --region us-east-1
