[ aws . healthlake ]



Lists all FHIR Data Stores that are in the user’s account, regardless of Data Store status.

--filter (structure)

Lists all filters associated with a FHIR Data Store request.

DatastoreName -> (string)

Allows the user to filter Data Store results by name.

DatastoreStatus -> (string)

Allows the user to filter Data Store results by status.

CreatedBefore -> (timestamp)

A filter that allows the user to set cutoff dates for records. All Data Stores created before the specified date will be included in the results.

CreatedAfter -> (timestamp)

A filter that allows the user to set cutoff dates for records. All Data Stores created after the specified date will be included in the results.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "DatastoreName": "string",
  "DatastoreStatus": "CREATING"|"ACTIVE"|"DELETING"|"DELETED",
  "CreatedBefore": timestamp,
  "CreatedAfter": timestamp

--next-token (string)

Fetches the next page of Data Stores when results are paginated.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of Data Stores returned in a single page of a ListFHIRDatastoresRequest call.

--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 list FHIR Data Stores

The following list-fhir-datastores example shows to how to use the command and how users can filter results based on Data Store status in Amazon HealthLake.

aws healthlake list-fhir-datastores \
    --region us-east-1 \
    --filter DatastoreStatus=ACTIVE


    "DatastorePropertiesList": [
        "PreloadDataConfig": {
            "PreloadDataType": "SYNTHEA"
        "DatastoreName": "FhirTestDatastore",
        "DatastoreArn": "arn:aws:healthlake:us-east-1:<AWS Account ID>:datastore/<Datastore ID>",
        "DatastoreEndpoint": "<Datastore ID>/r4/",
        "DatastoreStatus": "ACTIVE",
        "DatastoreTypeVersion": "R4",
        "CreatedAt": 1605574003.209,
        "DatastoreId": "<Datastore ID>"
        "DatastoreName": "Demo",
        "DatastoreArn": "arn:aws:healthlake:us-east-1:<AWS Account ID>:datastore/<Datastore ID>",
        "DatastoreEndpoint": "<Datastore ID>/r4/",
        "DatastoreStatus": "ACTIVE",
        "DatastoreTypeVersion": "R4",
        "CreatedAt": 1603761064.881,
        "DatastoreId": "<Datastore ID>"
