[ aws . iam ]

get-saml-provider

Description

Returns the SAML provider metadocument that was uploaded when the IAM SAML provider resource object was created or updated.

Note

This operation requires Signature Version 4 .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-saml-provider
--saml-provider-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--saml-provider-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the SAML provider resource object in IAM to get information about.

For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) in the Amazon Web Services General Reference .

--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

To retrieve the SAML provider metadocument

This example retrieves the details about the SAML 2.0 provider whose ARM is arn:aws:iam::123456789012:saml-provider/SAMLADFS. The response includes the metadata document that you got from the identity provider to create the AWS SAML provider entity as well as the creation and expiration dates:

aws iam get-saml-provider --saml-provider-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:saml-provider/SAMLADFS

For more information, see Using SAML Providers in the Using IAM guide.

Output

SAMLMetadataDocument -> (string)

The XML metadata document that includes information about an identity provider.

CreateDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the SAML provider was created.

ValidUntil -> (timestamp)

The expiration date and time for the SAML provider.

Tags -> (list)

A list of tags that are attached to the specified IAM SAML provider. The returned list of tags is sorted by tag key. For more information about tagging, see Tagging IAM resources in the IAM User Guide .

(structure)

A structure that represents user-provided metadata that can be associated with an IAM resource. For more information about tagging, see Tagging IAM resources in the IAM User Guide .

Key -> (string)

The key name that can be used to look up or retrieve the associated value. For example, Department or Cost Center are common choices.

Value -> (string)

The value associated with this tag. For example, tags with a key name of Department could have values such as Human Resources , Accounting , and Support . Tags with a key name of Cost Center might have values that consist of the number associated with the different cost centers in your company. Typically, many resources have tags with the same key name but with different values.

Note

Amazon Web Services always interprets the tag Value as a single string. If you need to store an array, you can store comma-separated values in the string. However, you must interpret the value in your code.
